International conference on AI in Work, Innovation, Productivity and Skills
OECD - 01/02/2021
The 2021 OECD International Conference on Artificial Intelligence in Work, Innovation, Productivity and Skills (AI-WIPS) brings together technical and policy experts to discuss the fast-evolving changes in AI capabilities and uptake and to assess their implications for labour markets and societies.
AI is reshaping economies and societies across the world, offering new products and services, and promising to generate productivity gains, improve efficiency and lower costs. Currently it is playing a role in every stage of the fight against COVID-19, from scientific discovery and diagnostics to tracking the impact of the pandemic on societies and supporting remote learning and working. But the
adoption of AI also raises questions and fuels anxieties, changing and perhaps accelerating the range of tasks that can be automated, and transforming the way work is carried out.
As part of its AI in Work, Innovation, Productivity and Skills (AI-WIPS) project, this conference aims to advance the policy debate so that the adoption of AI in the world of work can be effective, beneficial, people-centred and accepted by the population.
