The Future of Work: Business and Public-Sector Challenges
Presentation by Joseph Kopser and Bret Boyd on the future of work and accompanying challenges for business and public-sector leaders.
Aging Workforces and the Politics of Immigration
Many first world countries with aging workforces will ultimately need to incentivize immigration to offset labor shortages, leading to difficult political decisions.
Meta-Learning and the Skills to Learn New Skills
The gap between the skills needed by the U.S. workforce and the skills they currently have is widening, particularly in the field of advanced modeling and simulation that can enhance U.S. competitiveness.
Job Creation and the Robot Apocalypse
The coming “robot apocalypse” can both save and create jobs in the developed world, especially in the United States, which has barely scratched the surface on the application of robotics to manufacturing.
Outsourcing, Automation, and Econometrics
It is important to look beyond statistics to understand how and when jobs are displaced by technology, business process innovation, or outsourcing to low cost countries.
Universal Basic Prosperity
Technology and automation will change the types of jobs that are available, but workers will continue to be needed to support economic progress and prosperity.
The Great Divide: Meeting the Challenges of Our Future Workforce
The United States is in the midst of a generation-long structural shift in labor, productivity, jobs, and pay, which is set to accelerate with the increasing adoption of advanced robotics and machine learning technologies. Proactive solutions are needed at the business, community, state, and national level to ensure we have the tools needed to remain competitive.
Robotics and Labor Scarcity
Robotics and automation are becoming increasingly important solutions for labor shortage issues in countries with aging populations.
Demographics and Aging Economic Models
Declining birth rates in most developed economies are leading to aging populations and shrinking labor pools, changing the shape of both production and consumption.
