Labor, Education, and Technology

The United States is in the midst of a generation-long structural shift in labor, productivity, jobs, and pay. This shift began in the 1980s and is set to accelerate with the increasing adoption of advanced robotics and machine learning technologies. We are experiencing the most important changes in the nature of work since the Industrial Revolution, changes that affect nearly everything, from crime to electoral outcomes to national competitiveness.

Joseph Kopser and Bret Boyd recently led a discussion with business and community leaders to inform thinking around how proactive measures to manage this transition.
