5 June 2018 the European Trade Union Institute (ETUI) launched a new Foresight Brief grappling with AI as a game changer for the world of work presenting "the results of a mapping exercise on AI’s impact on the world of work. It looks at the issues of work organisation and infrastructure, introduces the idea of ‘AI literacy’ for the workforce (as a necessary complement to technical reskilling), and details several AI risks for companies and workers. It also looks at aspects related to algorithmic decision making and the necessary establishment of an ethical and legal framework."
After debating the European Commission’s vision of AI for Europe the paper defines 5 game-changing AI dimensions:
the need to become AI literate
algorithmic decision making
ethics and law
The challenge of AI is its promise to revolutionise the way we work and live. It will trigger the creation of new business models and lead to a new and vastly different work organisation and new management models having strong impact on innovation, competitiveness and productivity.
