Automation and the Future of Work
About half of all activities carried out by workers could potentially be automated. To be able to adapt and survive the age of automation and artificial intelligence (AI), the human workforce will need to acquire new skills and develop a level of comfort for how men will work alongside rapidly evolving machines.
These were the main findings of a McKinsey Global Institute report on how realizing automation’s full potential requires people and technology to work hand in hand.
The report also examined the impact of automation on employment and productivity in the global economy and how the emerging technology is already transforming the workforce.
