What AI Can Do for Workers

As discussions around the Artificial Intelligence Act intensify and key stakeholders are weighing in upon its submission to the European Parliament and the European Commission, the Lisbon Council launches What Artificial Intelligence Can Do for Workers and What Skilled Workers Can Do for the World: Why AI and Machine Learning Are Crucial for Addressing Skills Shortages, Driving Employment and Ensuring a Socially-Driven Transition to the Data Economy, a new policy brief setting out the skills gaps and challenges facing Europe – and the novel way that artificial intelligence can be used to unlock talent and resolve skills bottlenecks.
