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 enormous skills challenge facing Europe – and the novel way that artificial intelligence can be used to unlock talent and resolve skills bottlenecks. The policy brief sets out a six-point programme of “dos and don’ts” for the artificial intelligence act in the final stages of negotiation.
