"The impact of Artificial Intelligence on the labour market: What do we know so far?"

by Lane, M; Saint-Martin, A (2021)


This literature review takes stock of what is known about the impact of artificial intelligence on the labour market, including the impact on employment and wages, how AI will transform jobs and skill needs, and the impact on the work environment. The purpose is to identify gaps in the evidence base and inform future OECD research on AI and the labour market.

Surveillance at work is not necessarily new, but AI tools can only exacerbate the situation, not least because it is the very way those tools perform – every bit of data is potentially valuable (p.49)
