The Future of Work

My group focused on the future of work. Ideas may not be revolutionary but what matters is that we converged on a set issues that we would like government to push forward.

1. Change our narrative about humans-AI relations

The dominant narrative about Artificial Intelligence today is that it will outsmart humans and lead to the end - or deep transformation - of humanity as we know it.

2. From a society of workers to a working society

How can we replace jobs that are disappearing ? How can we give everyone a job ? Once again the problem is framing: why do we need jobs ? Shouldn’t we talk more about income, fulfilment and dignity ?

3. Train for the future

Schools should be empowered to teach skills rather than careers. In an accelerated world the ability to think fast and slow becomes crucial. Critical thinking, flexibility and creative problem solving should be the cornerstone of education along with Coding and Entrepreneurship.

4. Corporate responsibility

Companies should help governments understand the evolution of work and work relations. Companies should give governments access to data about employees and working practices.
