Are you curious about the implications of automation and robotization on careers in various industries?
Join this session to learn about a novel research that examined approximately 16 million individual resumes across the United States to understand the implications of automation and robotization on careers in manufacturing, retail, and service industries. In this talk, our guest contributor, Pinar Yildirim—an associate professor of Marketing at The Wharton School—will discuss the findings of her research on the multipronged impact of AI and Machine Learning technologies on the US labor market, in the contexts of similarly disruptive technologies in the past, and the recent advent of Generative AI technologies that are transforming the US labor market as we speak.
Based on the takeaways of her novel research, Professor Yildirim will share additional insights on why the recent proliferation of Generative AI technologies can be different from past innovations, how businesses are uniquely impacted, and what can plausibly be inferred about the implications of Generative AI technologies to labor markets outside of the US context.
