Launch of the Global Commission Report on the Future of Work
31 Jan 2019 -  New technologies along with structural transformation driven by changes in demographics, globalization and climate change will bring immense economic opportunities but also potential challenges that could impact workers and produce unfair longer-term distributional effects. While it is all too common to envisage a jobless future in the face of robotics and artificial intelligence, there is no clear and compelling evidence that the effects of new automation technologies will be fundamentally different from past waves of automation.

The event is organized by the International Labour Organization (ILO).
