Advances in artificial intelligence and robotics have aroused fears of mass unemployment and turbulence in the labor market. Microsoft founder Bill Gates, among others, has advocated steps to rein in progress. But Robert D. Atkinson, founder of the nonpartisan Information Technology and Innovation Foundation, argues that tech innovations will only benefit America’s economy and workers – though workers will need support. Atkinson’s comprehensive report details policies to accommodate innovation and mitigate its costs. getAbstract recommends this analysis to policymakers, economists, executives and those who worry about losing their jobs to robots.
