MIT Sloan Management Review

How Cities Should Prepare for Artificial Intelligence

Timocin Pervane and Kaijia Gu 

“City administrations need to examine the composition of jobs in their current workforce and what skills will be in high demand going forward. For example, Bertelsmann Foundation worked with the National Association of Workforce Boards to develop a detailed perspective on how Riverside, California, policy makers and workers are prepared for the future of work. Once cities determine what the future workforce will look like, they can better understand the extent and nature of the gap between where they are and where they need to be.”

Heather Landy 

“At Prudential Financial, the US insurance and investment giant where Falzon is vice chairman, those kinds of discussions are already happening.

Avoiding the Technology Trap in the Future of Work

Adi Gaskell

“Oxford University researchers Carl Benedikt Frey shot to public attention in 2013 when he and colleague Michael Osborne released research in which they predicted that 47% of jobs could be automated within the next decade or so. The research was arguably the first study that attempted to predict how technologies such as artificial intelligence and robotics would impact the labor market.”
