Rapid technological innovation threatens to leave much of the global workforce behind. Today's economy juxtaposes white-hot demand for skilled labor against stagnant employment prospects for workers unprepared to participate in a digital economy. It is a moment of peril and opportunity for every country, with outcomes measured in long-term capital allocation and the life satisfaction of billions of workers. To meet the moment, governments and markets must find ways to quicken the rate at which…

Forecasting Task-Shares and Characterizing Occupational Change across Industry Sectors
Artificial Intelligence (AI) has started to transform our economy and society, more specifically, AI has the potential to make both labor and machines more productive while displacing certain human
Learning Occupational Task-Shares Dynamics for the Future of Work
A novel methodology of dynamic task shares is applied to a large dataset of online job postings to explore how exactly occupational task demands have changed over the past decade of AI innovation, especially across high, mid and low wage occupations.
An optimized model using LSTM network for demand forecasting
A Comparison of ARIMA and LSTM in Forecasting Time Series
The empirical studies conducted and reported in this article show that deep learning-based algorithms such as LSTM outperform traditional-based algorithm such as ARIMA model and the average reduction in error rates obtained by L STM was between 84 - 87 percent when compared to ARimA indicating the superiority of LSTm to AR IMA.
A CNN–LSTM model for gold price time-series forecasting
A new deep learning forecasting model is proposed for the accurate prediction of gold price and movement that exploits the ability of convolutional layers for extracting useful knowledge and learning the internal representation of time-series data as well as the effectiveness of long short-term memory layers for identifying short- term and long-term dependencies.
The Great Reversal in the Demand for Skill and Cognitive Tasks
This paper argues that several of the poor labor market outcomes observed in the Great Recession can be traced back to a change in the demand pattern for skilled workers that started with the tech
A Comparison between ARIMA, LSTM, and GRU for Time Series Forecasting
This research aims to compare three different machine learning models in making a time series forecast of the Bitcoin's price dataset, and shows that the ARIMA model gave better results than the deep learning-based regression models.
How General Is Human Capital? A Task‐Based Approach
This article studies how portable skills accumulated in the labor market are. Using rich data on tasks performed in occupations, we propose the concept of task‐specific human capital to measure
