Profound change is coming, but roles for humans remain Digital computers have transformed work in almost every sector of the economy over the past several decades (1). We are now at the beginning of an even larger and more rapid transformation due to recent advances in machine learning (ML), which is capable of accelerating the pace of automation itself. However, although it is clear that ML is a “general purpose technology,” like the steam engine and electricity, which spawns a plethora of… 

What Can Machines Learn, and What Does It Mean for Occupations and the Economy?

TLDR
The rubric evaluating task potential for ML in Brynjolfsson and Mitchell (2017) is applied to build measures of "Suitability for Machine Learning" (SML) and it is found that ML affects different occupations than earlier automation waves.

Digitalization and the Future of Work: Macroeconomic Consequences

Computing power continues to grow at an enormous rate. Simultaneously, more and better data is increasingly available and Machine Learning methods have seen significant breakthroughs in the recent

Call for Papers, Issue 1/2021

TLDR
Artificial Intelligence, and in particular algorithms for machine learning, are on their way to become a key technology for the digital transformation and psychological, ethical, and cultural aspects of human–machine interaction will pose new challenges for decision-making and may lead to unintended consequences of AI implementation and use.

Toward understanding the impact of artificial intelligence on labor

TLDR
The barriers that inhibit scientists from measuring the effects of AI and automation on the future of work are discussed and a decision framework that focuses on resilience to unexpected scenarios in addition to general equilibrium behavior is recommended.

AI and Its Implications for Organisations

TLDR
This chapter presents an overview of AI’s use in organisations by discussing the core components of AI, and offers some recommendations for industries to consider regarding the development and implementation of AI systems.

Polanyi&Apos;S Paradox and the Shape of Employment Growth

In 1966, the philosopher Michael Polanyi observed, "We can know more than we can tell... The skill of a driver cannot be replaced by a thorough schooling in the theory of the motorcar; the knowledge

Human-level control through deep reinforcement learning

TLDR
This work bridges the divide between high-dimensional sensory inputs and actions, resulting in the first artificial agent that is capable of learning to excel at a diverse array of challenging tasks.

The Growing Importance of Social Skills in the Labor Market

The labor market increasingly rewards social skills. Between 1980 and 2012, jobs requiring high levels of social interaction grew by nearly 12 percentage points as a share of the U.S. labor force.

TLDR
The reduction of multidimensional density to one-dimensional density as in the proof of Lemma 1 had previously been obtained by Dahmen and Micchelli, using the same techniques, in work on ridge regression.

ImageNet: A large-scale hierarchical image database

TLDR
A new database called “ImageNet” is introduced, a large-scale ontology of images built upon the backbone of the WordNet structure, much larger in scale and diversity and much more accurate than the current image datasets.

The Tacit Dimension

TLDR
'Without symbolism the life of man would be like that of the prisoners in the cave of Plato's simile; it could find no access to the "ideal world" which is opened to him from different sides by religion, art, philosophy, science.

Mathematics of Control , Signals , and Systems

TLDR
Potential topics include, but are not limited to controllability, observability, and realization theory, stability theory of nonlinear systems, system identification, mathematical aspects of switched, hybrid, networked, and stochastic systems, and system theoretic aspects of optimal control and other controller design techniques.
