Domestic Public Policy

MIT Initiative on Technology and the Future of Labor

Grant Year: 2018


Daron Acemoglu, David Autor, and John Van Reenen will direct the research and publications program of the MIT Initiative on Technology and the Future of Labor. They will undertake research exploring how advances in automation, including robotics and artificial intelligence, might shape the future of employment. They will address questions such as what kind of jobs are most likely to be at risk from automation, whether artificial intelligence can displace highly educated workers, and what lessons can be learned from earlier episodes of disruptive automation. The project’s findings will appear in a series of papers, reports, and articles.
