How Highly Automated Environments and Breakthroughs in Artificial Intelligence Bring about Innovative Kinds of Skills and Employment Disruptions, Altering the Nature of Business Process and Affecting the Path of Economic Growth.

The provided report is about technology-driven economic growth. Researchers have found evidence on how highly programmed environments and innovations in artificial intelligence bring about ground-breaking kinds of skills and employment breakdowns. The study uses information from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, CEA calculations, Frey and Osborne (2013), Gartner, National Post, OECD, Pew Research Center, Statista, and YouGov. With this data, researchers performed analyses that give an approximate percentage of occupations which are at risk of being replaced by computers. In addition, the study explores the possibility of computerisation by an occupation’s median hourly wage, the impact of AI automation on jobs, the amount of U.S. employees concerned they might lose their job to expanding technology, and who say they would oppose certain policies in the event that robots and computers will be able to do humans’ job. Research has a good structure; however, word choice confuses the reader and make it harder to understand the idea of the text.

This essay discusses possible outcomes of the shift towards automation technology in the labour market. The author performed research on expanding technology, labour market crisis, and unemployment using information from OECD/PIAAC, Pew Research Center, PwC, and The Economist. The writer created analyses to estimate the percentage of people who say that shift towards artificial intelligence technologies will lead to new jobs with higher salaries and jobs that will be removed by computers in the future. The essay claims that future progress can be achieved by the change to new cutting-edge learning ways of human capital. The essay comes into the conclusion that economies should use pioneering technological opportunities and establish a process of innovation and productive transformation that leads to more jobs. The structure of the reading is neat; the essay comes into clear conclusion.

The article provides information on some parts associated with impacts of technology on libraries. The discussed topic include details on an overview of the Google Inc. and page rank system that started to tame the web while producing predictions that libraries would soon become outdated. The author of the article is librarian himself and uses mostly books to provide sources for his text. The reading concludes on the fact, that the innovation progress is inevitable and inescapable. As history shows, we always can make a room for innovations.

Jobs at risk from AI productivity boost: The Trades Union Congress has called for a debate about the future of employment, as uncertainty grows around the many roles becoming automated or replaced by artificial intelligence.

The article emphases on the move of the Trades Union Congress (TUC) in calling the attention of the British government to warrant the employment security of several workers in the country. The secretary of TUC Frances O’Grady claims that the country must make most of the financial benefits that new technologies brought, such as artificial intelligence and robots. Also emphasized is the necessity to protect workers and anticipate the changes up front to boost the lives of the working people. It is mentioned in the article that artificial intelligence would never replace the need for real people, which leads to the conclusion that people need to reevaluate some jobs that have usually been considered low-paid. Word choice of this article makes the reading process engaging, the elucidation on the topic also takes readers’ attention.
Artificial intelligence begins driving the employment process. (2017). HR Specialist: Pennsylvania Employment Law, 12(5), 7. Retrieved from https://login.gbcprx01.georgebrown.ca/login?url=https://search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?direct=true&db=b9h&AN=122971971&site=eds-live&scope=site
The article performs a report on the growing impact of artificial intelligence on the employment process. It cites U.S. federal and state laws that manage hiring, promotions, and recruiting such as the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Age Discrimination in Employment Act. Among the benefits offered by artificial intelligence are an efficient workplace and greater independence. The article is from the computer weekly journal and the author doesn’t put the references in it. Therefore, it might not be taken as credible, as the scholar article. However, weekly updated information is a good way to get first-hand data. The study is made in the journal way, it has a clear idea and a simple structure.
