The aim is to decide on appropriate policies for mitigating risks of digitalisation for workers. The report finds that the diversity of tasks within jobs makes the risk of substitution of workers for machines less likely, while there remains a need to involve unions in the introduction and use of AI systems at work given the considerable impact of this technology. It is also mentioned that there seems to be no indication of the digital transformation’s potential to reduce or worsen gender inequalities in the labour market.
