AI and Employment Opportunities: Fostering Skill Development for a Prosperous Future

Fabien Petit ()

No 27, CEPEO Briefing Note Series from UCL Centre for Education Policy and Equalising Opportunities

Abstract: The 2023 AI Safety Summit brought attention to the profound changes AI can bring to our work lives. While we have heard predictions of a work-free future before, it is crucial to focus on what is happening now. AI is reshaping jobs, affecting which skills are required and who gets hired, and can create inequality. To thrive in this changing landscape, current and future generations need to learn skills that are key to the future, such as maths, programming, and social skills. UK Government must make sure people are ready for the future of work, so we can have a prosperous and fair society as AI technology advances.
