  • How will robotics, AI and big data shape European societies?

    Current technological innovations in robotics, artificial intelligence, data and computing power are nothing short of revolutionary. These developments invite many pressing societal questions. ​How will work change? Will jobs be destroyed? What new jobs will be created? What skills should we learn? Can everybody master these skills? How should they best be taught?

    But also: who will benefit most from these technological developments? How do inequalities change? Are social groups affected differently? And, importantly, what can governments do to cushion technological inequalities?

    TECHNEQUALITY brings together a multidisciplinary group of leading scholars from Europe's most renowned universities and research institutes to answer these questions and work with policy-makers to co-create policies that work.
