Automation, workers and COVID‑19 / by Kristyn Frank and Marc Frenette.: CS45-28/1-2020-36E-PDF
"Over the past few decades, computer technology has gradually changed workplaces, leading to a reduction of routine and manual job tasks, and an increase in non‑routine, cognitive tasks. More recent developments in artificial intelligence and machine learning could be even more far‑reaching, as they are designed to execute tasks that were traditionally considered non‑automatable. While it is not known how quickly the latest technology will affect human jobs (for better or worse), this article describes which workers face the greatest risks of job transformation due to automation based on an approach developed by Frey and Osborne (2013) and Arntz, Gregory, and Zierahn (2016) and adapted to Canadian data. A longer study describes the approach in detail and presents more results (Frenette and Frank 2020)"--Page .
