Artificial intelligence commission needed to predict impact, says CBI
Business group urges government to launch commission to assess consequences of AI on jobs and increasing productivity
Britain’s biggest employers are calling for a commission to examine the impact of artificial intelligence on jobs.
Amid predictions of a workplace revolution threatening one in five jobs across the UK, the CBI is urging Theresa May to launch the commission from early 2018. It said companies and trade unions should be involved and the commission should help to set out ways to increase productivity and economic growth as well looking into the impact of AI.
