Principal Investigator: Alex Rutherford
Postdoctoral Fellow: Inho Hong
Robotics and Artificial Intelligence technologies are expected to fundamentally transform the nature of work, to potentially eliminate many jobs, and to create entirely new jobs. While these questions are typically studied by labor economists, this theme complements the traditional approach using methods from data science, complex systems, and network science to shed new light on these processes.
