People And Machines: A New Employer Survey
by Vassil Kirov | 14.06.2019

In April, the Warwick Institute for Employment Research published a report on the use of AI and automation. Undertaken for the UK’s representative body for human resource professionals, the Chartered Institute for Personnel & Development (CIPD), the report is based on an employer survey of 750+ organisations across the private, public and voluntary sectors that have invested in technology made in the past five years. It explores who was involved in decisions about the introduction and implementation of the technology, the impact of the technology on the business of the organisation and its employees, and any further plans for investments in new technology in the next two years. Findings focus on two types of AI and automation: that for physical tasks and that for cognitive tasks.
