– Automation and AI are accelerating the demand for technological skills over the next 10-15 years, while the need for basic cognitive skills, and physical and manual skills will decline. Through 2030, the fastest growing need will be for advanced IT and programming skills — 90% growth compared to 2016, followed by basic digital skills, with an increase by 69% in the United States and by 65% in Europe.

– For an additional average of 25% jobs, 50-70% of tasks are likely to change significantly because of automation.

-A Basic (or Universal) Income Guarantee (BIG/UIG) would unleash creativity and encourage new work forms that could reduce unemployment, underemployment, and work-related health risks. Some 68% of EU-28 support the principle of a BI. Previous pilot programs showed clear benefits and more pilots are being currently conducted and planned. In New Zealand, a BI is being actively debated and an NGO group is promoting the idea and keeps track of developments around the world.”
