The Great Decoupling

A lightning talk from the session focused on the themes of Labor and Inequality at the 2016 Experts Workshop, given by by Eric Brynjolfsson (MIT Initiative on the Digital Economy).

Each session contained a series of “lightning talks,” or brief thought-starters, organized around the four core themes for the day: Labor, Inequality, Healthcare, and Ethics; these talks aimed to provide a critical analysis of AI’s impacts and an exploration of AI’s current deployments and uses.
