In this project, we would like to explore what kinds of skills can realistically be automated through the deployment of AI and its implications for job roles. Our research will focus on the current phase of AI-based automation to explore how human cognition, learning, and skill-building manifest themselves in job roles spanning the ‘’mundane’’ to the ‘’highly cognitive’’.
Our objectives are
1. To identify the categories of human skills that do not lend themselves well to automation,
2. To trace how de-skilling and re-skilling accompany automation, and
3. To recommend a framework for the ethical implementation of automation.
