Addressing the theme of Global Talent in the Age of Artificial Intelligence, this seventh edition of GTCI explores how the development of Artificial Intelligence (AI) is changing the nature of work and forcing a re-evaluation of workplace practices, corporate structures and innovation ecosystems.
As machines and algorithms continue to affect a multiplicity of tasks and responsibilities and almost every job gets reinvented, the right talent is required not only to carry out new responsibilities and ways to work, but also to capture value from this transformative technology. Which companies, countries or cities are best positioned to benefit from the AI revolution? How can we guarantee that a joint effort be made to ensure that AI-driven increased productivity benefits society as a whole?
Many countries are struggling to leverage the skill sets of their workforce or to train them in the relevant skills for the future.
Countries are competing globally to grow better talent; attract the talent they need; and retain those workers who contribute to competitiveness, innovation, and growth. Countries seek to put economic and social policies in place that will facilitate this. In such a context, governments, businesses, and various other stakeholders need quantitative instruments that can inform their decisions and can help them design and implement better policies in areas such as education, employment, and immigration, to name a few. This is the purpose of the GTCI.
