MIT's Andrew McAfee and Erik Brynjolfsson published The Second Machine Age in , a relatively upbeat assessment of the impact of new technology on the workforce.   Writing for The Wall Street Journal, visiting lecturer Irving Wladawsky-Berger highlights the MIT Task Force on the Work of the Future’s findings on the impact of automation on Task Force underscores, “the need to provide workers with the skills required to meet these technology and workforce challenges, especially workers without a four-year college degree .

      Automation and the Workforce. That relates back to the question of how automation will affect the workforce in coming years. While most high-skill jobs requiring problem-solving and creativity are safe, and many low-skill jobs seem resilient to automation, Autor thinks middle-skill jobs like machinists and bookkeepers are most at risk.   How automation is changing work. concerned about the potential impact of their work. represent an enormous quantity of displaced workers.
