Humans vs Robots: How lack of computer skills make for uneven race

0 191

In the race against robots, workers in some countries are starting with a significant handicap.

A report from the OECD shows a sharp contrast in the extent to which workers in different countries engage with technology, whether writing emails or programming. That matters because those who don’t use it much in their jobs will need more training and face the greater disruption of their work lives.

In some countries, people “often lack the foundation skills necessary to flourish in the digital world,” the OECD said. Those in many northern European countries are ahead in the transformation of the workplace as they already use Information and Communications Technology intensively, it said.

“It is urgent for countries to focus on building the skills of workers whose jobs are at high risk of automation,” the OECD said.
