Antonio Paolillo, a researcher at the Dalle Molle Institute for Artificial Intelligence USI-SUPSI, has contributed to a publication by the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL) and the University of Lausanne (UNIL) in the prestigious journal Science Robotics to investigate the impacts of robotics and artificial intelligence on the job market.

Nowadays, we are witnessing a constant development of technological devices that can replace or assist humans in many areas of work.
Speed is the factor that most characterises current change. The sudden introduction of new systems or technological means can sometimes prevent workers from having the necessary time to adapt to their use.

Antonio Paolillo, a researcher at the Dalle Molle Institute for Artificial Intelligence USI-SUPSI, previously working at the Laboratory of Intelligent Systems of EPFL, contributed to a research project conducted by the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL) and the University of Lausanne (UNIL) to investigate the impact of the technological development introduced by robotics and AI on the job market.

«Through our analysis, we investigated the tasks that present the highest risk of automation in order to propose resilient alternatives to workers, i.e. tasks already aligned with employees' skills to facilitate their role conversion, while presenting a lower risk of automation,» explains Paolillo.

The results of the project, which involved the collaboration of economists, artificial intelligence and robotics experts, were recently published in the prestigious journal Science Robotics (impact factor 2021: 23.748).
