A data-driven network model can be used to study occupational mobility and automation by analyzing how workers transition into new jobs in response to automation scenarios. The model takes into account the network structure of occupational mobility and its impact on unemployment levels    . At a macro level, the model reproduces the Beveridge curve, a key stylized fact in the labor market, providing insights into its counter-clockwise cyclicality   . At a micro level, the model provides occupation-specific estimates of changes in short and long-term unemployment corresponding to automation shocks . The network structure plays […]

The big question about Artificial Intelligence, other than whether it will destroy human civilization , is the effect it will have on employment. Large language models already seem poised to automate large fractions of the work in certain industries , and the technology is only getting more capable.
There are, broadly, two schools of thought about this issue, what we might call the optimists and the pessimists. The optimists note that we’ve been automating work for hundreds of years, and it has yet to result in sustained, large-scale unemployment. Certain jobs, like telephone switchboard operators or dockworkers , get automated […]
