Technology is getting smarter, taking on cognitive abilities and tasks once thought the sole domain of people. In the last few years, declining costs and greater technological sophistication has made automation more accessible to large and small companies alike, increasing the speed and scale of technology uptake, with a range of implications for labor markets around the world. It is essential that we approach this wave of innovation in a way that creates widespread benefits for people, society, and business.

Coupled with climate change, achieving inclusive prosperity for 9 billion people without exceeding planetary boundaries is the defining challenge of the 21st century.
