AI poses a risk of automating and degrading jobs around the world, creating harmful effects to vulnerable workers’ livelihoods and well-being. How can we deliberately account for the impacts on workers when designing and commercializing AI products in order to benefit workers’ prospects while simultaneously boosting companies’ bottom lines and increasing overall productivity? The Partnership on AI’s recently released report Redesigning AI for Shared Prosperity: An Agenda puts forward a proposal for such accounting. The Agenda outlines a blueprint for how industry and government can contribute to AI that advances shared prosperity.
