The report by Citi GPS makes an important contribution to the debate about how technological developments will shape work and the labour market.

The Government’s Horizon Scanning Programme Team is working with officials across departments to explore the implications for policy – including employment – of emerging technologies. Through this work, the team has been in touch with the authors of the Citi GPS report from the Oxford Martin School since last year.
