In the 2020 report, Nicolas Schmit, current European Commissioner in charge of the employment and social rights portfolio, explains how the Luxembourg addresses the opportunities and changes brought about by AI. He underlines the importance of good performance of ICT infrastructures, the need for guarantees in terms of data protection and privacy, the challenge of establishing new relationships between man and machine and the key role of upskilling.
“In Luxembourg, we want to be a data hub. Therefore, we need to encourage ways to own or share powerful computers that can handle big data. Such an approach will have a significant impact on employment, because repetitive jobs disappear and new ones are created. Certain sectors, such as finance, the key to the Luxembourg economy, will be profoundly transformed: the banks of tomorrow will be closer to fintech. This means that the changes will not only be technological but also organizational. "
He adds: "I'm not pessimistic about the future of AI and jobs, because I think that this future depends on us, on the way we organize the world of work. We probably have to totally change the way people work. This can bring new great opportunities. "
