Digital trends in the Danish labour market: An examination of the positive and negative aspects of the next digital revolution

Machinery and technology have always been a major driving force for growth, and in many countries advancements have resulted in a workforce well able to exploit the power of machines and computers to create prosperity for the Danish people. Nevertheless, the current changes in the way in which computers are able to handle an increasing degree of complexity in task solving is a new development that potentially can change the future labour market. Therefore, the Think Tank Cevea and HK Danmark have prepared a report that highlights different aspects of the next digital wave and what effects it might have. The report is divided into three chapters. Each chapter examines one or more areas where researchers believe computers are likely to play a major role in the labour market.

Danish: Maskiner og teknologi har altid været en stor drivkraft for vækst, og herhjemme har vi i mange år formået at skabe en arbejdsstyrke, der kan udnytte maskinernes og computernes kraft til at skabe velstand for danskerne. Ikke desto mindre udgør de nuværende forandringer i måden hvorpå computere er i stand til at varetage en stigende grad af kompleksitet i opgaveløsning et nybrud, der potentielt kan omkalfatre fremtidens arbejdsmarked. Derfor har Tænketanken Cevea og HK Danmark udarbejdet en rapport, der belyser forskellige aspekter af den næste digitale bølge og hvilke effekter den kunne tænkes at have. Rapporten er delt op i tre kapitler. Hvert kapitel undersøger ét eller flere områder, hvor forskere mener, at maskiner og computere formentlig vil spille en stor rolle for arbejdsmarkedet.
