Boston among top 5 metros least vulnerable to automation
January 31, 2019
- According to a new report by the Brookings Institution, a quarter of US employment is at risk due to automation and artificial intelligence (AI) in the coming decades.
- Impacts on the job market, however, vary depending on occupation, geography, and demographic groups. The Boston region is in the top 5 nationally as least vulnerable to automation, along with Washington DC, San Jose, New York, and Durham. These areas are relatively protected by high educational attainment, robust education and health institutions, and specializations in tech and business and financial services. Continued investments in our growth and technology will ensure Boston can make the best of these changes.
