The 2nd JILPT Tokyo Comparative Labor Policy Seminar 2018 (March 27-29)
Looking back at the policy responses to changes in employment structure and forms ―The future as seen from here

Technological innovation is leading to changes in the industrial structure, and employment structure and forms are approaching an era of further change. Most typically, Internet-related technology developed at a dramatic pace is no longer merely a tool for obtaining information; instead, it is now ushering in a society in which all kinds of things are being linked together through the Internet. Computing technology, which has also developed to an advanced level, has now reached the realm of artificial intelligence (AI), and it has even been suggested that it will not only complement human labor but could replace it in the near future. The consequence of these technological innovations is that humans are being liberated from spatial and temporal constraints, and as a result, employment structure and forms are also on the verge of change. Recognizing this point, the Japan Institute for Labour Policy and Training (JILPT) held the 2nd JILPT Tokyo Comparative Labor Policy Seminar 2018.
