This is the first paper in a new series of ITU's Issue Paper on Emerging Trends, which aims to identify and recognize
emerging trends in the telecommunication/ICTs environment, and share the information with
all ITU membership to enhance our capacity to understand the force transforming our society with
the development of telecommunication/ICT.
Contributed by the McKinsey Global Institute, the economic and business research arm of
McKinsey & Company, it offers a framework for thinking about how to model the economic
impact of AI, putting this exercise in the context of the research on the dynamically changing world
of work in the light of automation, the need for a skills revolution, and the increasing and potential
use of AI by companies.
