Our Mission

The AI, Analytics, and the Future of Work Initiative addresses critical issues regarding the economic and social transformations brought by digital technology. Through research, convening, and education, the initiative informs business leaders and policy makers on how to devise solutions that help the most vulnerable members of society and foster the common good.

Housed in the McDonough School of Business and serving as a resource for the Georgetown University community, policymakers, and academics, the AI, Analytics, and the Future of Work Initiative addresses how technology is transforming the economy, society, and the nature of work. We conduct and disseminate research that can form leaders who understand and actively engage with the challenges and opportunities of emerging workplace technologies. 

We envision a world in which technological advances serve people. We actively study how new technologies can be deployed to help individuals improve their everyday life and make them more productive members of society. 

By combining Georgetown’s rich tradition, global orientation, and access to policymakers through its Washington, D.C., location, with insights from an advisory group of visionaries who are at the forefront of technology and the future of work, our goal is to develop innovative solutions and solve problems for the common good in three focus areas.

Artificial intelligence and technology

The Promises and Pitfalls of AI

We develop and study AI algorithms that help both individuals and professionals make decisions. We assess the suitability of such machine learning tools across different domains, the most significant barriers to adoption, and the implications for individual privacy.

Technology and the Workplace

We assess the workforce disruption of new technologies, the need for new skills and workplace roles, and the consequent importance of equitable access to lifelong learning. We also research how companies can leverage technology to build high-performance organizations and solve previously intractable problems for the common good.
