This podcast investigates the possibilities of using big data to analyse ongoing work trends in both developed and developing economies as a means of anticipating future work needs. It discusses different types of big data such as online job vacancies, and geospatial data sources such as satellite imagery with a view to seeing how such information can track and measure economic growth and other indicators in both developing and developed countries and help inform policy design and implementation. The podcast reflects discussions held during the webinar organized as part of the joint EU funded ILO-JRC project “Building partnerships on the future of work”.
The future of work podcast series was created on behalf of the Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).
This podcast is also available on Spotify and Apple Podcasts.
