3rd IDSC of IZA/University of Luxembourg Workshop: Matching Workers and Jobs Online - New Developments and Opportunities for Social Science and PracticeBonn, Germany
Like many forms of economic exchange, the process of matching workers to jobs has rapidly migrated online in the last two decades. Thus, understanding how online labor matching mechanisms work; how they affect economic outcomes like employment, wages, and inequality; and learning how to take advantages of the ‘big data’ that are generated by online markets all have important implications for the future of labor.Madrid, Spain
Leaders of the employment and recruitment industry, policymakers, academics, HR practitioners and trade unionists from around the world will come together with a single purpose: to exchange views on how to steer a labour market in transformation.
Will 2019 be 'the first year of blockchain'? Just like iPhone hit the scene in 2007 and played a vital role in shaping the current smartphone-centered society, the appearance of 'Libra', a crypto currency developed by Facebook, indicates great social changes led by blockchain technologies.
Blockchain is a technology that enables safe and secure data transaction by registering data in "ledgers" that are irrevocable. While crypto currency receives the most coverage in the media as a use of blockchain technology, there is a vast range of uses for the technology for governing any form of business and other transactions in areas ranging from healthcare to preference data analysis. It is thought that it will have more impact on society than the internet as an 'infrastructure' in fostering new industries. However, on the other hand, there are rising concerns about data hoarding of giant global platformers and the possible disrupting effect of blockchain technology on national monetary policies.
Based on this, the Research Institute of Economy, Trade and Industry (RIETI) has been conducting various front-line research studies and analyses related to blockchain technology. In this symposium, in addition to President Yano presenting our research results, Mr. Vogelsteller, a leading developer in the area of blockchain technology, will give a presentation and we will host a panel discussion with various top-level panelists from different backgrounds. Through these programs, we would like to discuss ideal ways of utilizing blockchain technology as a system for fostering next-generation industries.
