In order to gain insights into workers’ experiences, the White House plans to gather information from workers and conduct a listening session with experts, researchers, and policymakers.

This initiative aims to assess how AI is being used by employers and its effects on the workforce. To facilitate discussions on this topic, a listening session will be organized, involving gig work experts, researchers, and policymakers. The session will focus on the use of automated technologies for surveillance, monitoring, and evaluation by employers.
Addressing Concerns and Unveiling New Measures

Report on AI’s Impact on Education
The Department of Education will release a report examining how AI affects teaching, learning, and research. This report will provide valuable insights into the integration of AI technology in educational settings and its implications for students, educators, and researchers.
