Artificial intelligence and the skill premium – Wolfram Community

The compagnon notebook for our paper has been selected into the Staff Picks into the Wolfram community blog:

This notebook aims to replicate all the computations in the paper “Artificial intelligence and the skill premium” (

Section 1 provides the notations and the assumptions that will be required for the calculations. Section 2 introduces the production function and a more readable notation. Then, Section 3 computes the wage rates for low- and high-skilled workers thanks to partial derivatives. Section 4 provides the wage-skill premium. Sections 5 and 6 calculate the partial derivatives of the different wage rates relative to industrial robots and AI. Section 7 provides interactive 2-D and 3-D plots to visualize the evolutions of the wage skill premium for different values of the parameters and the variables.
