Disruption Index Technical Report

As automation and data-driven AI technologies are more widely adopted across more sectors and impact more job roles, the labour market in the UK is experiencing profound and ongoing changes. If we are to tailor intelligent responses to these changes precipitated by the complex interplay between technology adoption and work – whether through regulation, policy or investment, or otherwise – we ideally need a measure of the scale of these changes, and their geographic distribution.

This Technical Report presents the scope of measurement and the methodology underpinning the construction of the Disruption Index.
