These tests represent what is in fact humankind’s longstanding obsession with expanding its engineering capabilities to allow machines to perform tasks that have previously been confined to workers. While many barriers to automation have recently been overcome, allowing sophisticated algorithms and autonomous vehicles to substitute for workers in a wider range of domains, creativity arguably still provides a big obstacle to automation. In this paper, we examine the potential quantitative impact of the expanding scope of automation on creative employment, and related implications for the demand for skills and the future of inequality.
