Automation through emerging sciences such as artificial intelligence may reduce jobs in certain fields and increase gender earning gaps.  Frank et al. (2019) suggests data collection and analysis, responsive to changes, for understanding the impact of artificial intelligence on labour markets.   Automation may also increase specialization and outsourcing of technical jobs.  Mohler, Weder, and Wyss (2018) review the international labour trade of specialization and outsourcing and its effect on income losses and unemployment.  Increases in automation should renew interests in reducing gender earning gaps.  Lain (2019) models discrimination in the labour market to assess large gender earning gaps for the self employed sector.
