The accelerated progress that Artificial Intelligence has been experiencing will undoubtedly create new opportunities of individuals, society, and the economy, however without the correct policies in place to regulate the technology the economy may experience a disruption in our labor markets. Increased Artificial Intelligence (AI) progress is beginning to suggest that it will absorb jobs that have required human labor in the past. The significance of the technology is that it is able to learn from patterns in data that it encounters and develop its own laws on how it will perceive new information, which is why soon AI may overcome some of the advantages that human labor has over technology and robotics. Although AI will bring benefits to the economy, they are not without their disadvantages as well. Similarly to the industrial revolution, it is expected that there will be some severe disruptions in the established livelihoods of many Americans, this can be expressed through the Real Business Cycle Theory. If there are expected disruptions in the labor market in the short term the goal is to minimize the negative effects through a Keynesian approach to policy in order to suppress the short term negatives and ensure that these potential issues do not translate into long term unemployment or other potential negatives. 
Throughout history, the United States has experienced a few major shifts in technology which have changed the way we think about the labor market and the economy as a whole. As a whole, the changes in technology over the last 100 years or so have had divergent effects on the economy. The reason for this is that certain technological advances compliment certain skills while they may negatively affect other skills.18 For example we can examine the industrial revolution and how it positively impacted the productivity and employment opportunity for the unskilled worker with little education, while the computer positively influenced the productivity of those with a higher level of education and skill. We will begin to examine the technological revolutions of the last century in chronological order. 
To begin, the Industrial Revolution os the reason that the 19th century is identified as technological reform that was able to vastly increase the productivity of low skilled laborers. In this era high skilled workers were threatened by the impact of mass production on prices and the efficiency of the assembly line. The disruption and threat of technology started a number of riots and protests, which resulted in the destruction of a few factories in England. However, despite the efforts of these highly skilled workers, the role of technology prevailed and they were not able to sell and compete with the low prices that mass production had to offer the consumer. Although these highly skilled laborers were not as valuable in the market, the standard of living was able to rise due to the number of employment opportunities for the common lower skilled worker. This resulted in an overall good for the economy of England, with an increase employment level, increased productivity per worker, and an increase in total output. The negative effect to the technical change is the disruption of employment for highly skilled laborers in the short run, however many of whom were able to find employment eventually at honest wages. 
The 20th century however was very different in whom the technology effected. In the era of computers and the internet, it was the high skilled laborers who experienced an increase in productivity as a result of technology. It have birth to hundreds of new sectors including e-commerce, digital advertising, computer software/hardware engineers, and many other employment opportunities that required a much more advanced level of skill in that compared to the industrial revolution and its beneficiaries. Predictable, routine labor, were the most vulnerable to replacement by the impacts of computers and technology in this era. Henry Siu argues that the decline in manufacturing in addition to other routine intensive jobs are responsible for the low demand of low skilled labor.21 This in term supports the theory of polarization in the labor markets which has contributed to the inequality of wealth and also supports the theory of skill-biased changes in technology.
