Questo articolo analizza gli impatti occupazionali della diffusione delle tecnologie digitali di ultima generazione, con particolare attenzione alle applicazioni riferite ai sistemi Industria 4.0. L’idea che le tecnologie di automazione e le piattaforme digitali sostituiscano il lavoro è tanto intuitiva quanto sbagliata. In realtà, non è la domanda di lavoro a essere carente, quanto la capacità dell’offerta di adattarsi ai cambiamenti tecnologici e affrontare le trasformazioni organizzative e gli squilibri sociali che tali cambiamenti comportano. L’articolo prende innanzitutto in considerazione la letteratura recente che ha indagato il rapporto fra innovazione tecnologica e lavoro, discutendo poi i risultati di una ricerca originale svolta su un esteso campione di imprese venete, volta a misurare gli impatti occupazionali della diffusione delle tecnologie Industria 4.0. I risultati mostrano come le imprese che adottano tali tecnologie esprimono una più alta domanda di lavoro, spiegando il 75% degli incrementi occupazionali avvenuti nel periodo.
