Abstract

With the development of artificial intelligence technology and the promotion and application of industrial robots, it has had a profound impact on economic behavior and reform, as well as on the job market. As an important part of the labor market, the impact of AI and industrial robots on the employment situation of college students is also a topic worth studying. This paper investigates the impact that AI and industrial robots will have on the overall employment number as well as the employment number of college students through the data of the employment market in 30 Chinese provinces from 2015 to 2019 with the OLS and fixed effect model. The empirical research results prove that the development of AI technology and the promotion and application of industrial robots will have the impact of the promotion effect on the overall employment number as well as the employment number of college students.
