The European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training (Cedefop) produced a series of practical guides on the topic of understanding technological change and skill needs. This guide is the second of this series, covering the skills intelligence methods of big data analytics and artificial intelligence methodologies. The report emphasizes the limitations of conventional methods like surveys and forecasting and highlights the potential of big data and AI tools for real-time insights. It then provides examples of automated skills anticipation methods and how these can be applied to answer specific skills-related questions. The guide aims to assist analysts and policy-makers in navigating through the uncertainties of emerging trends in skills.
