The Future of Work: Human + Machine
Dr Catriona Wallace
AI is now the fastest growing technology sector globally, expanding in investment 12-fold over the next 5 years. AI is expected to replace 1.8M jobs and generate 2.3M jobs in the next 12 months. But whose jobs are these? And how do organisations gear up for having digital employees as well as human employees?
Dr Wallace will discuss the AI driven Future of Work, where machines augment human workers & automate work functions. She explores the ethics of this [what could go wrong?] and presents the skills & capabilities that leaders and organisational designers, operations and HR professionals need to know about the coming of the human+machine era.
