What is the future of jobs and which of them have a future? – Challenges and opportunities in the digital revolution
Artificial intelligence has reached new frontiers with machines now surpassing humans in activities that require creativity and intuition. As a result, half of today’s jobs could potentially be automated in the future. On the one hand some researchers argue there won’t be enough new positions created to make up for the lost ones; on the other, machines could be absorbing the most routine aspects of our jobs, freeing us up to concentrate on more creative and value-added activities.
The next Career Women’s Forum WAVE Conference will discuss the risks and opportunities of the digital revolution. There will be presentations and a moderated panel discussion by leaders and business experts on the Digital Revolution.
The following questions will be addressed:
How can we prepare for this faster-than-ever paced technological revolution?
Which jobs may stay and which new ones will be created?
What could future factories look like?
How will we work in the future?
What will the impact be on the individual?
