AI and the Future of Work Congress

About the AI and the Future of Work Congress

MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL) and Initiative on the Digital Economy (IDE) are joining forces to host the 2nd annual AI and the Future of Work Congress.

Driven by an artificial intelligence revolution and new talent models, work is rapidly changing. Daily, jobs and the skills needed to be successful in the workplace are being reinvented.

With headlines like, “Will Robots and AI Take Your Job” and  “Automation Is the Greatest Threat to the American Worker, Not Outsourcing”, the future of work is uncertain and daunting for many across the globe.

Join academics, corporate leaders and public policy makers as we get to the the truth behind these headlines and explore the opportunities and challenges ahead for organizations and their employees including:

  • As “thinking machines” become increasingly more capable, “what’s next” for organizations? How will AI impact everything from their overall strategy to structure?
  • Should we be worried about having sufficient jobs available to gainfully employ everyone? Or, as in past disruptions, does AI open up new opportunities for work that we have not fully considered yet?
  • What will the jobs and skills needed to be successful in the future look like?
  • How do we ensure the pathways to future economic opportunity are accessible to all? How can we use technology as a tool to drive greater shared prosperity in the digital economy?

MIT takes as a guiding premise that addressing the social and human implications of technology should not be an afterthought. Don’t miss this opportunity to engage in  this important conversation.
