Tuesday Aug 28 18:30 to 21:00

Automation is fast taking over work tasks and disrupting different professions.

The latest prediction is that 800 million jobs will be lost to automation by 2030. 50% of work tasks can be automated using the currently existing technology. We already see robots and AI taking roles of teachers, therapists, lawyers, doctors, drivers and even catwalk models.

Some experts believe that the development of the emotion recognition AI, machine learning, advanced robotics make it only the matter of time till technology will excel in skills and abilities that were considered to be strictly human. In this edition, we will talk about our place in the new work ecosystem. Are there jobs a smart technology can't do? And are the jobs we don't want the smart technology to do?

Our learning initiative Think Future Today is the result of many conversations we have when talking about preparing for the future. Every time we hear different questions, concerns, ethical dilemmas and challenges the advancement of technology and AI brings. We decided to create a space to explore them and develop the future literacy skills. We want to challenge preconceptions, uncover different perspectives and implications of using technology and AI in various areas of our life. We invite you to join the discussion and learning on subjects that are highly relevant for our future. In the end, we want to THINK TODAY what FUTURE we want to be part of tomorrow.

This event is free of charge, but we have a limited capacity, so please register ONLY if you are SURE you will be joining. We close the registration as we reach the maximum capacity.
