AI and the Future of Work
The growing use of Artificial Intelligence is in the news almost daily. Businesses are looking for strategies to incorporate AI for efficiency and a competitive advantage. The workforce is concerned about the changes AI will bring for jobs and required skill sets.
At MIT, the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL) and Sloan’s Initiative on the Digital Economy (IDE) are joining forces to host a 2-day conference November 1 & 2, 2017 which will bring together thought leaders from academia, business, and public policy for an open dialogue about AI’s impact. The first day will focus on helping industry understand how to navigate the opportunities and challenges of the “AI Revolution”, and the second day will focus on providing valuable insight to individuals in the workforce. Ultimately, the goal for this important event is to make a “call to action” for all of us to make smart decisions on the use of technology, with a focus on the job creation opportunities that these brilliant technologies can bring to our economy.
