"When the Robots Come to Take our Jobs: 

Preparing the Workforce with the Critical Skills of the Future "


Jessica Tower

Program Summary

With the rise of artificial intelligence, many job tasks are susceptible to automation. While we often think of jobs at risk of automation to be low-skilled, AI threatens to automate job tasks related to finance, computing, and even medicine – skills that are traditionally highly valued in the marketplace.

What skills will be most valued in the marketplace in 10 years? How do we develop these skills in our workforce? We’ll discuss the impact of big data and AI on talent development, and strategies to equip your organization with the critical skills of the future.
