Sunday@4: The Future of Work
October 29, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Imagine this: by the time the current generation of infants reaches adulthood, they will have done so in a world where nearly half of today’s jobs may be automated. The progress of technology will also create new jobs and demand new skills.
The Future of Work session explored the potential impacts on society of two separate developments driving the automation and elimination of jobs: Robotics and Artificial Intelligence (AI). Our guest, Jeff Christopherson from Inuktun, a global robotics company based in Nanaimo, discussed the use of robotics in mining, oil and gas and other industries to be discussed throughout this year’s series.
After the session, Brian Sperling was kind enough to put together a reading/viewing list for this session.
