A future with AI; who’s at the wheel?
Automation is sweeping through companies relentlessly, cancelling obsolete jobs, and creating new types of jobs. Industry 4.0 promises factories where resources come in one side and products come out on the other, costing little more than the resources themselves. Now, new AI-tools such as ChatGPT and text-to-image generators even put pressure on white collar jobs in the creative industry. Will Artificial Intelligence create a new wave of job replacement, or will we once again find new jobs that haven't even been invented yet? How can we prepare ourselves and the future generation for such an indistinct future? And what kind of leadership is required for this new reality? Carlo van de Weijer will present the trends and guidelines on how the future of work might look. He will explore what jobs are secure and what jobs are destined to be replaced, how much we should care, how we might prepare, and what these major changes demand of current and future leadership.
