Seminar Description

The Covid-19 situation has created a new modus operandi and many of the changes in our work habits are here to stay. More than that, and even before this situation emerged, we had started experiencing some megatrends that would affect the future of work anyway. These megatrends were driven by the forces of globalization, demographics and technology. The combination of these 3 forces will bring about sustainable changes in how us humans experience work and how we integrate with robots. Automation (e.g. AI, IA, RPAs etc.) will result in new job designs where simple, repetitive tasks are taken over by robots and highly intelligent, creative and complex tasks remain with humans. The paradox is that, as technology progresses, we will be experiencing a parallel need for enhanced “human skills”.

The implications of the aforementioned for various industries and professions will be discussed.
