The Future of Work is an INET webinar series that brings together diverse voices to discuss the impact of technology on the economy and society. We host prominent thinkers, policy-makers, and scholars from different backgrounds and countries to present and debate their views.
As technology continues to disrupt industries globally, the nature and future of work will be impacted by decisions and policies being made today. What are the social costs and benefits that technology will bear on economies already transformed by globalization and what are the implications to labor markets and social welfare? Can we get ahead of the next transformational revolution?
In this first episode, we explore how advancements in automation and artificial intelligence are quickly reaching tipping points, yet our policies, institutions and mindsets are woefully outdated. What will work look like in the future, and how do we secure a future that works for all?
To Be Discussed
- Which digital trends were already underway pre-COVID and to what extent were they impacting the overall economy?
- How has the pandemic vastly accelerated many digital trends and ushered in new ones?
- How can policymakers prepare for the future and ensure one that works for all of us?
