MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL) and Initiative on the Digital Economy (IDE) are joining forces to host the 3rd annual AI and the Future of Work Congress.

Driven by an artificial intelligence revolution and new talent models, work is rapidly changing. Daily, jobs and the skills needed to be successful in the workplace are being reinvented.

With headlines like, “Will Robots and AI Take Your Job” and  “Automation Is the Greatest Threat to the American Worker, Not Outsourcing”, the future of work is uncertain and daunting for many across the globe.

Join academics, corporate leaders and public policy makers as we get to the truth behind these headlines and explore the opportunities and challenges ahead for organizations and their employees.

MIT takes as a guiding premise that addressing the social and human implications of technology should not be an afterthought. Don’t miss this opportunity to engage in this important conversation.
