Technological Unemployment Conference

London May 12 2016

Overview

Innovations in the digital age have led to the complete reimagining and revitalisation of all sectors of the economy, fundamentally transforming the way we live and work. However, another trend is accelerating: the potential impact of technological unemployment, as rapid digitisation results in widespread job loss. While global productivity has increased, real wages and growth in low and middle-skilled jobs have stagnated as digitisation has taken over the role of many repetitive physical and cognitive tasks.

From artificial intelligence to 3-D printing, to driverless cars, it is predicted that many thousands of jobs around the global economy will be lost to digitisation.

The Digital Mindfulness Technological Unemployment Summit will gather leading consultants, economists and decision-makers to discuss what these shifts mean for businesses, and workers around the world and how to respond to major changes in the employment landscape.
