Breakout Session: Artificial Intelligence and the Future of Work

A consensus of reliable scientific literature, in a review of already proven (albeit not yet broadly deployed) technologies, forecasts that by 2025 as many as half of the tasks performed by white-collar professionals and most managers and executives will be more efficiently performed by artificially intelligent or similarly capable expert systems.  This trend may upend the traditional conceptions of work, alter the basic calculus around procuring and retaining skilled employees, and challenge even the largest companies to redefine how human capital is best utilized within the corporate environment. The panel will feature a mix of cutting-edge technologists and corporate strategists to discuss how companies might need to address these confounding and rapidly evolving issues.
