The impact of technology on the future of work and what that means for HR and workforces (321)
Wednesday, 16 August 2017 from 18:30 to 20:30 (BST)
The impact of technology on the future of work and what that means for HR and workforces
David is a frequent and well respected commentator on progressive HR and business issues and, on this occasion, will be discussing his thoughts on the hugely topical and thought provoking issue of automation, technology and ethics.
His talk will cover areas including:
1. The potential impact of automation and machine learning on the workplace
2. Varying scenarios around the potential impact of that on HR and the broader economy
3. The ethics of the connected workplace - quantified self, wearable tech and predicative analytics
4. The consequent challenges for HR as a profession
And above all, how can we ensure that the future of work is human.
