Event summary

koolth are proud to partner with Open State to present our exciting event 'Future Jobs in a World of Artificial Intelligence' (and automation) as part of the Open State Festival 2017. This event will include a panel of leading figures that will discuss the future employment options in a world in which Artificial Intelligence and automation displaces millions of jobs. The event will be held on the Wednesday 4th October 2017 from 12.00pm to 2.00pm at the Open State Dome, Victoria Square (Southern End), Adelaide, South Australia.

New technologies, automation and especially Artificial Intelligence, is leading to widescale job replacement. Many businesses are looking to employ new technologies to maintain competitive advantage, but few are considering the scale and social impact of job losses. This event will explore employment options (and opportunities) in a world of automation and Artificial Intelligence and the expert panel will discuss how business, governments and society should reframe their thinking around the future of jobs.

We are thrilled to announce the wonderful Jan Owen AM Hon Dlitt from the Foundation for Young Australians (FYA) will be keynote speaker and panel member at this event, discussing the future of work for young Australians.
