The webinar - Future of Work: Human Replacement or Collaboration? - will consider issues such as the degree to which machines will replace the human workforce and the professions that are under maximum threat. The webinar will include Frost & Sullivan Visionary Innovation experts along with industry leaders from Cisco and Pod Group and discuss the evolution of work across three distinct areas:
- The future place of work
- Tomorrow’s labor force
- Workplace innovation and applications
"The ultimate question on the future of robotics is whether humanity and its workforce will be replaced by machines, and, if so, which areas are under maximum threat," says Jillian Walker, Senior Consultant, Visionary Innovation Group at the firm. "With the rise in AI and automation, the range of professional service applications for robots is vast and spans across all industries."
"Organizations of the future will need to plan well in advance to match the pace and extent of automation in order to stay competitive and relevant," says Walker. "This requires significant insight into changing trends leading to the future workspace, workplace technology and labor workforce of tomorrow."
The webinar, says the firm, aims to offer the following benefits for attendees:
- Identify the role of humans in an increasingly automated workplace
- Learn how to effectively approach the technological disruption headed for the industry
- Discover what the future workplace, workforce and their associated technologies look like
The webinar will air live on October 15 at 11 AM EDT and be available on demand thereafter.
