Save the Date: AI and the Work of the Future Congress 2020

The MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL), MIT Work of the Future (WOTF), MIT Initiative on the Digital Economy (IDE) present the MIT AI & the Work of the Future Congress.

The AI age is here, transforming work and the skills required for humans to thrive. Join us as we gather leading academics, business leaders, entrepreneurs, education and labor leaders, and policy makersto explore the impact and future trends of technological disruption, rethink the nature of work, and chart a course for catalyzing innovation for inclusion and economic opportunity for all.

Join MIT on November 18 to explore, rethink, and chart a course for the work of the future.

The remarkable progression of technological innovation is ushering in a new era of unprecedented health, convenience, and prosperity. But the machines imbued with human and superhuman capabilities also bring a flood of collective uncertainty and anxiety about the impact on work and economies. How can we create a future of work that complements and augments human potential while contributing to shared economic prosperity?

To help us understand and meet this grand challenge, three of MIT’s most innovative, future-focused initiatives have joined forces to present the MIT AI & the Work of the Future Congress. This year’s Congress will convene the leaders and visionaries on the front line that are:

Rigorously measuring technological impact on enterprises, governments, and societies
Generating solutions for organizations and policymakers that are working today
Crafting strategies and guidelines for the future

MIT believes the challenge of building an equitable and prosperous future of work is an urgent imperative. The question we should be asking ourselves at this historic moment isn’t “what is technology going to do to our economy and society,” but rather “what will we do with technology?” Audience participation and break out sessions will be available.

Don’t miss the opportunity to meet the leaders reinventing the work of the future and to engage in this important conversation.

Registration information will be available soon. Members of the MIT community can reach out to alliances@csail.mit.edu for ticket information.
