FUTURE WORLD OF WORK: ADVANCING HUMANS

21 June 2018
Futures Stage

The world is at a cross-road. One road leads to AI utopia. Advanced technology is freeing the planet from mundane, repetitive jobs. It’s reinvigorating industries, establishing new ones, and helping us achieve the unimaginable, setting mankind on a course for unbound greatness and prosperity. 

The other is much darker. The needs of corporations and shareholders have totally replaced the needs of people. Unregulated AI use is further widening the gulf between the ultra-rich and the poverty-stricken poor. People feel usurped, replaced and useless, believing their way of life has been decimated by tech that can do things better, faster and smarter than they ever could.

Philip Jennings is an authority on the rights of the global workforce and his singular insight has recently garnered him an appointed to join the ILO Commission on the Future World of Work.

Here, he’ll reveal how today's decision-makers hold the key to a sustainable, empowering future, calling for ethical AI and social justice. Phillip will present a compelling strategy to ensure working men and women retain a vital place in the world, examining the steps we need to take to ensure mankind stays on the right path.
