From self-driving cars to drones, and from robot pets to digital ‘love machines’: robotics and artificial intelligence are transforming the world as we know it and radically. Against the backdrop of a tsunami of technological change, some analysts predict that up to 50% of jobs are likely to go to robots and artificial intelligence during the next two decades.
This Workshop, held at the Hawke Research Institute and sponsored by the Academy of the Social Sciences in Australia, brings together prominent scholars and policy analysts from different disciplinary backgrounds to explore the social implications of robotics and artificial intelligence on work, employment and unemployment. The Workshop aims to strengthen Australia’s research capacity regarding the digital capability and skills of Australian citizens to compete in a global economy shaped by technological automation.
The Workshop will oficially open with Siri, Why am I So Busy? In Conversation with Professor Judy Wajcman on Monday 1 August 2016 at 6.00pm. More information.
