5:35 PM Developing Employees of the Future: Focusing on Building Human Skills in the Face of AI

Artificial intelligence (AI) relies on algorithms which churn through data using a structure loosely based on the human brain, and calculate functions too complex for humans to write and it is developing at a rapid pace. Studies have indicated that 400-800 million jobs well be lost to automation by 2030. That’s only eleven years away. Yet while advancements in AI technology continue, so too does our research and understanding of the human skills and organizational learning systems which will be required to facilitate the future of work. 
These human skills of collaboration, critical problem-solving, creativity, communication, character, and global citizenship are an organization’s talent currency and a key requirement to future-proof your business.  Join this engaging discussion that will provide insight into some of the questions that deserve a deeper look:
  • How can organization leaders prepare their business for AI disruption?
  • What does training for human skills look like?
  • What do top performers look like in the wake of an AI takeover?
