The Future of Work: Robots, AI, and Automation

August 1, 2018 12:00 pm @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Automation has been a driving force in the global economy for decades now, but the rapidity with which new artificial intelligence technology is progressing is almost mind-boggling. The question for workers is no longer “will my job still exist?” but “will my industry still exist?” Billions of lives will be affected in the coming years but few people have any answers.

CMC welcomes renowned political scientist, author, and Vice President and Director of Governance Studies at the Brookings Institute, Darrell M. West, to discuss his latest book, The Future of Work: Robots, AI, and Automation. Joining him will be David Harrison, Ph.D., President of Columbus State Community College.

Sponsored by: Accenture, Regionomics, Steiner Public Relations, and Improving

Regular Entree: Chicken cacciatore served with tomato gravy and rigatoni. Served with a garden salad.
