Automation and artificial intelligence (AI) are set to boost productivity and address societal challenges in areas from health to climate change.

By 2037, AI will create more than seven million new UK jobs in healthcare, science and education, more than making up for the jobs lost in manufacturing and other sectors through automation, according to a report from PWC. 

Our talk aims to explore how technologies will transform the nature of work and the workplace itself.

  • Ian Funnell, Managing Director, ABB UK
  • Jonathan Patterson, Managing Director, DWF Ventures
  • Cristina Inversi, Lecturer in Employment Law, Alliance MBS
