About this event

Preparing the Workforce of the Future

Friday, October 7th | 3:00-5:00pm Eastern (Hybrid)

Advancing technology offers both challenges and opportunities for our labor markets. What new jobs is technology creating, and how can we safeguard future job quality? Can workforce training programs help in bridging the skills gap? How can we harness artificial intelligence to improve learning outcomes?

Join us on Friday, October 7th in person or over Zoom for a keynote address by David Autor, MIT Ford Professor of Economics and co-chair of the MIT Task Force on the Work of the Future, giving cutting-edge insights into these questions. Professor Autor will then join an expert panel with Avi Goldfarb, Rotman Chair in Artificial Intelligence and Healthcare at the University of Toronto; Sameena Shah, PhD, Managing Director at J.P. Morgan Artificial Intelligence Research; and Majd Sakr, Professor at the Carnegie Mellon School of Computer Science. Anna Salomons, Professor of Economics at Utrecht University, will moderate.

For those attending in person:

Doors open 2:45pm. We encourage you to arrive on-time and stay for the duration of the event to reduce disruptions.

Reception and hors d'oeuvres to follow for registered guests (5:00-6:00pm).
