Skills for Today, Jobs for Tomorrow

As the rapid growth in technology continues, concerns about job displacement and predictions of looming job losses is widespread.

Some analysts have even gone so far as to suggest that almost half of all jobs in the US and other advanced countries are at risk of being substituted by computers and algorithms within the next ten to twenty years.

The AIIA “Skills for Today, Jobs for Tomorrow” forum will bring together renowned futurist Shara Evans, ICT and broader industry leaders to discuss the future of work in Australia.

Coupled with the public release of AIIA’s thought leadership piece on the Jobs for Tomorrow, the forum will consider:

  • The implications of new digital technologies such as AI, robotics, automation etc on the nature of jobs and employment in the future;
  • Risks such as job polarisation;
  • New look future jobs and employment opportunities – including across different industry sectors; and
  • The implications for skills development, reskilling and lifelong learning.

In addition to Shara, a panel of experts from key industries such as Banking, Government and Education will discuss the impact on their sectors, and how they are developing skills within their organisations today, to prepare for the jobs of tomorrow.
