Incubator and Accelerator : Creating optimum strategies for workforce reskilling in an AI led workplace

Fri 22nd Nov 2019 - 12:00pm

Chancery Lane

See the future coming and connect with people making it happen to overtake the competition, strengthen capabilities and agility to stay ahead of the Robots and the seismic shifts ahead

We have seen the astonishing pace of technology developments such as AI, AR, VR, voice driven apps, blockchain, genetic analysis, robotics, IOT, big data, quantum computing, 5G and many others which are constantly reshaping businesses and entire industries and how customers buy. This is likely to continue.

Within this landscape, key research highlights in relation to reskilling priorities include:

  • 85% of the jobs that will exist in 2030 haven’t been invented yet
  • Investment in the UK Artificial Intelligence companies is rising, with funding in the first half of 2019 already surpassing 2018’s total. Industrial robots shipped in 2018 reaches record levels of $16.5bn.
  • Many occupations are ‘at risk’ from AI and automation, potentially leading to large-scale job losses – however  there are opportunities to increase the number and quality of jobs (but will it be enough?)
  • More than 120 million workers globally will need retraining in the next three years due to AI impact on jobs. (IBM)
  • 86% of global organisations are changing the way people learn (Deloitte)
  • 54% of employees will require significant reskilling in 3 years and 53% of organisations are increasing the L&D budget by 6% + (Deloitte/WEF)

Rapid reskilling is needed….

Attendance at this leadership event will provide insights on future trends , leadership reskilling dynamics and critical requirements to succeed in this new environment.
