Think Future Today #4: Strictly Human

Featured image

Automation is fast taking over work tasks and disrupting different professions. 800 million jobs will be automated by 2030. 50% of work tasks can be automated using the currently existing technology. We already see robots and AI taking roles of teachers, therapists, lawyers, doctors, drivers and even catwalk models.

Some experts believe that the development of the emotion recognition AI, machine learning, advanced robotics make it only a matter of time till technology will excel in skills and abilities that were considered to be strictly human.Are there jobs a smart technology can't do? And are the jobs we don't want the smart technology to do?

Our THINK FUTURE TODAY series are born from many conversations we have when talking about the development of skills of the future. Each and every time we hear different questions, concerns, ethical dilemma’s and challenges the advancement of technology and AI brings. We decided to create a space to talk about it with each other. Not expert focussed, but reflection and dialogue driven. In the end, we want to THINK TODAY what FUTURE we want to be part of tomorrow.

This meetup is free of charge, but we have a limited capacity, so please register ONLY if you are SURE you will be joining. We will use English for the introduction, but you will be able to speak both English or Dutch during the discussions.
