Description

Amidst the great debate over whether AI will replace human jobs, there has been less discussion of how it will transform corporate cultures. AI will demand a fundamental paradigm shift because it will forever revolutionise the relationship between humans and machines. Ever-more sophisticated robots will become informed, sentient collaborators. Reliance upon machines will also transform the skills that organisations seek to engender in human workers. Certainly, AI leadership is quickly becoming a necessary investment regardless of industry and organisations looking to attract AI talent are finding expertise scarce and the competition from big tech companies fierce. The good news is that improved techniques for reskilling existing workers to support digital transformation efforts are now beginning to yield dividends. In particular, reinforcing a culture of life-long learning and development, the concept of reskilling and promoting digital badges for certified skills for employees is growing in popularity. This essential session will explore the impact of AI upon the workforce and provide insight into how organisations can successfully create an AI talent pipeline.
