Upcoming Alumni Knowledge Webcast: Harnessing Automation for a Future that Works
April 13, 2017
Thursday, April 13: 8:00 – 9:15 a.m. PDT / 11:00 a.m. – 12:15 p.m. EDT / 5:00 p.m. – 6:15 p.m. CEST

McKinsey Global Institute's (MGI) new report, "A Future that Works: Automation, Employment, and Productivity," is part of an ongoing series on the future of work, and examines the global impact of rapid advances in automation technologies including robotics, artificial intelligence (AI), and machine learning.

These technologies have evolved into powerful tools, which now match or outperform humans in a range of work activities, including cognitive ones. The report analyzes how automation will affect different occupations, industries, and countries; the factors that will make automation technologies a reality in the workplace; and their potential impact on business performance, employment, and productivity.

During this session, report authors Michael Chui, MGI Partner (San Francisco), Katy George, Senior Partner (New Jersey), and Mehdi Miremadi, Partner (Chicago) will share findings from the new report, as well as their perspectives on the implications for business leaders, policy makers, and individuals.
