Robots Will Take our Jobs... But We'll Be Ok

Friday 11:40am - 12:10pm, IT Professionals NZ (CCL Room 2)

Thee fourth industrial revolution is bringing about a robotic revolution.

RPA, Chatbots, AI, and Intelligent Automation are all coming, and the media would have us believe that they're going to disrupt our way of working.

Except they won't.

To understand why we only need to look at the impact on work since the start of the industrial revolution.

During this session, Anthony will tell a story that began 300 years ago and illustrates why we'll still be working, even if the jobs won't be the same.

We'll be alright, really.
