The Future of the workforce: Drivers and Challenges

ACS & ISACA Young Professionals joint event

Event Start: Tue 10 Jul 05:00 PM AEST
Event Finish: Tue 10 Jul 07:00 PM AEST


Registration End Date: Tue 10 Jul 02:00 PM

The media has been awash with incredible claims about the future of work, job insecurity and unequal distribution of income including the most fanciful claim that the world of human work is fast disappearing.<br><br>The pessimists seem to dominate discussion in Australia on the effects of computers, artificial intelligence etc. and yet there is very little evidence to support this view. In this presentation it will be argued that there is no evidence that new technology, such as computerization, is decreasing the amount of paid work done in Australia. It is likely that new technologies are changing the types of jobs being done by workers but the pace of change in the composition of employment and in job security is no quicker today than in the other periods of technological change. While new technologies, including robots, computers and artificial intelligence may be having some impact on the Australian workplace, most claims about their impact are vastly overstated. Nevertheless, There are implications for our educational and labour market institutions. <br><br><b>*Note:</b> This event has limited places. If you are a member of more than one member body, please do not duplicate your registration and only register with one of the organisations.  We look forward to seeing you there..<br><br>@ACSCanberra#ACSEvents #ACSYIT #YoungProfessional #ProNetworking #FunTimes #Skills<br><br><b>Event agenda</b><br>5pm - 5.30pm – Guests’ arrival and networking<br>5.30 – 5.35pm – Welcoming and introduction<br>5.35pm - 6.35pm – Main presentation &amp; Q&amp;A session<br>6.35pm - 7.30pm – Opportunity to networking with members of other organisations
