SXSW 2020

The Augmented Workforce: AI, AR, 5G Change Everything


The robots are coming for our jobs! Or are they? While news stories focus on the doomsday scenarios, technology actually points toward a future where workers are augmented, where creativity leads the way and where tech is a complementary instead of only substitutive. How are we rethinking our sense of self in this era and how are we preparing new generations for the future of work? How will these technologies impact different industries and change the reality of business as we know it? It’s time to rethink who we are as workers and what our business strategy is in the age of emerging technology.
