How long until we have a robot for PM? Are the predictions about the future of work getting ahead of reality? Labour Conference

Party conference

Location

Premier Inn Albert Dock, East Britannia Building, Liverpool, L3 4AD

Overview

Liam Byrne MP

Artificial intelligence has the potential to revolutionize the way that we live and work. While some predict this could usher in a new wave of hi-tech jobs, others warn of widespread job losses. But what predictions should we trust? 

Will accountants and lawyers be replaced by algorithms, or will new technologies help them work faster and smarter? Will our smartphones replace a trip to the doctor, or simply free them up to spend more time with each of their patients? Are politicians out of a job? What can policymakers do now to prepare for an unpredictable future?

Join researchers and robots to unpick some of the assumptions that underpin predictions about how the world of work might change, and explore what we do – and don’t – know about the impact of AI on work.
