Covid-19 has speeded up the fourth industrial revolution and been a catalyst for more human interaction with technology. These relationships are becoming a reality in the workplace and a driver for productivity and engagement.
But as the country looks to rebuild the economy in the wake of the pandemic can automation fill the productivity gap and which sectors will gain value from investing and deploying automation? These are just two of the questions which a panel of experts will look to answer in the latest webinar in PACE of Change series by TheBusinessDesk.com and Squire Patton Boggs on Tuesday 13 October.
The panel features Furqan Alamgir, Northern Asian Powerlist winner and CEO of smart city operator Connexin which recently secured £80 million to support its expansion and growth; Paul Hallett, co-founder of Vet_AI, an R&D company that was recently recognised as one of the most disruptive in the UK; and Elizabeth Clark the co-founder and CEO of tech company Dream Agility who’s visual AI and machine learning was born out of a desire to achieve results that were beyond the capabilities of humans.
They will condor the opportunities and threats for business and workplaces, alongside Barry Singleton, chief relationship officer at behavioural AI specialists Scaled Insights which is currently developing solutions for some of the worlds’ largest corporations, and Matthew Kirk, international affairs advisor, Squire Patton Boggs.
The session will also look at what this new way of working means for compliance and regulation and what will be required to underpin growth and protect reputation, as well as what ethical issues automation could raise and answer audience questions.
