9:10 AM INTERNATIONAL KEYNOTE PRESENTATION: Robots and Humans: Implications of Intelligent Automation and a Redesigned Workforce

We have all heard it: Robots are coming for our jobs. Unfortunately, the hyperbole around the impact of automation creates confusion and fear. Cutting through the hype is critical if we are to explore the real possibilities automation brings to change the way we work and deliver services. The thesis of this presentation is that the future is happening now and the workforce is being reshaped by technology, even in the public sector services space. We need to consider the implications, however, in order to maximise the power of technology to augment the power of humans. Drawing on real-time experience, some of the topics covered by this presentation are:

  • A review of the current impact of emerging automation techniques on the workforce
  • The movement toward a human-centered economy and workforce
  • Cutting through the hype: levels of automation and their impact on various industries
  • Thinking though the change process to prepare for the impact of automation
  • What’s next and what do we need to do now to prepare
