Will I have to compete against a robot for my next job? What does the future workforce look like for our children?

Join Professor Anton van den Hengel of the University of Adelaide’s Australian Institute for Machine Learning and a guest panel on November 11 for an insight into how the future of work will look in this free Future Thinkers session, subtitled “The Terminator, and other fictitious risks to future employment”.

“Much of the fear about the impact of AI on future of employment is driven by a fundamental misunderstanding of what the technology can do now, and what it is likely to be able to do in the next 20 years,” said Professor van den Hengel, who is the Founding Director of the AIML.

“The scenario where the Terminator not only comes into existence, but also wants to work in a fish and chip shop is fictional at best, and predictions made on this basis are inevitably flawed. The true impact of artificial intelligence on the workforce is likely to be far more complex, and lasting.”
