Presented by SGInnovate and EmTech Asia. In Support Of Innovators Under 35 Asia Pacific

AI and automation are transforming businesses across all sectors, from manufacturing to healthcare, climate change and more. As machines increasingly complement human labour in the workplace, we will all need to adjust to reap the benefits.

According to recent reports, there will be a seismic shift as half of the activities (not jobs) carried out by workers could be automated. Workers will need to learn to work alongside machines. As a result, some occupations will decline, others will grow, and many more will change.

For society to reap the full benefits of AI - while leaving no worker behind - it is essential for governments and AI businesses to be aware of the challenges ahead and to be able to address them in a timely fashion.

Join us for an evening of intelligent conversation with AI business leaders as we discuss:

Automation is coming: Blue collar, white collar, purple collar… No human task is genuinely safe from automation over a long enough period.
3D: dirty, dull, dangerous jobs – When AI and automation are direly needed.

Our responsibility: AI businesses should not only bring technological innovations but new business models too - which enfranchise workers who transfer their skills to machines.

Practical steps: AI businesses can help workers monetise their skills, even when algorithms do the work.

At the end of the panel, we will be unveiling MIT Technology Review’s annual list of Innovators Under 35 from the Asia-Pacific region. Do not miss this opportunity to meet young founders and researchers who are working on the next wave of profound tech breakthroughs.
