Commentators are arguing how many jobs will be lost to digitization. Yet, there's one way in which humans cannot fully be replaced: empathy and personalized interactions. So how will customer engagement change as a result of artificial intelligence? Will robots be able to emulate human empathy? And how can we design a path such that humans and robots work to complement each other?

We'll explore all of these questions and more in this session with Leesa Soulodre, Chief Innovation Officer at Inspirit IoT.

🔵[[TAKEAWAYS]]
-an understanding of the jobs that are susceptible to automation
