DCPA2107 - Keynote: Building the Future of Work


Dec 7, 2021 8:00am ‐ Dec 7, 2021 8:50am


Standard: $49.00

Description

MIT economist David Autor dives in to how machines and humans will work side-by-side. His research goes beyond theory, it identifies evolutionary trends in artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) advancements to pinpoint the augmentation that is taking place. Do new technologies automate tasks and eliminate jobs – or do they augment human skills and create new work? The answer is YES! It is the and, not or.

Autor breaks down how accounting & finance professionals will move up the value chain, identifies the new work that machines create, and explores how we have been automating ourselves for 200+ years. This session will clearly define what makes us more productive and which systems to capitalize on.

Learning Objectives:
  • Recognize what new work will look like in the future
  • Identify how humans and machines will work together
  • Determine best uses of capital as it relates to AI investments

Keynote(s):

  • David Autor, Ford Professor of Economics and Associate Head of the MIT Department of Economics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
