Finding a Job in an Automated Future
Sunday, March 13

Austin Convention Center
531 E 4th St
Machines and software are getting smarter all the time. Any job that can be automated soon will be. Should you be nervous?
Join two of the top CEOs in artificial intelligence and a VC that has backed them for candid advice on honing your human advantage in an increasingly automated world. They’ll discuss the skills computers (probably) won’t perfect any time soon, the new opportunities automation creates, and the training you’ll need to work with smart machines rather than compete against them.
Whether you’re fresh out of college or an experienced professional watching your industry evolve, get ready to face an employment future that will look nothing like the past.
