Automation City: Where Robots Meet the Road

The Fourth Industrial Revolution is underway. Strong federal leadership from Washington D.C. and Silicon Valley is largely M.I.A. So, local Philly leaders rolled up their hoodie and suit jacket sleeves to assess the impacts of AI and automation on our economy and residents. We will share what Philadelphia City and Tech leaders are doing now to capture opportunities and prepare for challenges. Hint: Not everyone will be a coder! But, what careers and skills will be in high demand? Is re-training a large segment of the workforce actually viable? Who is most at risk and how do we know? Join our panel as they offer information, strategies and tactical ideas to answer these questions.
