FUTURE VISIONS Summary: AI AND THE MENTAL SKILLS NEEDED OF THE FUTURE WORKFORCE

 

At the end of last year THECUBE hosted Virgin Future’s live event. It was a follow up to their successful podcast series that covered the future of work. Each episode is anchored by a futurists or entrepreneur and then it is supported by a series of academics and experts. It makes for well researched and well informed perspective of what the future of work will look like.

The live event brought together narrator of the series Natalie Campbell with top futurists Tracey Follows and Ben Hammersley. The discussion centred around how automation will affect job creation and society.
Our three key takeaways were:
  1. Most companies are still living in the past and are not equipped to understand the complexities we are facing right now let alone the future.
  2. The future shouldn’t be seen as singular, there are many futures, each one being shaped by the actions that we take on a daily basis.
  3. We have a responsibility to include all races, socio-economic backgrounds, and cultures in conversations about the future.
