We are at a critical juncture. Automation technologies are transforming work, society and the economy in the UK in ways comparable to the Industrial Revolution. The adoption of technologies associated with automation such as artificial intelligence, algorithmic systems and robotics has accelerated through the COVID-19 pandemic, and the impact of automation is unevenly distributed with a disproportionate impact on demographic groups in lower pay jobs.
The Pissarides Review into the Future of Work and Wellbeing – a collaboration between the Institute for the Future of Work, Imperial College London and Warwick Business School, funded by the Nuffield Foundation – is hosting a full-day conference at the IET London: Savoy Place to explore the latest perspectives from research, policy and practice on how automation technologies are transforming work, society and the economy.
The conference will be open for people to physically attend, alongside being broadcast online with thanks to IET.tv.
