"Anything that is routine or repetitive will be automated"
AI, automation and robots are fundamentally changing the work humans do and the relationship between humans and machine. Business leaders, innovators, scientist, politicians, economists as well as civil society, academia, and other stakeholders, all agree that the world around us is changing – but how?
At Future of Work Malaysia, we ask our leaders, thinkers, innovators, disruptors, what that means for us here.
On the four key panel sessions: Public Policy; Finance and Economics; Education & Human Capital and Technology - questions are posed regarding how we can expect our work life to change as we both compete and complement AI in the near future.
