Skill Shift: Future-Proofing the Workforce
In its agreement with film and television companies, the Writers Guild of America included not only pay increases, but also protections around artificial intelligence. Screenwriters are not the only ones fretting about their jobs as AI takes the world by storm: the stormy sounds are keeping many other types of workers, and policymakers foremost, awake at night. And AI is just one of the disruptive technologies being deployed. So, how to future-proof the workforce, in the face of such technological disruption? This is the key issue the Pillars closing conference will delve into in Brussels on 14 November 2023. The conference is part of the EU Horizon 2020 Pillars – Pathways to Inclusive Labor Markets project.
