Keynote: Humanity Is The Killer App: How The Robots & AIs Will Humanize Us

Bombarded by articles of job-killing robots and AIs going rogue, Automation’s real story escapes our view: but these technologies won’t rob humans of their value—on the contrary, they’ll give humanity the tools to create unprecedented levels of value.

Where mobile apps demand our attention, intelligent bots will act on our behalf. AIs will flip reactive “sick care” into predictive health care. Robots will enable the elderly to live independently, the disabled to move about freely, and doctors to never face borders again: they’ll simply perform surgeries remotely.

And the “CoBots” will give executives what has eluded them most—more time to focus on the innovations that matter.

Even this era’s most critical of success factors won’t be technological: it, too, will be uniquely human. A Reskilling Revolution—unrivaled in size, scope, and scale—is just around the corner. Join us for a lively discussion of how the Robots will liberate us, AIs will revolutionize us . . . and Automation will humanize us.
