A5) The Future of Work

Moderator: John Markoff

A range of technologies, including cloud and mobile computing, big data and machine learning, sensors and intelligent manufacturing, and robotics and drones, are transforming societies around the world. Nowhere will the impact be more keenly felt than in the workplace, all over the world. There is an urgent need to address the impact that technology will have on business and the workplace over the next two decades.

This panel will discuss technological, societal and economic aspects of job losses and job creation and the structure of the labor market. It will explore how organizational psychology and organizational behavior will adapt to the changes, and ways in which individual identity and status might be redefined.
