ABOUT OUR PANEL
We are racing towards a technologically-enhanced future. Internet-enabled technologies continue to disrupt markets and industries at a breathtaking clip. Corporations are increasingly seeing exponential increases in productivity from Internet-enabled automation and the Internet of Things. That disruption is pushing the American workforce to a place where it needs to be more and more technologically adroit. With artificial intelligence, autonomous cars, virtual reality, 3D/advanced manufacturing, and robotics, the skills required of the American labor market bears little resemblance to what was needed just a generation ago.
Those trends will only continue and the Internet connects everyone and everything. Jobs are literally being transformed. Fortunately, the strength of America has always been its workers and their ability to adapt to challenges and innovation. While one might meet this impending shift with trepidation, we believe it presents an amazing opportunity for America to lead the world into the economic future.
We invite you join our panel of experts at the 13th Annual State of the Net Internet Policy Conference on January 23, 2017 at our panel, “The Future of Work: Capturing The American Dream In An Internet-Enabled Economy,” for a closer look at this crucial issue.
More panelists may be added.
