"Shaping the FUTURE OF WORK in Industry"

The progressive digitalization has dramatic effects on the Industry, its workforce and on the corporate culture. Today, the Industry and manufacturing is poised to transform work at an unprecedented pace through exponential technologies such as artificial intelligence, advanced robotics and cognitive automation, advanced analytics and the Internet of Things. All this results in new challenges for employees and companies on a daily basis. We will discuss far-reaching changes in the industrial transformation and its impact on the corporate culture hidden under the term "transformation". The focus is still on the people.

We discuss with leading industry experts how increasing automation and the fast growing technology landscape will transform our world of work today and in the future.
