Artificial intelligence (A.I.), robotics and machine learning are exponentially changing the way we work, with Statistics Canada predicting that automation will impact 30 to 40 percent of jobs in Canada. ATB Financial is currently examining this shift through a focus on the future of work, the workforce and the workplace. Join us for an interactive panel to discover what these changes will look like and how you can prepare yourselves to evolve with them successfully. You’ll learn about the:

  • key capabilities of A.I. and how it differs from robotics;
  • applications emerging from these various industries; and
  • required skills to leverage these new ways of working.

Session Tip: 

You’ve been lied to. There is no such thing as “you can't teach an old dog new tricks.” Neuroscience reveals that you can (re)train your brain. Let’s chat about how.
