Description

#DMZSession: Robot Revolution

We’re coming to an age where cars drive themselves and drones deliver our holiday gifts. But will automation -the replacement of workers by technology and computerization- take over our jobs? Or will they create a new market for specialized jobs? You might not need to look far to find an answer.

A recent report conducted by the Brookfield Institute found that nearly 42 per cent of the Canadian labour force is at a high risk of being affected by automation in the future.

Join the DMZ at our next #DMZSession for a panel discussion on the rise of automation. Panelists will discuss the growing use of automation in the workplace, the implications it will have on the job market and how it’s becoming embedded into our day-to-day lives. They’ll provide a range of perspectives on the emerging developments in the field of automation and robotics, how businesses should use artificial intelligence (AI) and what it means for future startups.

-Sean Mullin, executive director of Brookfield Institute
-Krista Jones, head of work and learning at MaRS Discovery District
-Kavaskar Thiya, founder and managing director of Nikola Labs

This discussion will be moderated by Dr. Stephanie Walsh Matthews, a program director at Ryerson University who is leading a research consortium on robotics and autism spectrum disorder.

The panel will be followed by a demo fair to test products that are part of four major tech trends in 2017. Attendees will have the chance to try new products from Toronto-based startups hitting the market in the new year.
