Rise of the Robots: How will automation effect the Third Sector

Briken, K. (Speaker)

Activity: Talk or presentation typesInvited talk

Description

Our world is changing. Artificial Intelligence (AI), automation, and new technologies are already impacting our organisations, our jobs, and our lives. But what does the future hold?

Will new technology enable the third sector to provide better services, support and campaigns? Can automation reduce inequalities and help build a better, greener society? And could a robot take your job?

Join SCVO’s Policy Team as we discuss all this and more with the ever-insightful Tom Cheesewright, Applied Futurist (https://bookofthefuture.co.uk/). Hear from the thought-provoking automation researcher Dr Kendra Briken (University of Strathclyde); and from Rhodri Davies, a fascinating thinker on third sector futures (CAF’s think tank Giving Thought). All chaired by SCVO’s own digital expert, David McNeill.

Get your questions ready as we see just what the future will hold. Expect to have your mind blown!
