Emerging Technology and the Workforce

This event has passed.

From generative AI tools that help summarize documents to virtual reality headsets that train retail workers, emerging technologies are reshaping the workplace and workforce. As technology changes the jobs and industries of the future, policymakers must prepare the workforce to adapt.

Join BPC as we convene experts to discuss technology’s role in our economy and how to empower people to best adapt to these upcoming changes. Topics of conversation will include AI, automation, productivity, upskilling, workforce training, and the role of public policy in creating opportunities to maximize these technologies’ potential benefits while mitigating their potential risks.
