About the Conference


The world is undergoing major changes and disruptive technologies are expected to transform the world - artificial intelligence, analytics, robotics and process automation. The development of automation enabled by these technologies brings a promise of higher productivity, increased efficiencies, safety, and convenience. However, the implementation of these technologies also raise some difficult questions - about the broader impact of automation on jobs, skills, wages and the nature of work itself. To understand and respond to these changes, AMCHAM India is organizing a conference on the Future of Work.
