Elatia Abate
Many of us hold fears that robots and computers will disrupt our professional lives and make many existing lucrative white-collar jobs obsolete. But in fact, the growth and dissemination of artificial intelligence, machine learning, automation, and social robots can actually be your ticket to new career opportunities and the potential for a lifetime of personal and professional fulfillment. In this dynamic one-day workshop, you will preview the landscape of the future and understand where you can fit into the coming opportunities. For instance, if you work in a traditional industry like law, healthcare, or education, robots may help free you from mundane tasks that consume your time, allowing your brain to work on challenges that matter. Going forward, you may find yourself rehearsing a client defense, training to save lives, or crafting field trips to Mars—all in virtual reality. Along the way, we will also study career design, business development, and negotiation to help you thrive in a consistently and rapidly changing work landscape. You will leave this workshop with the mindset, strategy, and tactics you will need in the future when work is no longer just “work” but rather an opportunity for you to develop your talents, seek your passion, and channel your creativity to build the career of your dreams.
