FutureFest Forward: AI and The Future of Work - 17 May 2018 17:30

In the run-up to FutureFest, this series will be exploring Artificial Intelligence and how we can start to see, feel and grapple with what it could mean for our daily lives.

This event was specifically designed for policymakers, educators, frontline innovators, civil society groups, technologists and funders interested in hearing about future visions of the workplace.

It explored changes in the world of work linked to advanced machine learning and AI. We are engaging deeper in the mixed reality of both the virtual and the physical workplace, with the future of creative collaboration through remote connected teams - robots, avatars and humans working together - and with future cognitive cooperations. How will AI effect the above and influence the ongoing moves towards the sharing economy, collective and agile working, zero hours contracts, universal income, home working and the gig economy?

Please find below speaker videos.

These sessions are curated by Ghislaine Boddington, Creative Director of body>data>space - an interactive design collective based in East London with a focus on body responsive technologies, virtual physical networks, interactive interfaces, user centred experiences and future collaborative share spaces. Ghislaine is a Reader in Digital Immersion at University of Greenwich and a co-curator of FutureFest.
