On April 19 we welcomed Martin Ford, bestselling author of Rise of the Robots for a thought-provoking debate with our clients in La Bellone, Brussels.
Discussions focused on what impact Intelligence Automation (smart software, machine learning, Artificial Intelligence, robotics…) will have on work, the economy and society as we enter the Fourth Industrial Revolution, aka Industry 4.0.
According to Martin, the challenges are great:
“Machines are not only replacing human muscles in routine jobs but also human brainpower. In the future, Artificial Intelligence will be a utility like electricity. Smart software will be the most disruptive, impacting more and more jobs, including services. New industries are emerging, but will they be enough to bridge the gap? It’s time for society to debate the impact of this evolution so that amazing technology innovations benefit everyone.”
Thank you to all our clients for making this evening a great success and for being part of this fascinating and ongoing debate!
