Digital Workforce Summit
Morning Plenary
9am – 10:30am

Human meets AI: Arrival of the Digital Workforce

Speakers: Chetan Dube, IPsoft CEO and Edwin Van Bommel, IPsoft Chief Cognitive Officer

This is a pivotal moment in our evolution. Machines are no longer a basic tool to accelerate completion of our chores. Instead, they are the faithful companion that can transform our world. But in order to become an effective part of our workforce, machines must behave as humans. In order to raise customer experiences to a new level, machines must understand us. In order to scale new heights of economic growth, machines must be able to work alongside humans seamlessly.

As IPsoft introduces Amelia 3.0, guests are invited to see how close we have come to fulfilling Alan Turing’s vision of creating a machine that can think.

Beyond the science, there is a global transformation that will be triggered by the introduction of a digital workforce. The results of this change are already being felt and will accelerate as those able to master AI increase their lead on competitors.

Future employment: Strategies for working alongside digital colleagues and managing a digital workforce
