While the effects of layoffs and furloughs caused by the COVID pandemic will certainly shape the foreseeable future, the long-term health prognosis for the American workforce will largely be determined by a metamorphic revolution in communications, data, and automation.
The pandemic helped spark a mass shift to digital tools and communication that will accelerate the deployment and embrace of new tech platforms powered by big data, IoT, 5G, and AI. This transition comes packed with opportunities and risks for the American workforce that will reward those fluent in these new modalities and will require others to upskill to align with the new opportunities that this future world will generate.
On April 28, The Hill will convene top-tier technologists, business leaders, economists, political leaders, and policy practitioners to discuss the future of jobs and strengthening the American workforce.
Additional speakers to be announced.
