The first edition of AI@Work conference will take place on the 5th and 6th March 2020, fostering an international and multi-stakeholder character by bringing diverse audiences together, from academics and business leaders to policy makers and journalists.
Reshaping Work is a non-profit initiative headquartered in Amsterdam that took off in 2016 in order to bring different stakeholders together to jointly discuss the future of work and find ways to shape it. Reshaping Work events discuss the most prominent issues arising in the future of work such as artificial intelligence, the platform economy, and the impact of digital innovations more generally.
An audience of 150 people is expected to attend, coming from leading universities around the globe, policy sector (e.g. European Commission, Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs, Dutch Police Department), incumbent companies (e.g. IBM, Microsoft, Unilever, PwC), and startups/scale ups (e.g. Cognisses, Seedlink).
