Talk Description:
 Jobs, and nature of work as we know it, are  changing rapidly.   As companies become more "digital," employees need to be empowered to become more innovative.  In many industries and countries, the most in-demand occupations, specialties, and skills did not exist 10 or even five years ago, and the pace of change is set to accelerate. This will have a tremendous impact on how the workforce of the future acquires and applies new skills, and how companies organize work to stay nimble and competitive. In this talk, Yassi Moghaddam, ISSIP Executive Director talks about how ISSIP members are working together to map out skills required for the future of work in which AI would enhance and augment, not replace, human capabilities.

Yassi Moghaddam is the Executive Director of International Society of Service Innovation Professionals (ISSIP), www.issip.org, a non-profit organization that has partnered with industry leaders and many universities to promote Service Innovation (people-centred technology-enabled value co-creation) across the globe.  In this role, she has been spearheading industry-academia collaboration to help close the skills gap between education and employment for the emerging innovative jobs of the 21st century. Yassi is also Managing Director of Stradanet, a boutique Silicon Valley consulting firm where she has been driving innovation initiatives working with leading companies including Cisco, VMware, Wells Fargo, Applied Materials, and a number of startups. She  holds an MBA from Columbia University, an MSc in Electrical Engineering (EE) from Georgia Tech, and a BSc in EE from University of Oklahoma.

Speaker: Yassi Moghaddam,  ISSIP

More on an upcoming ISSIP conference on this topic.

Also on this topic I suggest reading Byron Reese's new book:  The Fourth Age: Smart Robots, Conscious Computers and the Future of Humanity.    Which I am in the midst of reading.  Good section on jobs and AI.
