Event description

Description

Professor Pi-Shen Seet, School of Business and Law, Edith Cowan University

Technological innovation is seen as an engine for long-run sustainable economic development and a driver of productivity growth. It is also widely accepted that the disruptive impacts of technology are amplified by their interaction with each other in the so-called Fourth Industrial Revolution (Industry 4.0 or i4.0). Collectively, this has important implications for employment and training, particularly the demand for specific skills and capabilities. The extent to which advanced technologies and business model innovation are more disruptive than changes that have taken place during previous periods of technological and economic change is a subject of considerable contestation. At the centre of this are wildly divergent views about the potential impact of automation and artificial intelligence on occupational and skills demand.
