Digital Transformation - is there a Future for Human Skills?


The digital transformation is happening here and now. New technology such as AI, Big Data and machine learning is rapidly changing the conditions of knowledge intensive service sectors, including the fields of Business, Economics and Law. Through the digitalisation service production is spread across the globe. Is outsourcing of attractive complex services a risk? What can technology do better than people today and what can it replace tomorrow? Do we need to make some policy adjustments to encourage – or prevent unwanted – development? What are the trends in the knowledge-intensive service sector?

This seminar will focus on ways that technology changes the prerequisites of society in terms of impact on the economy, need for policy changes, and the future of the labor market.

Time: November 15 at 14:00 - 15:00
Room: E 45, Handelshögskolan
Fika included!
