Workplace Automation: Opportunities, Ethical Challenges, & Brave New World

On one hand, automation improves the lives of employees by acting as a virtual assistant, there to assist employees with rotary tasks like keying in invoices into their software systems or making PowerPoints. But on the other hand, there are also people who may be left behind or even marginalized by biased automated decision making algorithms.

Hosted by the LAWACTH Young Professionals, this discussion tackles the current state of automation and wrestles with how the future of workplace automation can be ethical and promote societal well-being.

The conversation is led by: - Eve Psalti, Head of Strategic Platforms at Google Cloud - Joanna Robinson, Senior Vice President of Consulting Services at CGI - Rachel Whaley, Technology Lead at LA Tech4Good - Jerome Hsiang (Moderator) - Young Professionals Board Chair
