2017-06-13 David Dodge CIFAR Lecture: Robotics, AI, and the Future of Work
Fairmont Chateau Laurier, Drawing Room

Join CIFAR Senior Fellow Daron Acemoglu as he delivers the Second Annual David Dodge CIFAR Lecture in Ottawa on June 13.

Along with the backlash against globalization and the outsourcing of jobs, concern is also growing about the effect that robotics and artificial intelligence will have on the labour force in advanced industrial nations. World-renowned economist Acemoglu, author of the best-selling book Why Nations Fail, will discuss how technology is changing the face of work and the composition of labour markets. Drawing on decades of data, Acemoglu explores the effects of widespread automation on manufacturing jobs, the changes we can expect from artificial intelligence technologies, and what responses to these changes might look like. This timely discussion will provide valuable insights for current and future leaders across government, civil society, and the private sector.  

The David Dodge CIFAR Lecture Series was established in 2015 to honour former Board Chair David Dodge and his extraordinary contributions to Canada.

Time: 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM
1 Rideau Street
Ottawa, ON K1N 8S7
