Businesses and workers clinging to the remnants of this now mythical workplace will find that grip getting weaker. The keynote will describe the forces of automation that will reshape the employee and customer experience including capture, text analytics, RPA, and chatbots. Examples from the recent book “Invisible Robots” will demonstrate how advancing automation poses threats and incredible opportunities for the human race.
