During last 25 years, a silent technological revolution, affecting life and livelihood of large number of people all over the world has taken place. High end technologies like Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Robotics, 3D printing, Blockchain, Cryptography etc. have emerged. These have disrupted the employment scenario and created economic inequalities. There are growing fears of mass technological unemployment in near future. The consequences of these technological developments have to be dealt with effectively to save lives.
Massive efforts are needed from HR professionals, industrialists, politicians and governments to retrain manpower and to provide psychological support to the existing manpower. Keeping the current job scenario in mind, the light at the end of the tunnel may be the skill development at junior level jobs.
To deal with these upcoming disruptive changes, we humbly invite you to enthusiastically participate and develop international network in the aforementioned conference and contribute towards meeting the new challenges regarding sustainable employment and livelihood.
