IT’s about TECH #7: The future of work — digital technologies that will change the way we work

Tuesday 09.04. – Tuesday 09.04.2024, Klybeck-Areal, K-25, Klybeckstrasse 161, 4057 Basel, 4057 Basel, (Tram Nr. 8/ Nr. 1, Haltestelle: Dreirosenbrücke), 5.30 pm

Digital technologies have and have had a strong impact on the way we work. Jobs have vanished, others were reinvented or have arisen. From process automatization, to cloud computing, virtual reality and — of course — artificial intelligence: not only the work place as we know it but also our understanding of work itself will need a profound rethinking. In an ideal world ever more efficiency gains will lead to better (life) quality and offer new opportunities. But will this narrative really play out? What are the fears, what are the hopes?

Find out and discuss with us at our next IT’s about TECH event, taking place on April 9, starting from 17.30 at Klybeck in Basel. Experts and entrepreneurs will share their insights and show case their projects.
