A CONFERENCE ON HUMANS, MACHINES AND THE FUTURE OF WORK December 5-6, 2016, Rice University, Houston, TX, USA.



The conference will focus on issues created by the impact of information technology on labor markets over the next 25 years, addressing questions such as:



*         What advances in artificial intelligence, robotics and automation are expected over the next 25 years?

*         What will be the impact of these advances on job creation, job destruction and wages in the labor market?

*         What skills are required for the job market of the future?

*         Can education prepare workers for that job market?

*         What educational changes are needed?

*         What economic and social policies are required to integrate people who are left out of future labor markets?
