Developing your Organization's Skills for the Digital Future
Are AI and robots eating jobs? Yes--some jobs more than others. But even as automation replaces some workers, it will enhance the roles of others. Companies will need people who can work closely with technology, as well as those who can do what computers cannot. How can CIOs develop a workforce that will thrive in the digital age? Which skills will be valued and which ones will be replaced? Does college still matter? Will on-demand workers replace full-time employees? Join our eclectic panel--experts in AI and jobs, Human Resources, alternative skill development, and digital leadership--as they describe what the coming changes in skills, jobs, and careers mean for CIOs and their companies.
George Westerman, MIT Initiative on the Digital Economy will moderate the panel, including:

The Perfect CIO: Empowering Business Partners and Serving Customers
With technology and customer requirements changing at such a fast pace, CIOs have to respond, innovate, and make evidence-based decisions, not only within their own organization but increasingly for the whole company. More than ever, this requires extensive collaboration with customers and among different functions within the company. How do CIOs empower their business partners across the company? We'll discuss the top priorities of high performing CIOs and the business outcomes for which they should be increasingly held accountable.
Leslie Owens, MIT Sloan Center for Information Systems Research will moderate the panel, including:
