Accelerating automation in the New Normal

Offices and working practices are evolutionary, from the first industrial revolution of 18th century to the creation of emails in 70s and the subsequent mass adoption in the 90s. Now in the wake of Covid-19 another change is afoot, the adoption of automation.

The fourth industrial revolution, the ongoing automation of traditional manufacturing and industrial practisers, has been talked about for years, but the current global pandemic has accelerated its rate, acting as a catalyst for more human interaction with technology.

But as Human-AI relationships that were once the stuff of science fiction become reality what benefits can they bring to businesses? Will they deliver the much hoped for productivity and engagement increases or simply threaten traditional jobs, well the latest webinar from and Squire Patton Boggs as part of their PACE of Change series looks to examine this.

The session which features an expert panel will look at what real benefits automation can bring, explore why now is the opportune moment for business to harness technology and what economic impact this move could could have across the North.
