Advances in AI and automation are significantly changing our economic landscape. New innovations will replace up to 40 percent of current jobs by 2020 (according to PwC).
Regions such as York, PA are embracing these technologies and growing their economies by supplying the solutions for our modern world. Yet York and others are also grappling with the future of their workforce and the training and skills that will be required to take on these new opportunities.
BLUEPRINT York will discuss the transformative technologies in AI and automation while exploring what it means for the future of the workforce, particularly in heartland communities. The group will continue the conversation around what it will take to take advantage of these opportunities and map out a BLUEPRINT for middle America.
This invite-only event brings together large tech companies with economic development agencies, venture capital players, universities, incubators, accelerators, growth start-ups to build connections needed to accelerate prosperity in the heartland.
