In today’s economic landscape, no business model, company, or industry is immune to disruption. Every industry and organization needs to transform… or perish. At O’Reilly’s Next:Economy summit, the geeks met the suits to explore the future of work in an era of sweeping technology-driven transformation. This complete video compilation puts you at the center of every presentation.
You’ll hear from key executives of companies driving the transformation; economists, journalists and policymakers studying it; and people on the front lines of the revolution: workers taking on new jobs in new kinds of businesses, along with inventors, investors, and entrepreneurs who are changing the world with their products and services.
You’ll also hear from a broad spectrum of businesses whose industries are now undergoing transformation. Everyone’s asking WTF? (“What's the future?”), with questions that include:
- Which technologies will help existing businesses deliver experiences that equal or exceed those of new economy companies?
- How can augmented reality be used to "upskill" workers and consumers, creating enormous new sources of productivity?
- How will software agents and applied machine learning transform business workflows, not just consumer experiences?
- What tools and practices make it possible to manage a truly distributed, on-demand workforce?
- What kinds of industries—and new opportunities—can best take advantage of the 21st century approach to work?
Pick up these videos and learn how technology is shaping the future of industries, companies, and the nature of work.
