Event Details

As artificial intelligence (AI) continues to evolve, its integration into the workforce becomes increasingly prominent.

The EICN has conducted a global survey of its members to uncover the dynamic ways in which AI is poised to transform and enhance our global work environments.

From automation to augmentation, we are interested in understanding how AI technologies are reshaping roles, processes, and skills across diverse industries.

We are also keen to understand how attitudes to AI are developing among senior leadership, management and front line staff.

We will share exclusively the results of our survey, and hear from regional business leaders and employment specialists, to help us envision a future in which humans and AI collaborate to unlock new levels of productivity and innovation.

Please note that this event is limited to senior-level executives and per invitation only. If you are not an existing member of The Economist Intelligence Corporate Network, but would like to learn how you can attend our events, please contact us.
