The Impact of Automation on Jobs and Small Businesses in New York City
jeu. 27 septembre à 00:00
Overview (attendees must RSVP (free) at: http://bit.ly/automatenyc ) "It has taken decades for New York State’s economy to rebound from the effects of offshoring and globalization. From Buffalo and Rochester to Binghamton and Riverhead, the state has shed hundreds of thousands of jobs—particularly in manufacturing and related industrial sectors—and upstate job growth has been comparatively slow. Yet in the years ahead, New York State will need to contend with an even more powerful and fast-moving economic force: automation." -- Matt A.V. Chaban (Center for an Urban Future) By now, we've all read the media headlines and heard the alarms being sounded from experts, business leaders and politicians: the robots are coming and, as a result, millions of jobs may be deleted from the economy in a disturbingly short time span -- including white collar jobs like accountants, investment bankers and lawyers which have traditionally been safe from workforce volatility. The numbers vary greatly from one research report to another, but they all project the number of jobs that will be replaced by automation in the next decade to be in millions to tens of millions. Research by McKinsey estimates that 73 million U.S. jobs could be lost to automation by the year 2030. Having said that, research also indicates that millions of new jobs (and entire new job categories) will be created as a result of automation (exactly what these new jobs will be remains a mystery). JOIN US for this special Mission AI discussion and live research analysis where we will explore how automation will impact the workforce and small businesses in New York in the near future, and how the local and federal governments should help businesses and citizens prepare for this seismic shift. The overarching question of the evening is: Where do we go from here and how do we get there? According to compelling new research by The Center for an Urban Future (State of Work: The Coming Impact of Automation on New York), New York workers could see $185 billion in wages taken by machines, robots and automation in the next few years: "Our study finds that New York State is less susceptible to automation than the nation as a whole. But it also reveals that more than 1.2 million jobs in the state, about 12 percent of the state’s workforce, could be largely automated using technology that exists today." The report offers a detailed assessment of the "automation potential of every occupation statewide and in each of New York’s ten regions." Reviewing the above research by Center for an Uban Future and other research (including Burning Glass research on the job market), we'll explore how New York City specifically (as opposed to other parts of the state) will be reshaped by automation and where the new opportunities for job growth and entrepreneurship will arise. In addition to the interactive panel and think tank session with our expert guest speakers, we will be gathering live research at this event (asking for your feedback on various aspects of this topic to share publicly). Lite bites and beverages included. SPEAKERS Samara Karasyk is the Chief of Staff and Executive Vice President at the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce.
