The Dark Side of Automation: NY Cab Driver Suicides, Striking Hospitality Workers, and the Growing Fear that We Are Not Prepared for Job Disruption to Service Industries (a special think tank) ONLY THOSE WHO PRERIGSTER HERE WILL BE ADMITTED: https://tech2025.com/events/the-dark-side-of-automation-think-tank/ Ticket price: $10 (including food and beverages) See full event description at link above. Guest speaker(s) TBA. The Urgency of Automation "My advice to everyone: Get a platform while you still can. If you don’t control an app, run an e-commerce store, have your own media business or at least manage a Twitch stream, you’re screwed. (Please follow me on Twitter. My future livelihood may depend on it.)” – Eric Newcomer (A Tough Week for Tech Workers, Bloomberg) The future is bright.

According to research published by experts around the world, we have every reason to believe that AI and automation technologies will ultimately benefit society and create unimaginable opportunities for us to reinvent how we live, work and entertain ourselves (not to mention improve the quality of our health and extend our lives).

But... at what cost? JOIN US for this special think tank session where we will explore the impact of automation on service industries from the perspective of all stakeholders (tech companies, legislators, workers, consumers). We will review and analyze three case studies in particular: (1) NYC taxi cab drivers and ride hailing apps (Uber, Lyft, etc.), (2) unions and striking hospitality workers in Las Vegas (Marriott's backlash from concierges on installing Amazon Alexa devices), and (3) fast food workers (McDonald's $6 billion "Experience the Future" automation of almost 1,000 of its locations, replacing cashiers with self-serve Kiosks and the employee backlash). If we have time, we will also touch on bus drivers in Ohio threatening to strike over proposed driverless buses. Per our usual think tank format, you will participate in an interactive, problem-solving session with our guest speakers and offer your anonymous feedback which will be documented in a short research survey and published after the event. Ultimately, we hope everyone walks away with ideas and an impetus to participate in finding solutions to the daunting problems of automating the world.
