We are glad to inform you that this year IILM Graduate School of Management is organizing HR conference on 28th of October, 2017. The topic is “HR & Fourth Industrial Revolution: Dealing with people in the age of Artificial Intelligence”.

Conference Overview

A dynamic era of change in the world of work has introduced Fourth Industrial Revolution, which will be shaped by a range of new technologies and innovations like virtual reality, the internet of things, smart robots and artificial intelligence. Advent of machines powered by artificial intelligence has already strongly influenced the work. Three scenarios could emerge in future – machines will replace humans; enhance and make people better at what they are doing; or invent entirely new jobs. As entire industries adjust, most occupations are undergoing a fundamental transformation. While some jobs are threatened by redundancy and others grow rapidly, existing jobs are also going through a change in the skill sets required to do them. There is a fear that things like more machines, automation and AI could lead to layoffs, and companies will restructure. These new technologies will impact all disciplines and industries, and even challenge us about what it means to be human. The current technological revolution need not become a race between humans and machines but rather an opportunity for work where people recognize their full potential. While man knows the art of the job, machines know the science of the job. Man will have a better judgment and dealing with visual cues, emotion, ethics and social context. If jobs will be taken over by robots, that will be directed by the workers. A stronger interaction between HR, manager, and employees is required to ensure high levels of productivity and creativity – keeping everyone engaged and connected. HRs need to increase their employee’s technological capabilities, train and empower.
