Upcoming Events

Impact Jobs is the title of the latest event to be hosted by Impact NYC. We'll tackle all sides of workplace automation together on April, 24, 2018. Join our panel of artificial intelligence, robotics and other automation experts for a lively discussion at We Work Bryant Park, 54 W. 40th St. at 7:00pm.

The fault lines between the future of work are emerging. Artificial intelligence, robotics, and automation predict wealth, productivity, and new skillsets for humans unlike what we've seen in the past centuries of civilization and possibly more quickly then we've ever imagined. These new innovations will change our jobs and our incomes. Simultaneously they'll create painful dislocations if we aren't careful.

History shows us it's impossible and somewhat foolish to try and stop progress and tremendous changes in productivity. At the same time, it's important to visualize and prepare for how these changes will affect different parts of society.

Join us and the world's best futurists, scientists, inventors, coders, and community leaders for a discussion on the future of work and how each of us and the communities we lead can get ahead of the coming change and not be left behind by it.
