The words artificial intelligence stir up different reactions in people, depending on the audience. For some, the feelings are largely positive, with anticipation of major societal advancements that will impact all aspects of our lives. For others, the feelings trend negative, with fears that our jobs will become automated and our skill sets deemed irrelevant.

This presentation from Navrina Singh, Director of Business Development for Artificial Intelligence at Microsoft will offer a glimpse into the future of work, how artificial intelligence (AI) products and technology are changing our landscape, and what skills will be needed to be relevant in this new global reality.

Microsoft has built a dedicated research group with over 5,000 individuals focused solely on the company's AI products and technologies, and you will learn the ways in which they are leveraging their expertise to create social benefit and reskill our workforce.
