Did you know that half of the needs of our current workforce will no longer be necessary in about 50 years? That philosophy will likely be as demanded as computer sciences and recruitment processes led by algorithms? This is the future of work as explained to DFS by four globally renowned experts.

1. Steve Cadigan: “The technological transformation is creating a unique dynamic where the company can’t really explicitly plan for what skills are going to be needed.”

Steve Cadigan is a renowned expert when it comes to people, talent and culture. As former VP Talent at LinkedIn and founder and CEO of Cadigan Talent Ventures LLC, a Silicon Valley-based talent strategies advisory firm, Steve helps organisations worldwide develop winning talent solutions. We spoke to him about the future of work. Watch the full interview here.

2. Ansgar Koene: “Algorithms do not make moral judgements. Humans decide how much to prioritise false-positives over false-negatives.”

Ansgar Koene holds an MSc in Electrical Engineering and a PhD in Computational Neuroscience. He is currently Global AI Ethics and Regulatory leader at EY and Senior Research Fellow at the Horizon Institute for Digital Economy Research (University of Nottingham), where he is co-Investigator on the UnBias project, which raises awareness around algorithmic bias and explores regulation.
