Upcoming OECD Forum Explores What We Can Expect from an Automated Future

The 2019 Organisation for Economic Co-Operation and Development (OECD) Forum is fast approaching, scheduled to take place in Paris on May 20-21, 2019. Now in its 20th year, the OECD Forum is using this milestone to not only reflect on how society has rapidly changed in the past 20 years, but to look ahead and pinpoint emerging trends that will set the precedent for the next 20.

Third Space founder, Dr. Ernest Wilson will be a featured speaker for the OECD’s Digitalisation series, which will explore key topics related to a digital, artificial intelligence-driven society. While an AI future is inevitable, Dr. Wilson highlights key gaps in the workforce related to intrinsically-human soft skills that will not only shape the future of a traditional workforce, but are also necessary for shaping the future of machine-programming and automation.

A key element of this? The Center for Third Space Thinking’s communication-driven TST model, that revolves around five essential attributes: Adaptability, Cultural Competency, Empathy, Intellectual Curiosity and 360-degree thinking.
