About the Conference

 

The concept of 'Society 4.0' is being understood as the societal implications of living with, adapting to, and securing well-being in the digital economy. The digital economy, characterized by convergence of a cluster of technologies- Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Virtual Reality, Advanced Robotics, Augmented Reality, Cloud Computing and the Internet of Things etc. have changed the way we work and do business. Production processes, business models, employment conditions, service delivery mechanisms etc. are being reconfigured; thus forcing businesses, organizations and societies to transform in order to adapt to the fast changing scenario. These disruptions are changing the way we work, study and do business along with how we live in the society. The anxiety about the future of work and jobs is not new but with 4th Industrial Revolution, the speed with which change is taking place is unprecedented. It is expected that in near future, many jobs and skills will become redundant while many will be created new. Some of the pertinent questions to which answers are being sought include -Do we work along with machines? or Do Machines replace us? As a society and global community, we need to find answers to the above questions, while also being responsible for solving problems like poverty and attainment of Sustainable Development Goals – especially Goal 8 of 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda. Emerging economies like India are particularly concerned with the aspects like being able to provide 'decent work' to the young population while also not being left out in the race of adoption of Industry 4.0. The changing technological landscape in various arenas makes skill development/enhancement and labor demands unpredictable and variable. Also, the future requires the youngsters to be equipped with 'Skills of the Future'– which poses a challenge for the academia. The World Economic Forum in its report titled “The Future of Jobs -2018” has pointed out the top 10 skills like- creativity, complex problem solving, critical thinking, people management etc. that would be critical to survive in the future work environment. The role of educational institutions is paramount in this regard. It is essential that a collaborative approach is adopted between academic institutions, industry and government agencies to take on the skilling challenge. This Conference is aimed to provide a platform for the deliberations on the above issues like employment trends in future with special reference to emerging economies, the challenge of skill development/enhancement the youth, need for collaboration between academic, industry, government and regulatory bodies that are responsible for quality assurance and enhancement. The Conference will bring together eminent academicians, corporate executives, researchers, technocrats and experts from all strata of technologies for exploring and discussing the disruptions in business environment; particularly in the nature of work with respect to disruptions being caused by Industry4.0 and also currently keeping in mind post COVID-19 scenario.
