Village Capital and Autodesk Foundation are teaming up on a forum to showcase and support early-stage startups that are using AI, automation, or robotics to create new jobs in emerging industries, fill gaps in the current workforce, and retrain or upskill workers whose jobs will be automated, freeing them up to focus on higher level tasks. The companies will benefit from peer learning, access to cutting-edge technologies, and executive level mentorship.
The growth of artificial intelligence (AI), automation, and robotics has disrupted the labor market and is changing the way we work. While one result of automating tasks previously done by people is that some jobs will disappear, increasing levels of automation can also be harnessed to benefit more people, create new jobs in emerging industries, and upskill the workforce to provide job stability.
