Emerging Technologies Areas and Best Practices to Bridging Skills Gap Seminar

Emerging Technologies Areas and Best Practices to Bridging Skills Gap Seminar

The skills needed to tap into new technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), machine learning, robotics, blockchain, etc. are in short supply. The businesses who crack the code of upskilling their employees in the right technology are the ones who are most likely to thrive in an evolving landscape of talent and work.

Industry leaders and learning & development experts say that bridging this skills gap is a primary challenge that they are facing today. In this timely seminar, we are going to discuss what is the likely impact of Emerging Technologies on today’s workforce, how do we bridge skills gap and get ready for future workforce?
