Speaking Session:

Humans in the Future of Work

Thursday, June 20 @ 11:30 AM – 11:50 A Stage B

Today’s workplace is experiencing dramatic shifts, from contingent labor to rapid job obsolescence to widening skills gaps. How can we stay relevant and learn in a world where AI is becoming more prominent? To understand the future of work, this session will examine the history of education and workplace training. We’ll explore the role of early machines in K-12 classrooms, AI in the history of higher education and the most important piece of it all — the human element.

William Zhou is the CEO of Chalk, an education technology company that uses data to help K-12 schools. He launched his first internet business in 2010, which he sold at the age 18 during his first year of computer science at the University of Waterloo. William founded Chalk to transform education with data-driven solutions.
