Working Well With AI

In this podcast series, we discuss how AI is changing the world of work. AI has long been predicted to reshape our working lives, and it has developed in leaps and bounds over the past decade. As we emerge from a global pandemic we’re rethinking how we work, what sort of work we value, and what we need for the future.

Listen to cutting edge conversations from experts who ask how AI is changing the world.

In this episode, host Professor Rose Luckin (UCL Knowledge Lab, UCL IOE) explores “Future Skills” with Dr Louise Hickman (University of Cambridge) and Jordan Cummins from (CBI).

We examine the roles of government, industry and academia in addressing this issue and how learning with and about AI can be done in an inclusive way. We also discuss what it means to build an AI-enabled workforce and try to identify what potentials are yet to be unlocked.
