Pawlenty Speaks at February Member Program

Tim_PawlentyJoin us for breakfast at 7:30 a.m. on Friday, February 23, at the DoubleTree by Hilton – Bloomington to hear former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty speak about, “The Future of Work in the Fourth Industrial Revolution,” and how Minnesotans can prepare for changes the next wave of technology will trigger.
Quantum changes in technology are coming at warp speed, posing challenges in every facet of our lives. For this reason, it’s urgent that manufacturers understand the coming changes and develop plans to use those changes.

As the dawn of the “Fourth Industrial Revolution” is upon us, advances are being ushered in by the next generation of technologies, which includes nanotechnology, advanced biotech, next-generation “bigger data” analytics, and, especially, artificial intelligence, or “AI.” These new technologies will increase speed, precision, productivity, leisure, health, and access to nearly everything. Yet, the enormous scale and pace of change will also present big new challenges.
