Synopsis

Sarah Burnett FBCS will be speaking about her first book “The Autonomous Enterprise – Powered by AI”, that was published by BCS in February 2022 to wide acclaim.

In the book, Sarah argues that we are on a path to increasingly autonomous enterprises. These have most of their core repetitive transactional processes and basic decision-making automated, consequently, turning the traditional knowledge-worker work model on its head.

During her talk, she will present some of the key concepts from the book, including how AI powers innovation, the future of work, new roles and the opportunities that there will be for women in tech.
