Track: The Future is Now
Wednesday, Dec. 6, 10:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.
This session will focus on using cognitive technologies to help citizens find jobs, retrain themselves, and improve wages. We will also discuss how employers can participate in attracting talented workforce AND how workforce development agencies can use advanced analytics to inform policies and work with employers and training providers. This session will present solutions using advanced artificial intelligence for multiple stakeholders: a) Citizens - they will provide their resumes, skill maps and their desires. In return they will get a means to have a job match, find newer jobs, have the ability to retrain themselves, and improve wages b) Employers - provide job opening listings and up-coming placements. c) Community colleges and re-training institutes (trade schools, apprenticeships, etc.) - provide curriculum based on economic development agendas d) 3rd party listing sites - LinkedIn, jobs posting websites (will be used for lookups) e) Workforce Development Agency - provide analytics for policy making in economic development; provide transparency reporting In this session, you'll learn:
1. How cognitive technologies can help advance workforce development
2. How cognitive technologies can strengthen the ties between stakeholders and lead to better outcomes
3. How this example can be extended to other program areas across government.
