Please join us for this public event on "Will Robots Take Care of Grandma?" In the coming years, developments in artificial intelligence, computerization, and automation are likely to impact most jobs. Join us to hear Professor Jerry Jacobs, Sarita Gupta, and Morgan Higgins discuss how AI and computerization may change jobs in elder care and how public policy can improve the quality of care jobs. This even is part of the Institute for Women's Policy Research's Women & The Future of Work lecture series, supported by the JPMorgan Chase Foundation.
