fLTR: MMag. Markus Figl (District Head Vienna Innere Stadt), Jan Berger (Founder and CEO Themis Foresight GmbH), Dr. Agnes Kügler (Austrian Institute of Economic Research, Department of Industrial Economics, Innovation and International Competition), Dr. Martin Kocher (Federal Minister of Labor), Univ.-Prof. Dr. Sabine Köszegi (Chairwoman Austrian Council for Robotics and AI, Professor TU-Vienna), Karl Mahrer (City Councilor and Provincial Party Chairman).

While some fear for their jobs, others are fascinated by the transformation that is currently taking place in our working world. Which jobs will be replaced by artificial intelligence in the future? Will I soon be working with a robot instead of a flesh-and-blood colleague? And what does this transformation mean for our economy and society as a whole?

It is these critical questions and different perspectives that make the topic of the working world of the future seem more controversial than almost any other. And while the opportunities are apparent at first glance, the accompanying challenges are often still opaque in their full breadth.

This makes it all the more important to understand the complexity of Working World 5.0 and to engage in discourse.

This was also the aim of the panel discussion with political analysis held by the City Academy of the People’s Party of Vienna at the end of April. Under the slogan “Working World 5.0 – Between Opportunities and Challenges for Vienna and Europe”, scientists, economic experts, futurologists and politicians used the example of Vienna as a business location to discuss the many aspects of a working world in transition – also representative of other European cities.

Our CEO and founder Jan Berger was represented as an expert in the field of AI and digitalization and discussed the topic of artificial intelligence and the labor market together with Federal Minister of Labor Dr. Martin Kocher and City Councilor Karl Mahrer.

We are looking forward to a continuation and further discussion forums of this kind to allay fears and proactively shape change in our working world.
