Automation, digital platforms, and other innovations are changing the fundamental nature of work. Understanding these shifts can help policy makers, business leaders, and workers move forward.Many activities that workers carry out today have the potential to be automated. At the same time, job-matching sites such as LinkedIn are changing and expanding the way individuals look for work and companies identify and recruit talent. Independent workers are increasingly choosing to offer their services on digital platforms including Upwork, Uber, and Etsy and, in the process, challenging conventional ideas about how and where work is undertaken. Work as we know it is going out of tradition, giving way to a new and efficient way to get work done while improving productivity and reducing cost.

 The Freelance Economy: Technology, Jobs, And The Future Of Work is an event designed to explore the evolving nature of work and how technology can be utilized to maximize productivity, by reducing cost for the business owners and proving worthy income on the part of skilled individuals.
