OGC Mind Mesh! AI Era and Web3: New Organizational Forms in the Age of Mass Layoffs

June 28th (Wednesday), 2023 | 19:00-20:00 (JST)

Online Zoom 

It is said that 40% of white-collar jobs will be replaced by the evolution of AI, leading to a significant transformation in our working environment.

These rapid changes have sparked several important questions:

  • Will long-term employment remain secure?
  • What is the meaning of “work” in the AI era?
  • What precisely defines "work" and how will its meaning evolve?
  • What is the significance of compensation and social security within the realm of employment?
  • Can a stable life be established through alternative avenues beyond traditional employment?

In the first part, we will discuss the concept of a life portfolio to make this significant era of change a positive one for us. Presentation by Aki Ueda (OGC member).

In the second part, Mr. Shouhei Ikeda will talk about the challenges and possibilities of diversity and decentralized organizations from the perspective of a labor consultant.

In the third part, we will explore the attractiveness of decentralized autonomous organizations (DAO) and discuss the new forms of organizations in the age of AI. Together with the participants, we will engage in discussions about the changing relationship between companies and individuals and the positions of employers and employees, and consider the possibilities brought about by decentralized organizations.
