The human cost of automation

[ August 18, 2017   //   ]

Women’s International Shipping & Trading Association UK (WISTA UK) is to host a conference on the growing concerns in logistics about automation, the Internet of Things and how robotics will have an impact on supply chains and the human work environment. It is part of London International Shipping Week on 11 September at City Hall in London

Among the speakers will be shipping minister John Hayes and a panel of industry experts will be discussing: the current state of the maritime industry and the regulatory steps and changes needed in current platforms, open source platforms and blockchains and how to make the break from silo mentality; legal, security and IMO regulatory issues and what can the industry expect for career progression and gender imbalances.
