What is this Workforce Crisis?

There is growing evidence to show that in the next ten to fifteen years, jobs, as we know them, will undergo a dynamic change. 

The fourth industrial revolution jumpstarted by robotics and the innovations in artificial intelligence, and workforce automation has pushed the world into a global manufacturing arms-race. 

These incredible technological discoveries while revolutionizing businesses, also have the potential to create a massive displacement of jobs.

How Does Being Innovative Futureproof Alabama?

An essential piece of Futureproofing Alabama is to continue to foster the growing innovation culture that is sprouting up across the state.  The efforts of groups like The Innovation Depot (Birmingham), TechBirmingham (Birmingham), RocketHatch (Huntsville), and the Alabama Launchpad are bringing the startups and the innovators to the state. 

Innovation of this type will be required if Alabama wants to have a leg up on the changes that will be driving the economy of the future.
