TOM BENTLEY SPEAKS: The education services are not predicted to be automated on a large scale. The wider impact of automation so far, as it has been for decades, is to restructure the kinds of jobs that are available and to change the relative terms of doing different kinds of jobs, which has a huge impact on the distribution of life chances and opportunities.

VISUAL: A graph shows that accommodation, food services, manufacturing, transport and warehousing are the most likely industries to be automated.
TOM BENTLEY SPEAKS: These technologies are also changing, beginning to change the way we actually structure ourselves as an institution. So the technologies of administration, the technologies of verification are hugely important.
VISUAL: A slide shows that workers in low-skill level jobs are almost 9 times more likely to have their jobs automated in the next 20 years.
VISUAL: A slide shows that MIT BlockCerts will allow users to be able to import their certificates and easily share.
VISUAL: Three slides appear in a row. The first reads “Challenges…”
“How will RMIT create a digital backbone that supports personalisation and responsiveness in everything we do?”
“How do we navigate the implications of AI and automation for learning, working and organising?”
“How should we develop the technology standards and infrastructure for future education?”
VISUAL: An infographic appears with RMIT’s three pillars on it. Life Changing Experiences, Passion with Purpose and Shaping the World.
VISUAL: The RMIT logo appears.
