The World Technology Network, a community of the world's most innovative individuals and organizations in science, technology, and related fields, is launching the first World Summit on Technological Unemployment on September 29, 2015, at the Time Life Conference Center in New York City.

The World Summit on Technological Unemployment is the first high-level forum and workshop for thought leaders across all disciplines and domains designed to begin the critical task of confronting the vast challenges ahead. The goal of the Summit is to create a proactive partnership of the brightest minds in academia, government policy, industry, and the media that will construct a framework to define, measure, and ultimately craft solutions to the jobless future that increasingly threatens our global workforce. Thought leaders in academia, government policy, labor, journalism and industry are urged to participate in this seminal event. Our distinguished roster thus far includes:

Robert Reich, former U.S. Secretary of Labor

Joseph Stiglitz, Nobel Prize-winning economist

Larry Summers, President Emeritus of Harvard University and former Secretary of the Treasury (via live video)

Lauren Paer, Economist and writer
