The Impact of Technology on the Future of Employment

Technology has been and continues to grow at an exponential rate. At its core is ‘Moore’s Law’ which forecasts that processors (the computer chips that run personal computers) will double in power every 18-20 months. This has been occurring reliably for the last several decades and is expected to continue well into the 21st century. As computers become more powerful at an increasing rate, what they can do and how they can process ‘work’ makes them formidable competitors for filling jobs. Mike Landau, CEO of SetFocus, a technology school, will discuss how will these changes impact you and what can you do about it at Bernardsville Public Library on Wednesday, January 18 at 7:00 pm.

Mr. Landau has started a number of successful small businesses since 1987, prior to which he was the Director of Strategic Planning at AT&T. SetFocus is a technology school that has selected, trained, and placed over 2,500 IT professionals since 1997. Mr. Landau has an undergraduate degree in Economics and an MBA from New York University.

There is no charge to attend the program, but advance sign-up is requested. Register online at and follow the link under Adult Programs, or call the library at 908-766-0118 to sign up.
