47% of jobs are challenged by digital disruption.
Some are safe. Some are threatened.
Work out how to fit into the changing work environment of the 21st century.
The future of work and jobs is a huge issue across the world. Predictions are that 47% of “old world” jobs will disappear. And there won’t be enough “new world” jobs to replace them.
Everybody needs to plan for this new reality. And a good place to start is by understanding why this change is happening to the work environment.
Robotics, machine learning, artificial intelligence, holochain, 3D printing, augmented reality, virtual reality and BIM amongst many other technologies are changing the nature of work. These are the new challenges.
Some technologies bring opportunities and some threats, but the overall result is net job loss. So students, parents, teachers and employers need to start thinking about study and work options differently. These are the new opportunities.
