This article from the World Economic Forum explores how the Fourth Industrial Revolution is set to change the world of work. We thought this was a great introduction to the challenges ahead as digital blurs the lines between our traditional spaces. Read on to find out which skills we will need, and which we will replace.
Five years from now, over one-third of skills (35%) that are considered important in today’s workforce will have changed.
By 2020, the Fourth Industrial Revolution will have brought us advanced robotics and autonomous transport, artificial intelligence and machine learning, advanced materials, biotechnology and genomics.
These developments will transform the way we live, and the way we work. Some jobs will disappear, others will grow and jobs that don’t even exist today will become commonplace. What is certain is that the future workforce will need to align its skillset to keep pace.
