Here’s an interesting set of facts pulled from this MIT report by Bruce Daisley (don’t you love it when others do the hard work of looking at long reports for you and finding the nuggets?).
- Technology will continue to transform work, about 63 percent of jobs performed in 2018 did not exist in 1940
- Based on current trends Artificial Intelligence won’t replace humans anytime soon – total jobs will go up over the next 20 years
- Worker training/education needs to evolve – for a sign of what’s to come, the Google IT support certificate is the most popular course on Coursera (on the way to half a million students)
