A few weeks ago I was explaining to my grandfather what we’re working on for our thesis. His first reaction was: “Because of such automations people lose their job, …”. I had a hard time convincing him this is actually a good thing… he is looking at it a little too short-sighted.
No one can predict what the impact of automation is going to be in the future, but with technology just starting to show it’s potential I think we are awaiting a fascinating future…
In this TED talk Andrew brings us his vision of the future labor-market. In this far-seeing talk, he thinks through what future jobs might look like, and how to educate coming generations to hold them.
Do you think the job you are studying for/performing at the moment will still exist in 2050?
