Robots aren’t taking our jobs yet.
The entire Internet is buzzing about how AI & robotics are changing the realities of work cross-industry.
Indeed, many corporations are heavily investing in digitization and strive to adopt cutting-edge tech like co-bots, IoT, predictive analytics and all that jazz.
But most of such projects are in early pilot state: tested selectively at a smaller scale than most mainstream media makes us think.
Yes, digital skills (those beyond the basic computer literacy) are growing in-demand. But no, not everyone should panic about losing a job to a robot or an AI algorithm.
In fact, according to a joint Pearson & Nesta study, the following professions in the US will see in increased demand between 2020-2030:
- Preschool, Primary, Secondary and Special Education School Teachers
- Animal Care and Service Workers
- Lawyers, Judges and Related Workers
- Post-secondary Teachers
- Personal Appearance Workers
- Social Scientists and Related Workers
- Counselors, Social Workers and Other Community and Social Service Specialists
- Librarians, Curators and Archivists
- Entertainers and Performers, Sports and Related Workers
- Other Management Occupations
- Media and Communication Workers
Not quite the robo-jobs you’ve expected, eh?
