What will technology jobs look like a decade from now?

Individuals will need to upskill to ensure career longevity even as automation takes over certain jobs. Careers in vogue right now may not even exist a decade later.

India, till not so long ago, could not churn out enough software programmers to keep up with demand. Although the demand still exists, it has become more complex and specialised.

Thomas Frey, who advises companies on future trends, says every job will be a technology job going forward. “Emerging technology will provide a lot more opportunities, where every job will have a technology element to it. It will not be about humans versus artificial intelligence, but about working with them.

People, however, need to be taught how to do this and enhance their skills,” the famed futurist and celebrity speaker said.

Futurist to GLI: Millions of new industries will spin from technology

 

Futurist to GLI: Millions of new industries will spin from technology

 In the next decade or two, Thomas Frey predicts we’ll build our houses from 3D printers, shop at mobile convenient stores brought to our doorsteps and wear “smart” clothes that track our movements and guide us through the day.

Frey is a futurist who founded the Colorado-based DaVinci Institute. He’s also a sought-after speaker on the topic of how technological innovation will transform our lives.

He told 1,000 business people and community leaders gathered Monday night for Greater Louisville Inc.’s annual meeting at the Kentucky International Convention Center that while there are dire predictions of massive job losses from advances in artificial intelligence and automation, thousands of new industries will sprout from what’s right on the horizon.

Your next teacher could be a teacherbot

Futurist Thomas Frey: We’re standing on the brink of an A.I. technological revolution that will fundamentally alter the way we live, work, and relate to one another.

Several early use cases for A.I. have begun to open our eyes as to how it will be used, but none quite as strikingly as when Google’s DeepMind was used to play the Atari game – Breakout.

Drones: more than ‘dramatic shots’

15730191218_da601a0b94_z

Last week the comprehensive local regulations for unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), or as more commonly referred to, drones, went into effect.  Drone technology has far-reaching benefits for many industries despite that most of the media coverage has focused on what regulated drone usage will do for “dramatic shots” in film.   Continue reading… “Drones: more than ‘dramatic shots’”

The Black Hat Robots are Coming

Black-Hat-Robot-3

Futurist Thomas Frey:  It’s ironic, this whole effort to work so hard to make working obsolete, or in the case of artificial intelligence, the effort to think so hard to make thinking obsolete.

But then it should really come as no mystery. Machines are far superior to people. Every worker brings their own set of baggage to the workplace, and officials have created countless laws to protect these workers, making the human side of work messier than ever.   Continue reading… “The Black Hat Robots are Coming”

When the “Things” we buy know more about us than we know about them

IoT-Marketing-1

Futurist Thomas Frey:  What if the things you were thinking about buying already knew you were considering a purchase? Much like going on a date, where the person you were dating wanted to look their best for you, what if the product went through a similar process, primping it’s hair and donning an inviting smile to present itself in the best possible light?   Continue reading… “When the “Things” we buy know more about us than we know about them”

3D printing meets graphene

By 3DPRINT.GURU

Futurist Thomas Frey writes: ” In 2004, scientists Andre Geim and Kostya Novoselov from the University of Manchester, used adhesive tape to lift a thin layer of carbon from a block of graphite, and placed it on a silicone wafer.  Graphite is the stuff commonly found in pencil lead.  As simple as this sounds, what these two scientists had created was a 2-dimensional form of carbon known as graphene, and in 2010 they received the Nobel Prize in Physics for this discovery.  But that’s only part of the story.”   Continue reading… “3D printing meets graphene”

Three Laws of Exponential Capabilities – Video

Thomas-Frey-Three-Laws-of-Exponential-Capabilities-1

Futurist Thomas Frey:  We are entering into a world where driverless vehicles will eliminate millions of driving positions; robotic systems will work relentlessly day and night eliminating millions of manufacturing, welding, painting, and assembly positions; and things that seemed impossible to automate in the past will have computers and machines replacing people’s jobs.

At the same time, the amount of time it takes to build ships and skyscrapers, create massive data storage centers for all our growing volumes of information, or produce global wireless networks for all our devices has dropped significantly. But along with each of these drops is a parallel increase in our capabilities and our expectations.   Continue reading… “Three Laws of Exponential Capabilities – Video”

The Massive Opportunity coming for Ground-Based Delivery Drones

Driverless-Delivery-1

Futurist Thomas Frey:  On a recent trip from Montreal to Denver, Air Canada managed to misplace my one piece of luggage.  Since I travel extensively around the world, it’s rare that I have my bags checked, but this time they insisted because of the size of the aircraft. I reluctantly agreed, and they proceeded to lose it somewhere between Montreal and my connecting flight in Toronto.   Continue reading… “The Massive Opportunity coming for Ground-Based Delivery Drones”

Living the Life of Bubble People and Unlocking the Next Phase of Human Existence

Bubble-People-2

Futurist Thomas Frey:  Having been born and raised on a small rural farm in South Dakota, I grew up with a very narrow perspective of the rest of the world. With only two TV channels and three radio stations to pick from, our news options were very limited.  As a teenager, watching the nightly newscasts on television, I was thoroughly amazed at all of the things happening around the world, and yet none of them were happening near me.  I truly felt like I was living in a bubble, far away from all the excitement.   Continue reading… “Living the Life of Bubble People and Unlocking the Next Phase of Human Existence”
