THE JOBS OF 2040

We are all too often told that the majority of our jobs will be automated by the year 2030 – up to 50% of all jobs in fact – by technologies including Artificial Intelligence (AI), Robotics, Robotic Process Automation (RPA), and many others. And, as exponential technologies become increasingly sophisticated and advanced not only are we continuing to see manual work automated in new ways but we are also seeing more cognitive work, such as coding, cyber security, data science, equities trading, and many others also being automated with increasing voracity and speed – speeds which thanks to the negative news networks are having an increasingly serious impact on people’s mental health and outlook on life.

While there is a reason to worry, especially if your employer doesn’t have HR and training programs that help you move between different jobs and career tracks, not all is lost – after all technology has always automated jobs, but it’s also created many more, and this is what we looked into for the article.
