There is concern among students and parents that job losses through robotics, artificial intelligence and technology is creating uncertainty about future employment.
There's no question that technology will impact on future jobs and employment. Some jobs will disappear and new ones will be created. In fact there is evidence to suggest that there will be a net gain of jobs with 82% of companies saying they are likely to hire more people in the future. We can substantiate this by the fact that the top three countries with the highest number of robots and automation - Japan, South Korea and Germany - have the lowest unemployment.
The technology revolution is here!
While most jobs will be impacted by technology it doesn't mean they will disappear. They won't go ... they'll change. The choice is not Man or Machine but rather Man plus Machine. New technologies will make us smarter, more productive and faster at achieving outcomes. We are in a 'technology revolution'.
