Safe jobs in 21st century are among three bottlenecks to automation: creativity, social intelligence, and the ability to interact with complex objects and environments
The digital age is set to cause more upheaval than previous technological revolutions because change is happening faster than ever before and is fundamentally altering the way we live and work. Technology is now enabling not just the automation of repetitive but also cognitive tasks involving subtle and non-routine judgment. Through robotics, big data, the digitisation of industries and the Internet of Things the nature of occupations and whole industries is changing and also the dynamics of economic growth.
We should equip workers to engage with developing technologies, so they’re able to benefit from them, and focus on those bottlenecks still faced by automation. Giving people those skills could help them find jobs that aren’t readily replaceable by technology, but also help them to develop new technologies and push innovation further.
