Emerging technologies and evolving jobs
The world Economic Forum has published its report "The Future of Jobs," making predictions on how new technologies will impact the workforce and skill needs. According to the report, "As technological breakthroughs rapidly shift the frontier between the work tasks performed by humans and those performed by machines and algorithms, global labor markets are undergoing major transformations. These transformations, if managed wisely, could lead to a new age of good work, good jobs and improved quality of life for all, but if managed poorly, pose the risk of widening skills gaps, greater inequality and broader polarization." Here are the top 12 trends the report says will impact data-related jobs over the next five years.
