HALF OF THE FUTURE JOBS DO NOT EXIST

Dystopian, science fiction films led us to believe that we are supposed to be afraid of the fourth industrial revolution. But, were they right? Are robots really going to leave us jobless? The fact is that up to 45 percent of tasks workers perform can be automated using current technology, and this number increases every day. Still, there is a positive side as well. Progress of technology will create even more opportunities for the workforce. Since, over half of the jobs current middle school students will be doing in the future do not even exist today.

Human brain will continue to outdo machines when it comes to innovating and pushing intellectual and creative boundaries. For that reason, fields of creativity, neuroscience and bioengineering will employ many experts, technicians and engineers. With the creation of the new world, there will be a growing demand for new laws, regulatory agencies and ethic committees. Those are some of the many potential future jobs.

McKinsey Global Institute from Michigan treats that migration on labour market as a positive change. Their research shows that the hardest activities to automate are those involving expertise in decision-making, planning, human interaction, or creative work. Our brains consider that kind of work more challenging and their completion makes us feel meaningful, which will probably lead to increase in general happiness.
