Much like how the ancestors learned how to grow food after spending many years hunting animals to eat, the dawn of a new industrial age is motivating the world to learn the new skills of the future to thrive.
The Fourth Industrial Revolution, also known as the Technological Revolution, focuses on emerging technology such as artificial intelligence (AI), the Internet of Things (IoT), nanotechnology, renewable energy, and many others. What was once far-fetched is becoming the new normal.
These innovations will drive economic and commercial growth but at the expense of other industries. Smart robots and other more stable machines will be utilized to automate some jobs, resulting in about five million jobs being outdated by 2020.
The only way that you can survive the upcoming years is to identify and learn the skills that will matter and grow going forward. The infographic below shows the skills you need for the future, as well as the jobs that would require such skills. You can view the original infographic here.
