Future Trends

What is driving changes in the job market?

 Emerging technologies, such as robotics, artificial intelligence, machine learning, virtual and augmented reality and cloud computing, are predicted to transform how we live and work over the coming decades. At the same time, as technology evolves, some jobs may be at risk of becoming obsolete. Whilst routine and repetitive jobs are most at risk, it seems those that are the safest career routes are those that involve creativity, managing people, strategy or decision-making – things that humans are good at, and qualities that are difficult to replicate with a machine.
