It’s all too easy to see the future of work in black and white: Some believe that with the lowest unemployment rate in decades, everything is bound to stay the same, while others see intelligent bots obliterating the need for human employees altogether.
All indicators, however, point to something in-between. Seismic change is surely ahead, with the infiltration of artificial intelligence (AI) into all aspects of work, but it’s no time to panic about the role of human employees. While we believe 10% of jobs will wither away in the face of AI, we also see more jobs being created than destroyed. (In fact, we’ve begun to define actual job titles that we see emerging — 42 of them, so far.)
