The nature of work is changing

The entire point of work is to make a dent and not to simply warm the pews of the Church of life. The nature of work is changing; most jobs will be automated and service sector work will be replaced by bots and AI tools. The future lies in work which is meaningful and cannot be replicated by information technology and data which is not found on the Internet, rather insights which are there in the community through ethnographic work. Interview probes that make sense can’t be replaced by software. Impact lies in creative disruption and methods that are constantly innovated upon. The nature of learning has to change in order to avoid being jobless in 5 years time. Move to professions which are purely value driven by innovation and are people centered.

The fourth industrial revolution is changing everything through artificial intelligence. We better be shaping social infrastructure accordingly else unrest is only two skipped meals away.
