Fancy a Job Designing Human Parts or Exploring Space Debris? You’re in Luck!
As we enter Industry 4.0, the debate and fear surrounding which jobs will be taken over by robots has hit fever pitch but do we really need to worry? No, we don’t, according to research from PWC and Microsoft. Far from A.I spelling the doom of humans, smart technology is about to make our jobs even more exciting.
Microsoft Surface and the Future Laboratory (the people who predict industry trends) released the ‘Tomorrow Jobs’ report that suggests ten categories of jobs that haven’t been invented yet but will be needed by as soon as 2025 as technology advances, and habitats evolve.
We’re sure you’ll agree that these jobs sound brilliantly sci-fi but whilst they may look unreal, the report goes on to recommend the skills required by tomorrow’s students if we are to meet the needs of our over-crowded, always-connected, smart cities and societies.
Take a look at these ten futuristic jobs of tomorrow:
Space Junk Archaeologist: From guided space tours of abandoned satellites to debris exploration and spacecraft archiving, the Spacejunk Archaeologists’ job above the earth will be a busy one.
Human Parts Designer: For this job you’ll need design and bio-engineering skills as you’ll be required to create tissues, organs and body parts to perfectly match each individual as they routinely replace parts to improve performance, longevity and looks.
Memory Storage Specialist: If you’ve ever wanted to capture thoughts and dreams – or to store special memories and free up mind space, you need only wait until 2020. These specialists will be well-versed in the technology to be able to help people utilize the software that will allow you to file and access your thoughts as and when you wish.
Virtual Habitat Designer: As virtual reality becomes so sophisticated it will become near impossible to tell it apart from the real world, this job will require talents from architects, designers and tech professionals to build fully immersive environments in cyberspace.
Rewilding Strategist: As our ecosystems and resources becoming increasingly stretched, we’ll need Rewilding Strategists to repopulate barren landscapes with flora and fauna to encourage the reintroduction of essential or extinct wildlife.
Ethical Technology Advocate: A.I is here and the robots are coming, which means that we’ll need people to integrate these robotic technicians and assistants into our world.
IoT Data Creative: Thanks to industrial automation and smart data, fashion design will need tech brains and data scientists to compete in the future, as smart tags, smart-stock and smart-vending becomes the norm in retail.
Battery Innovator: From super-fast-charging to utilizing organic materials, Battery
Innovators will need to invent new battery storage capabilities to meet the demands of IoT and the connected world.
Freelance Biohacker: Medicine will be looking to become more innovative with its solutions in the near future and will require the skills of people who can approach vaccines, remedies and genetic modification in new, unchartered ways.
Digital Cultural Commentator: Communication has already become visual – especially for the Gen X population. As this becomes a way of life, we’ll need translators who can help educators and brands communicate in this new language for a new culture.
