Industry 4.0, future jobs belong to the robots

It is normal for jobs to progress and adapt slightly over time, but considering that we are on the brink of industrial revolution 4.0, we are experiencing major changes and we, and especially fresh young people on the labor market, have to adapt to the new requirements. Stephen Hawking tells us that "Intelligence is the ability to adapt to change."
The need for change also requires the reform of education and training systems. In order to be well prepared for the demands of the future, we need to know how to prepare the employees. Old techniques based on a lot of theory and redundant drafting of obsolete principles no longer cope. Jobs that existed in the past as a result of these education and training methods today and especially in the future will no longer exist. It is estimated that one third of jobs for graduates in the world will be replaced by machines and software, and 41% of Kuwait's current workforce is susceptible to automation, such as 46% of Bahrain and Saudi Arabia, 47% The United Arab Emirates, 49% of Egypt, 50% of Morocco and Turkey, and 52% of Qatar. Concerned is the fact that recent studies reveal that innovation results in higher unemployment rates among business leaders.
In the near future, entire domains are about to disappear soon and it is not to be ignored the aspect of the specializations to which people might turn to take advantage of replacing man with the robot. To begin with, we can see that technology takes control of activities that are repetitive and obviously lack creativity. Engineering is affected where the sudden reduction in the number of employees is directly proportional to the plant automation. Considering that computers dominate the world and are capable of building head-to-head machines, it is obvious why the reduction of the employees we mentioned. On the other hand, the automatist engineer, who deals with everything that means automated systems, will be in an extremely opportune place, becoming the industry's leading role.
There will be strong demand for professionals who can combine digital skills with traditional expertise, such as digital and mechanical engineers; Data analysts on business operations that deeply combine industry knowledge with the latest analytical tools to quickly adapt business strategies. There will also be more demand for user interface experts who can facilitate a very efficient human-machine interaction. Transforming certain work environments and their physical limits - such as safer and more inclusive production lines for advanced factories Or the ability to work at a distance through online collaboration platforms - can also open a wider range of careers for women.
Another job that will suffer, perhaps most, is the travel agent. According to studies, employment in this field has fallen by almost 15%, all due to technological developments. New technologies and intuitive platforms help the masses to reserve their own airline tickets online. It's easy, and the comission to the agent is avoided. As well as booking reservations, thanks to platforms such as Booking, people today choose their own accommodation, change them, and often avoid additional cancellation fees. Those who benefit from this technological change are, of course, web developers.
It is clear that the revolution includes us and only the trained will survive. Our chance is to be as informed, educated and aware of the fact that we will be asked for other skills. Creativity, flexibility and connectivity are our allies in this era of globalization and the most powerful weapons are our own motivation and desire to change according to the prototype of the future employee!
