Techie Corner – 2016 – Post #3 – Next Job Revolution

Which emerging technology will create the next job revolution?

My two cents, but please share yours:

The next job revolution will likely come with the rise of robots, androids (humanoid robots), and artificial intelligence. As always, there will be an uncomfortable transition period, while the workforce retrains, again. However once things settle, all those new electromechanical beasties will need endless software upgrades, enhancements, and the inevitable repairs–lots of jobs to be had here, far more than ever before. And, the wee beasties can’t think, create, imagine, or deal with human emotions, leaving all of those future jobs for our ever-growing population, too.

    • Absolutely, Gerri! Throughout history, every technology revolution has created far, far more jobs than those it makes obsolete. 🙂 Cheers, Ashley
