Perhaps the hardest part of being a member of the workforce today is predicting which skills and which jobs jobs will be needed in the economy of tomorrow.
On Thursday, the Brookings Institute released a sobering report that details the impact technologies such as Automated Intelligence (AI) will have on workers. “Almost no occupation will be unaffected by technological change in the AI era,” reads the report, which predicts one-quarter of jobs are at “high risk” of being automated.
One tool that can be used to predict which jobs will be in demand in the coming “AI era” is the Cognizant Jobs of the Future (CJOF) Index. The CJoF Index tracks the popularity of 50 jobs predicted to be in high demand in the future. Earlier this week, the index released its latest figures from the fourth quarter of 2018, providing insight into the jobs of the future.
