In the video below on CxO Talk, I asked Anne Dwane, former Chief Business Officer of Chegg about what skillsets current and future employees consider getting.
In my view, there are three waves of job reduction that we need to look at:
- First wave of job reductions would happen when simple tasks become automated
- Second wave of job reduction would happen when connected tasks become automated
- Third wave of job reduction would happen when holistic tasks become automated
In order to tackle these job reduction waves, humans have to constantly evolve by not only education and training but gaining diverse experience which can be used to solve holistic problems. At the same time humans can also create expert systems that replicate those experiences while humans can be busy in pursuing other experiences.
