Technology has improved the lives of humans in every facet. As I write this article, I am sitting on a plane traveling from Arizona to Michigan. Without technology this obviously would not be possible. While technology has created many jobs that have led to business owners making record profits, some of the more recent technological advances have eliminated jobs forever. Although leaders such as President Trump have assured that jobs in manufacturing, coal, and energy will return to America, the simple truth is that most of the jobs that left these struggling cities did not in fact move overseas, but went extinct.
Consider the fact that there are thousands of college students attending school right now who’s jobs may be automated in the next 5 to 10 years and you have a serious epidemic on your hand. So how do you know what careers are right for you and that cannot be automated in the future? The answer seems to lie in the more advanced careers such as computer science, engineering, medicine, and architecture. These are currently staples of American society that, today at least, no automated technology can penetrate. Becoming in expert in big data is another protected venture at the moment as many automated processes are able to churn out more and more data quicker, giving large corporations more data to cipher through. Entertainment is another sector that is also well protected from automation. The big problem with the industry is the changing revenue generation. Still, if people are able to pinpoint the next wave of profits, there is a solid staying opportunity.
These are but a few examples of fields with low automation possibilities. Are there any we didn’t mention that you can think of? Let us know by leaving a comment below.
