According to the World Economic Forum, automation will displace 75 million jobs by 2022. In Shanghai, JD.com’s 40,000 sqm warehouse is operated by robots and just 5 people. Ericsson will open its fully automated factory next year and Tesla’s goal is to run all factories without human help as soon as possible. On the flipside, 133 million new roles may emerge due to new business opportunities all around the world.
China is a leader in 5G and e-commerce, Kenya leads in mobile payments and India in digital and registration. So the 4th Industrial Revolution is boosting new roles in these countries. Hyper-connectivity and cloud computing platforms allow us to work and collaborate from anywhere in the world. The variety of As-a-Service solutions enable flexibility and free choice and support the development of the Gig Economy.
Voice and facial recognition, IoT and wearables help track our activity – supporting HR and recruitment processes. All of these raise questions about privacy, but they seem inevitable – in two years, nearly 20% of US citizens will use some kind of wearable or activity tracker. All these trends are heavily shaping the future of work.
