  2. 2. The race against the machine
  3. 3. A major change in the current workforce is about to take place
  4. 4. A major change in the current workforce is about to take place In “Race Against the Machine: How the Digital Revolution is Accelerating Innovation, Driving Productivity, and Irreversibly Transforming Employment and the Economy”, Erik Brynjolfsson and Andrew Mcafee demonstrate why workers are losing the war against the machines.

A major change in the current workforce is about to take place In “Race Against the Machine: How the Digital Revolution is Accelerating Innovation, Driving Productivity, and Irreversibly Transforming Employment and the Economy”, Erik Brynjolfsson and Andrew Mcafee demonstrate why workers are losing the war against the machines.

  6. 6. A major change in the current workforce is about to take place In “Race Against the Machine: How the Digital Revolution is Accelerating Innovation, Driving Productivity, and Irreversibly Transforming Employment and the Economy”, Erik Brynjolfsson and Andrew Mcafee demonstrate why workers are losing the war against the machines. “There is no economic law that says that everyone, or even most people, automatically benefit from technological progress”
  7. 7. Is your job safe in the second machine age?
  8. 8. Frey and Osborne address the hottest new question
  9. 9. Frey and Osborne address the hottest new question In “The Future of Employment“, Carl Frey and Michael Osborne forecast which jobs are most and least likely to be replaced by technology in the next two decades. Their Model predicts that computerisation can be extended to any non-routine task that is not subject to any engineering bottlenecks to computerisation.

  11. 11. Frey and Osborne address the hottest new question “Technological progress in the twenty-first century can be expected to contribute to a wide range of cognitive tasks, which, until now, have largely remained a human domain”
  12. 12. “Algorithms for big data are now rapidly entering domains reliant upon pattern recognition and can readily substitute for labour in a wide range of non-routine cognitive tasks”
  13. 13. Is your Job at stake?
  14. 14. What’s preventing jobs from being automated?
  15. 15. What’s preventing jobs from being automated? Frey and Osborne identified several key bottlenecks that prevents jobs from being automated:
  16. 16. What’s preventing jobs from being automated? Frey and Osborne identified several key bottlenecks that prevents jobs from being automated: Perception and manipulation tasks. Robots are still unable to match the depth and breadth of human perception.
  17. 17. What’s preventing jobs from being automated? Frey and Osborne identified several key bottlenecks that prevents jobs from being automated: Perception and manipulation tasks. Robots are still unable to match the depth and breadth of human perception. Creative intelligence tasks. The psychological processes underlying human creativity are difficult to specify.

Robots are still unable to match the depth and breadth of human perception. Creative intelligence tasks. The psychological processes underlying human creativity are difficult to specify. Social intelligence tasks. Human social intelligence is important in a wide range of work tasks, such as those involving negotiation, persuasion and care.
