The Job of the Future

I agree with this:

The intellectual equipment needed for the job of the future is an ability to define problems, quickly assimilate relevant data, conceptualize and reorganize the information, make deductive and inductive leaps with it, ask hard questions about it, discuss findings with colleagues, work collaboratively to find solutions and then convince others.

Robert Reich

Do you think this we are educating our future generations for this sort of job of the future?  Are we creating the type of learning and living environments that encourage our kids to tackle these kinds of tasks?

  • I think the Semantic Web will play an increasingly important role due to the volume and varying semantics in the data on the inter or intra net. Enabling machines to draw inferences using ontologies will especially enable us to “conceptualize and reorganize the information, make deductive and inductive leaps with it, ask hard questions about it”. Getting to this is going to be difficult – but achievable. To quote the Six Million Dollar man – “We have the technology”.

    •  I definitely agree that technologies will help us with these jobs of the future.  I just worry that we are on a path that humans won’t be able to this even with the help of tools. Maybe I should hang around smarter kids?
