There doesn’t seem to be a shortage of tech innovations that spring from the Silicon Valleys of the world.
What Uber started as a revolution in the taxi industry is now being transferred to other industries as well—thanks to technologies like artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, and the Internet of Things (IoT).
But if there’s a shortage of one thing, it’s the professionals that can adapt and take on the increasingly complex nature of jobs that these technologies bring.
Studies predict that in 2020, the Fourth Industrial Revolution will transform the business landscape. Technologies will not only become more important, but will also create new industries in nanotech, biotech, quantum computing, and others that will revolutionize the world.
Of course, new industries require new and smarter skills. Coding and programming will be in demand, yes, but so are soft skills such as creative thinking, people management, and being a customer-oriented worker.
