100 Jobs of the Future
Rather than dwelling on robots taking our jobs, we can look at the opportunities that technology brings to tomorrow’s workforce. A 2017 report by Commonwealth bank stated that ‘the future of work will be primarily about how people can collaborate effectively with machines to do what neither can do alone’.
Ford Australia partnered with Deakin and Griffith universities to create an extensive report on what the future of work will look like in the coming years.
Here are just a few of the jobs that featured on the list:
• Nostalgists: Assisting in preserving the memories of elderly people to create a personalised experience for older people and people with dementia
• Child assistant bot programmers: Designing humanoid robots that support children to play safely
• Chief ethics officers: Working with large companies and government organisations to ensure they are considering genuine ethical practices and adhering to corporate social responsibility
• Cricket farmers: With 1,900 edible species of insect available, crickets are an excellent and efficient source of protein
