Chart shows jobs most likely to be done by robots in the future & what to do about it

Chart shows jobs most likely to be done by robots in the future & what to do about it | Digital Transformation of Businesses | Scoop.it

Mckinsey ran a comprehensive study of nearly 800 different jobs in the United States, ranging from CEOs to fast food workers. Between these roles, they found 2,000 individual work activities, and assessed them against 18 different capabilities that could potentially be automated. In their analysis, they found that 45% of work activities representing $2 trillion in wages can already by automated based on proven technology that currently exists. A further 13% of work activities in the U.S. economy could be automated if the technologies used to understand and process human language were brought up to the median human level of competence.

Farid Mheir's insight:

An interactive chart that graphs 800 different jobs along with their automation potential - as estimated by McKinsey.

 

WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT

If you are in school or just out of school, this chart should be of particular interest. For all the others, this is essential must read tooling when preparing strategy and planning for the future of your business unit, organization - large or startup.

 

Jobs with highest potential for automation represent opportunities for cost reduction, process improvements to reduce lead times, or creation of the automated tools and software that will replace them. For example:

  • medical appliance technicians: 100% automation potential. If you are in this field your business plan should include major shift from human workers to robots. If employees are unionized, look at contract negotiation and employee retraining. If you build medical appliance, ensure your hard-software appliance includes the necessary components to make this automation simple and effective.
  • sewing machine operators: 100% automation potential, 143K workers in the US. Replacing human by robot sewing machine is efficient but will require capital expenditures: has it been forecasted in your budgets? If that throws your business model out of whack, you have to think like a startup and "pivot" your company to a different yet adjacent space such as custom apparel design and fabrication.

More people work on Internet publishing than in newspaper

More people work on Internet publishing than in newspaper | Digital Transformation of Businesses | Scoop.it
Few industries have been affected by the digital or information age as much as newspapers and other traditional publishing industries (books, magazines, etc.). In June 1990, there were nearly 458,000 people employed in the newspaper publishing industry; by March 2016, that figure had fallen to about 183,000, a decline of almost 60 percent. Over the same period, employment in Internet publishing and broadcasting rose from about 30,000 to nearly 198,000.
Farid Mheir's insight:

US bureau of labour statistics releases historical data that shows the decline of the newspaper industry in favour of the internet publishing.

 

WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT

Less dramatic than previous charts that show the digital cliff that newspaper advertisement business fell in recently, this chart highlights the decline of physical delivery of news in favour of the digital delivery. Right inline with a post I wrote regarding the Digital Cliff in various posts http://bit.ly/1g5adjK (in french), http://sco.lt/5nD06r , http://sco.lt/6gOeWn , http://sco.lt/5Hfzlp 

 

Moreover, the bureau of labour statistics presents a large number of data and charts to help document the digital transformation. See http://www.bls.gov/opub/ted/subject.htm

The Foundations of Data Science
Farid Mheir's insight:

I found this book reference on GitBook. It is the textbook for the class at UC Berkeley and provides not only great content for anyone interested in Data Science (visualization, prediction, etc.) but also for anyone interested in self publication. 

 

GitBook is similar to GitHub, the open source software code repository that pretty much everyone in the industry is using. It provides not only the technology to create and publish a book online or as an ebook but also the social network and collaboration features you'd expect in today's world. Book content can be consolidated from multiple authors, versioned and commented by a network of colleagues or clients.

How to find out everything Google knows about you

How to find out everything Google knows about you | Digital Transformation of Businesses | Scoop.it
Here's how to find out what Google knows about you and is sharing with advertisers, and how to get Google to stop.
Farid Mheir's insight:

This is a very good run down of what you'll find out when you go to google history or google dashboard to find out what Google knows about you.

history.google.com/history

https://www.google.com/settings/dashboard 

 

That being said, and as i've noted before, this is not everything they know about you: Google infers a lot from your web activity outside the realm of google properties via the ad beacons they place all over the web. Moreover, Google predicts and creates a user profile of you - and this information they do not share with you!

WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT

All corporations dream of leveraging data in real-time but the reality of legacy computer systems, lack of expertise with new tools and technologies, and a considerable amount of hype very often makes data strategies overblown and unrealistic. At this point in time it appears that the best course of action is to capture a target vision and identify numerous small initiatives to get your feet wet and run up the maturity scale.

Farid Mheir's insight:

Just one example of the huge rise in mobile phones. Given recent State of the Internet report that indicates Internet growth is slowing down, and that mobile phone sales have levelled off as well, this chart reminds us all that people are starting to use their phones in many different context. So even if growth stalls, the usage and data consumption will continue to grow for a while.

 

WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT

If you propose interesting uses for mobile phones, your clients and employees will use them. And they expect to use more and more in the future. So waht have you planned in your digital strategy to leverage, extend, grow the usage of mobile phones for clients and employees?

Key findings include:

  1. The same four tools—SQL, Excel, R, and Python—remain at the top for the third year in a row
  2. Spark (and Scala) use has grown tremendously from last year, and their users tend to earn more
  3. Using last year’s data for comparison, R is now used by more data professionals who otherwise tend to use commercial tools
  4. Inversely, R is no longer used as frequently by data practitioners who use other open source tools such as Python or Spark
  5. Salaries in the software industry are highest
  6. Even when all other variables are held equal, women are paid thousands less than their male counterparts
  7. Cloud computing (still) pays
  8. About 40% of variation in respondents’ salaries can be attributed to other pieces of data they provided

Most mobiles apps have very bad retention rates, except messaging apps via @flurry

Most mobiles apps have very bad retention rates, except messaging apps via @flurry | Digital Transformation of Businesses | Scoop.it
In our latest analysis, we found that retention rates of messaging apps out-performed the average of all apps. Messaging app retention is 1.9 times better than the average for one-month retention and 5.6 times better than the average for 12-month retention. The chart below shows the average retention of messaging apps compared with the the average retention of all apps over one month, two month, three months, six months and 12 months. Here we define retention as users who launched the app “n” months after install. The below chart considers new user cohorts from from January 2014 - January 2015.
Farid Mheir's insight:

I would argue the real message in these charts is that most mobile apps have failed to deliver a good user experience or are very badly created/updated. With every company going mobile, this chart should speak volume to any executive about to spend 100K$ or more for its next app.
