162 Future Jobs: Preparing for Jobs that Don’t Yet Exist

162 Future Jobs: Preparing for Jobs that Don’t Yet Exist | Made Different | Scoop.it

A recent article in The Economist quotes Bill Gates as saying at least a dozen job types will be taken over by robots and automation in the next two decades, and these jobs cover both high-paying and low-skilled workers. Some of the positions he mentioned were commercial pilots, legal work, technical writing, telemarketers, accountants, retail workers, and real estate sales agents.

 

Indeed, as I’ve predicted before, by 2030 over 2 billion jobs will disappear. Again, this is not a doom and gloom prediction, rather a wakeup call for the world.

Big Bang Disruption: The Internet of Things Takes Off Gradually and then Suddenly | Made Different | Scoop.it

One of the main drivers of Big Bang Disruptors is the constantly improving price and performance of information technologies.  For years, computer processors, memory, and communications capacity have experienced regular, even predictable, growth that is nearly exponential.  Everything gets twice as fast and half as expensive every few years.

Welcome to the Age of the Industrial Internet

Everyone's talking about the "Internet of Things," but what exactly does that mean for our future?


In this thoughtful talk, economist Marco Annunziata looks at how technology is transforming the industrial sector, creating machines that can see, feel, sense and react - so they can be operated far more efficiently.


Think: airplane parts that send an alert when they need to be serviced, or wind turbines that communicate with one another to generate more electricity. It's a future with exciting implications for us all.

The Middle Class Is Steadily Eroding. Just Ask the Business World. | Made Different | Scoop.it

The post-recession reality is that the customer base for businesses that appeal to the middle class is shrinking as the top tier pulls even further away.

 

Big stores and restaurants are chasing richer customers with a wider offering of high-end goods and services, or focusing on rock-bottom prices to attract the expanding ranks of penny-pinching consumers.

How to Get Over Your Inaction on Big Data

How to Get Over Your Inaction on Big Data | Made Different | Scoop.it

For every Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Twitter, Netflix, and Google, there are still thousands of midsized and large organizations that are doing nothing with big data beyond giving it lip service.

 

One big barrier to implementation is the incessant noise around big data from consultants, vendors, and the media. The din leaves many, if not most, CXOs confused and intimidated. They wonder: Do we start small or large? Is big data just another IT project that can be run by a unit head? And what’s the ROI going to be, anyway?

The New 4Ps of Marketing « Saatchi & Saatchi Asia Pacific

The New 4Ps of Marketing « Saatchi & Saatchi Asia Pacific | Made Different | Scoop.it

The 4Ps is a concept originally coined in the 1960s by E.J. McCarthy. In short, if you have the right Product, in the right Place, at the right Price, supported by the right Promotion, you will likely have the right marketing mix in place to be successful. It’s an idea that is still taught in many marketing classes and continues to have traction in certain marketing circles. However, in the Age of Now this model seems out of touch with the expectations of empowered consumers. In turn, we are seeing the traditional 4Ps give way to a new set: Purpose, Passion, Participation, and Profit...

Very interesting (and highly relevant to the helping professions such as coaching...) move from the original 4Ps of marketing (the right Product, in the right Place, at the right Price, supported by the right Promotion) to the new 4Ps:

Purpose (what your business stands for),

Passion (all about leveraging the power of your people to build your brand, see Empowerment...), 

Participation (companies are looking for partners with the same values whom they can work with to make a difference and further their reach)

Profit (self-explanatory...)

 

Now, this is not a gobbledygook, these are real elements and here also appears the unavoidable need for a passionate, involved, engaged, aligned and empowered staff... do you understand the importance of this? It is a free advertisement for the helping professions, guys...

The Future of the Internet of Things [infographic] | Made Different | Scoop.it

Ever wonder why Google is installing extreamly fast gigabit internet infrastructure when the average person needs 200x less speed? It is because of the future of the Internet of Things. In less than 10 years, the internet will not just be for your phone or laptop, everything will be online.

 

I’m talking about your car, fridge, tv, blender, air conditioner, front door, and even your wallet. This inevitable future is why google is starting today with affordable gigabit internet. This new wave of device overload will open up revenue and advertising streams to a whole new level.

 

Today’s infographic states that in 2020, every human being on earth will be connected to 10 separate devices.

 

I know I’m already using five and I bet one of the most prominent technology coming up soon will be wearable tech. If its for exercising, sports, general information or just making phone calls, wearable tech will be an exciting addition today’s digital arsenal.

How 3D Printing Is Going To Change The World

How 3D Printing Is Going To Change The World | Made Different | Scoop.it

Printable limbs and organs, printable guns, printable pizza?! This technology will change our lives.

 

A 3D printer is similar to a normal printer, however a normal printer produces ink on paper. 3D printers, on the other hand, layer atoms on top of each other to create, or print, actual 3D objects.

It sounds fascinating, right? But 3D printing is certainly an invention that did not occur overnight. What is known as 3D printing now was once known as rapid prototyping. Rapid prototyping has been in use for many years now, and it involves an engineer designing an object as a computerized aided design file, or CAD. This file would then be sent to machines, which would produce the 3D object.

The only problem with this early type of 3D printing is that the plastics and the metals that were used were just not of a high-enough quality to be used as anything other than a prototype. Although the machine could produce the parts designed, the end product didn't have structural integrity and was only used to design things that engineers wanted to see a life-size model of.

After reading this article, I thought that creating organs instead of taking them from donors would be so much more efficient in the world today. The only problem is that we are very far from doing so. However, we already have people creating the first steps to creating functioning artificial organs. This would very efficient and helpful for people with major health problems. The furthest they've made it was by building tiny chunks of organs, but that's still revolutionary. My connection to the U.S. is that with the number of accidents in our country, this could help with a ton of medical problems people experience.
