We know that technology is evolving at a rapidly increasing pace with strides being made almost daily - artificial intelligence (AI), robotics, machine learning etc.
In five years' time many of today's jobs simply won't exist, although many businesses are struggling to understand what this means for their existing business models.
I found the attached article interesting - particularly for professional services firms with "tax preparer" up there in the top 10 of the first types of job to disappear due to technology advancements. With many accounting firms offshoring this type of work, it begs the question as to whether offshoring will soon become obsolete with technology replacing these jobs completely?
The job market is a battlefield, and it's about to get a lot worse. In addition to competing against other skilled job-seekers for work, you'll soon be pitted against robots as well. Robots have been working alongside human employees in industries such as manufacturing for a long time, helping accomplish tasks quicker or more efficiently. But, as the fields of cognitive computing and artificial intelligence continue to grow, we will see many more industries -- from the food industry to customer service -- affected by automation.
