The Fourth Industrial Revolution (IR4.0) transforms the way we live, work, and interact from self-driving vehicles to drone delivery. As artificial intelligence takes up more and more work, what will today’s students do to remain competitive in the future Job Market?
Automation and artificial intelligence are 4IR changes that make some staff classes obsolete, replace them with new staff with the necessary expertise, or with more affordable machines. It is time for the students to study at college or university for a diploma or degree that will set them up for a better life.
The government is currently working on the IR4.0, which would generate more skilled workers and address the current high unemployment rate. Among the skills needed are Complex Problem Solving, Critical thinking, Creativity, People Management, Coordinating with others, Emotional Intelligence, Judgement and Decision Making, Service Orientation, Negotiation, and Cognitive Flexibility.
