Technology May Not Take Your Job
In September this year, a study titled ‘The Future of Skills: Employment in 2030’ conducted by ‘Nesta’ revealed the most detailed investigation to date, on the impact of technology in the future. Some of the key findings found that a mere 20 per cent of workers in the US are vulnerable to unemployment. That’s down from the 47 per cent cited in a 2013 study.
