The speed of digital disruption is a major challenge which is why it is good to see the UK government taking action.
Make sure you're digital skills match future challenges. Especially look at Data Scientist, Cyber Security and Big Data Analytics roles. And being able to exploit robotics, AI, machine learning by adding human cognition and common sense.
There is a big role for augmented intelligence- the combination of automation and human skills.
The British government is making a major commitment to robotics and artificial intelligence, announcing that $72 million of a $777 million industrial strategy fund will be used to help draw leading companies in these technologies to specific sectors in the UK. The commitment comes at a time when governments are faced with stark forecasts about the long-term impact of artificial intelligence and automation. Many studies suggest that the two technologies will eliminate many jobs, but will also create new jobs requiring highly specialized skills. Forward-thinking governments and organizations are trying to focus now on the new job skills that will be required for the future.
