Experts all over the world vary on their predictions as to exactly when AI and automation are going to start radically affecting the world’s workforce. One thing they all agree on, however, is that things are going to change and the changes may come fast. The past has shown us many times that those individuals who are unprepared when the waves of technology come crashing through their world, will most likely be left behind.
Our children are facing that dark prospect if we do not help them develop the skills they’ll need to compete in tomorrow’s workplaces.
Many of our education systems around the world remain locked into an outmoded system that prepares children for service and production-based jobs that won’t exist in 10 years time and there is very little emphasis placed upon the creative skills that will be the key to success in your child’s future.
The best way to raise future-proof children is to become proactive partners in education and it falls to us as parents, grandparents, and other important figures in a child’s life to plug the gaps in our children’s education.
Future-proof children will be those who develop an entrepreneurial mindset and view challenges as opportunities. Literacy will always be important, but the so-called soft skills of creativity, empathy, and cooperation are what employers are looking for now, and the demand will only increase in the future.
Learn the skills and knowledge you will need in order to prepare your child for tomorrow.

HUMAN + MACHINE: Reimagining Work in the Age of AI
AI is radically transforming business. Are you ready?
Look around you. Artificial intelligence is no longer just a futuristic notion. It’s here right now – in software that senses what we need, supply chains that “think” in real time, and robots that respond to changes in their environment. Twenty-first-century pioneer companies are already using AI to innovate and grow fast. The bottom line is this: Businesses that understand how to harness AI can surge ahead. Those that neglect it will fall behind. Which side are you on?
