WHAT’S THE STORY?

 

Let’s get some perspective on why the 4th Industrial Age is changing the world of work:

Child_laborer.jpg

1ST INDUSTRIAL AGE

Steam power and the mechanised factory system began to spread worldwide from 1780. This is accelerated by the invention of electricity (the 2nd Industrial era 1870) and by electronics (3rd Industrial era 1960).

Impact: Technology can replace human physical abilities en mass for the first time.

Solution: Introduction of mass Schooling allows society to focus on lifting everyone’s mental abilities to a common level of literacy and numeracy instead. This has opened up amazing opportunities which have directly led to our advanced modern society.

4TH INDUSTRIAL AGE

Combination of internet, miniaturised electronics and wireless connectivity has lead to the development of ‘narrow’ AI (artificial intelligence). Fully sentient ‘general’ AI is expected to arrive 2030-2050 (and mark the 5th Industrial era).

Impact: In specific fields such as information lookup, data analysis and online interactions, AI technology can now replace human mental abilities en mass for the first time. Predications range from 14-70% of jobs being impacted.

Solution: Society has the opportunity to focus on lifting HI human intelligences - often known as soft, enterprise or socio-emotional skills - instead. We can also learn how to combine this with AI and work together, all of which has the potential to lead us to an amazing future as bright as that which universal literacy and numeracy enabled after the 1st Industrial Revolution.

WHAT’S NEXT FOR HUMANS?

Unfortunately as Dr George Land’s research for NASA (that eventually surveyed 1 million people) found, the schooling system which helped after the 1st Industrial Revolution has also reduced the populations creative lateral thinking abilities from 95% at kindergarten to only 15% by year 12.

And yet it turns out that skills such as adaptability, empathy and creativity which can set humans apart in the 4th Industrial Revolution era and allow employees to problem solve and adapt even as technology takes over many tasks are those which employers most want anyway.

THE A3 MODEL:
Understand the impact of tech on work and education.

This free mini-book by founder Jonathan Nalder and community members explains that new technology can be categorised under 3 headings:

Augmentation - tech that assists humans to do more.
Automation - tech that replaces human abilities and skills.
Amplification - combinations of key technologies that create exponential change.
