Artificial Intelligence (AI) is changing all future careers & jobs
The impact of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and change are unprecedented at this time. Core life skills, flexibility and people skills are required to survive, prosper and be employable. Whole industries are being wiped out or transformed so fewer humans are employed. This page was originally made in 2017 due to an ABC news feature article. This below article has been consistently reused by ABC Australia over the past 5 years. It's a massive issue. How do you get ready for a life where change is accelerated?
What's required to thrive in this new world?
The immediate focus with Student Success Tutor is the core study and learning skill set to improve study, memory and learning. To make it most effective the student is asked to monitor themselves and to notice how it works for them. This means they start to see their internal processes and what impact that has on their learning and motivation. This takes their abilities to an enhanced level.
To embody these deeper benefits that this service gives may not be the original intention, however they are the greater outcome. A structural shift to problem solving and self monitoring gives a person the ability to chase their dream and make life work. They build the skills and guts to deal with failure, rejection and life's hard lessons that we all face.
Hence the importance of feedback and monitoring with this academic life coaching service. This builds the application and motivation to get the work done. Behavioural change is then guaranteed. Like riding a bike, once these skills and motivation habits have been learned they are not forgotten. Then later in life, they are there to be picked back up and ridden again, just like the bike.
These skills of going through this important learning curve build courage and self acceptance. From this place, life is approached from a more empowered place. While better grades are the focused outcome, the bigger value is an enhanced life for years into the future.
Artificial Intelligence is coming...
It's in the news constantly
My personal outlook is to be positive. To nurture and encourage a positive potential for myself and others. Yet I think this following issue of artificial intelligence (AI) is too important to ignore as it will force us all to be comfortable with change. The current student generation will face this full-on. Education systems are simply not geared to what is coming.
For the past five years, artificial intelligence taking and changing jobs has been in the news. In 2017 Australia the ABC news website has published over 10 keynote articles on how all professions will be hit. Scary pictures like this one on the front page of the website for months are features you see every day for weeks. This picture here has been repeatedly used from August 2017 to late 2021 (so far)!
It's not just low-skill jobs, but highly skilled professions like doctors, teachers and accountants who will also be affected. The pandemic for example rapidly changed doctor's visits to phone or online appointments.
Set your son or daughter up for life so they are future proof as technology and artificial Intelligence transforms all industries in the decades ahead.
It's important that people have the skills to learn, self motivate and master their direction to succeed in fast changing industries. Help them be future-proof with their internal skills set that they learn here at Student Success Tutor.
Quotes given by world experts in these articles point to what is required:
What does the worldwide head of research at Google tell his kids about how to prepare for the future of work with artificial intelligence? "I tell them … wherever they will be working in 20 years probably doesn't exist now," Peter Norvig says. "No sense training for it today." Be flexible, he says, "and have an ability to learn new things".
"Copying [AI computer] code takes almost no time and cost. Anyone who says they know that more jobs will be created than destroyed is fooling themselves and fooling us. Nobody knows that," says University of New South Wales professor of AI Toby Walsh. "The one thing we do know is the jobs that will be created will require different skills than the jobs that will be destroyed. And it will require us to constantly be educating ourselves to keep ahead of the machines."
Seventeen jobs and five careers — it is exhausting just thinking about it. But that is the prediction for school-leavers, according to research done for the Foundation for Young Australians (FYA).
"We should stop encouraging young people to think about a 'dream' job," Jan Owen, CEO of FYA, says.
These three quotes indicate the required skill sets that are needed to do well in the future.
A good future is simple
- Know how to learn and be sharp.
- Know how to be flexible.
- Know how to research and apply.
- Know how to do it fast.
- Know how to motivate oneself to meet and beat the obstacles to Success.
All these skills are the foundation of the core study skill module. Then after learning these core skills we develop these to a deep behavioural level so academic success is just the start of a bright future.
