Technology could one day replace five million jobs
TECHNOLOGY is developing at such a rapid pace it's hardly surprising that it could replace more than five million jobs within 15 years.
While there are clearly some jobs that still need a human touch, I'm sure there are many which could be taken over by robots or machines.
I don't think we need to be concerned with artificial intelligence taking over the world just yet, but it does reinforce how important it is that people stay up-to-date with advancements and developments in technology.
My parents like to joke that when they can't work something out on their tablet or phone they can just give it to a 10-year-old to fix.
And that's not that far from the truth.
It's amazing to watch kids in action with computers, tablets and other electronic gadgets.
They absorb the technology like a sponge and can master using it within minutes, which is good considering that many children will end up doing jobs that haven't even been invented yet.
But I don't think its something to be scared of, we should be embracing it.
