Check out the World Economic Forum's Future of Jobs Report 2018.

There's a Strategic Drivers of New Business Models section, featuring the top 10 trends predicted to positively and negatively impact business growth up to 2022.

What do you think about these trends?

Interestingly, 'advances in artificial intelligence' is listed as a trend set to both positively and negatively impact business growth.

Some of these trends seem timeless, such as 'shifts in government policy'. While others, like 'effects of climate change' and 'increasingly ageing societies' are more specific to our current times.

Personally i think the biggest topics are artificial intelligence and increasingly ageing societies. It is artificial intelligence have positive and negative effects for the job market and the workplaces in the future. The technology have the potential to make some work easier, but on the other side some jobs would be disappear, in my view in the logistics. Logistics can be fully automatized with robots combined with the KI and replace Humans in this sector.

The second point the "ageing societies" is a bigger thing in the future. The effects on the job market are, older employees retire in the short and midterm time horizon. Today, we have the problem to find enough people the fulfill these vacancies, and in the long term this could be a very big problem. Maybe than it is possible KI overtakes more and more workplaces from Humans.

I hope i could contribute a valuable answer.

Definitely interesting! I looked online to try to figure out the meaning of KI – it's the German abbreviation for artificial intelligence (künstliche Intelligenz), correct? 🙂

Thanks for sharing your thoughts, @Marcus.
