Reduce or Increase in Jobs...
With each passing month, the field of Internet of Things (IoT) is advancing, automating many of the jobs that human beings have done, well….forever. This has led to many being afraid of losing their jobs as a result, so this raises the question – is the development of IoT a good or bad thing for the job market?
It’s true to say that human interference is being designed out of many tasks that IoT can now take care of much more easily, quickly and less expensively. This constant evolution of IoT is undoubtedly going to remove some job opportunities, however, it’s not without its plus sides, as where it takes away, it also gives back in the form of other roles that it creates in other areas.
Throughout industry, there are new job opportunities being created, as well as creating openings for people to make a living over the internet from the comfort of their own home. Whether a lifestyle coach, marketer or blogger, there are plenty of new opportunities to make a good living in this way and all of this has been created by the internet and the smart IoT devices that connect to it.
What’s also key is that human skills are progressing along with these advancements, as in one area IoT takes the place of the lower tiers of the human workforce, it opens up new opportunities higher up the hierarchy. These opportunities are of course only going to be open to those with the ability to adapt and gain the requisite expertise to be able to take advantage of it, however, this has always been the case throughout human history and it’s just happening faster now.
When it comes to training future generations who are entering the workforce, it’s going to take a huge effort from schools and universities to prepare students and allow them to hone their skills in line with the rapid advancements of technology. Ironically, however, IoT is also going to play a part in providing a higher level of quality of education in the classroom, with innovative lessons being given with the assistance of smart devices.
Of course, being afraid of what’s to come in the future is completely natural and it’s simply a matter of making use of the opportunities that IoT development provides, rather than focussing on the lower-level opportunities that it’s taking away. What’s integral to being successful in this rapidly-changing world is acquiring the knowledge and going along with the flow of expertise, so that tomorrow’s workers are able to make use of the new openings.
