We found our new post on this website.
Here a blogger is speaking over a change that happened around year 2000. Before year 2000 we got a lot of automation caused by machines. After year 2000 this is changing to the automation by software. This makes also a change in the jobs that disappear. Before 2000 we were only changing the workjobs like building cars to machinejobs. But the more automated those jobs are getting the more difficult it will be to replace. Think of a plumber or a firefighter. In software those limits are far more easy to break, especially as the hardware evolves (Moore). The blogger says that a lot of jobs we learn in college are based on knowledge. If there is one thing that computers are good at, it’s knowledge through databases . As a result a lot of college students won’t find work anymore and it has no longer an advantage to spend money on college for a job that not asked for.
Technology will kill not only the low skilled jobs but also the high skilled. and this at the same time.
I’m sure this will happen in the closed future. but we have to make a difference in sort of college studies . If it is pure knowledge based then indeed it will be taken over by technology. But the moment you need creativity, thinking outside the box or ethic problems, it will take a lot more time. A doctor can be helped with a machine who knows all the sicknesses and his symptoms. There is even a supercomputer that is more accurate in finding the diseases then every doctor. But the responsibility has to still lay with someone, that’s where we still need the men in the white dress.
The collegejobs will not disappear in de close future, we only will need less of it.
