Adedoyin Adedeji releases a new book on choosing a career in Technology
When the internet emerged in the early 90s, businesses saw the huge potentials it could bring. Within a
short time, we witnessed rapid expansion in the usage of the internet. This ushered us into a new era
called the Information Age. Today, humanity is beginning to witness the next wave of revolution – a
digital revolution. This revolution would bring together the physical, digital and biological world. It will
create new systems, possibilities, and solutions. It will have a significant impact on individuals, the global
economy, industries, and governance. The coming digital revolution will have a huge impact on the
transformation of the nature of the workforce needed in the coming years.
According to a recent report by the World Economic Forum, “65% of children entering primary school
today will end up working in completely new job types that don’t exist yet”. New job roles are opening
up while old job roles are fading away. Understanding the coming global changes will make it easier to
prepare for them.
The future of work is here already and at the center of it is technology. Rapid advancements in
technology are reshaping our human experience and the type of workforce businesses need to hire.
New technologies like artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, robotics, self-driving vehicles,
renewable energy, nanotechnology, 3D printing, blockchain, quantum computing, and
Virtual/Augmented reality are ushering us into the next era. The question is – How do we prepare young
