2021 will go down in the history books as the year that had a cataclysmic impact on not just human beings and their physical well-being, but also on the way we live, work and do business. The COVD-19 pandemic has, beyond doubt, touched every individual on the planet in some form or the other. The world as we know it has turned upside down – children no longer study the way they used to by going to school, students in higher education aren’t on campus anymore, working adults are working from home instead of offices, doctors are doing consultations and diagnoses long-distance through a computer, and almost all business transactions whether trade or retail have gone online. If anything can be done remotely through a computer or mobile device without physical interaction, it will be so. The demand for technology driven business applications, process automation, artificial intelligence and robotics has increased exponentially making individuals and organisations who possess these skills the most highly sought after and valuable.
The World Economic Forum has compiled a list of the top 10 jobs of the future. 5 of these belong to robotics, AI and technology fields. Join our Robotics Classes in Dubai to explore the job opportunities in this industry.
Smart-Home Design Manager
Our houses and apartments are tech-enabled, making tasks easier. Devices, like Google Nest. identify friends or strangers at the door. Samsung’s Family Hub refrigerator photographs what’s left in the fridge and makes suggestions based on our diets. Amazon’s Alexa offers all of the information we need by simply asking her.
There has been a surge in digital and tech-based activities over the outbreak. Extended reality (XR), which is inclusive of virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR) and mixed reality (MR), has seen an increase in usage by consumers and become progressively more popular with brands looking to innovate and reach curious audiences.
We see AR and VR being increasingly used in virtual shopping platforms, real estate developer websites, social media and gaming, travel videos to name a few.
XR immersion counsellors will work with technical artists and software engineering, training and workforce collaboration leads to massively scale the rollout of best-in-class AR and VR.
Jobs in data science remain the fastest growing with a 42% growth in Q1 ’21. These include jobs in the tech-heavy “algorithms, automation and AI” family. With such a high demand, they’re also scarce; that’s where data detectives help bridge the gap to get companies to investigate the mysteries in big data.
The other big catastrophe of 2020 was the massive onslaught of state-sponsored cyberattacks and ransomware. The ability to forecast such events and be prepared to protect digital platforms that are now the lifeline of world trade and economy is critical. The CJoF (Cognizant Jobs of the Future) Index puts growth in openings for cyber calamity forecasters grew 28% in Q1 ’21.
Human-Machine Teaming Manager
The relentless rise of robots in the workplace continues at an accelerated pace. Human-Machine Teaming Managers will operate at the intersection of people and robots and create seamless collaborations. Already, openings for forerunner roles like robotics technicians grew 50%.
There are other roles that will see growth, based on trends, especially pertaining to our health and safety. It’s reasonable to foresee an increase in the need for home healthcare aids, nurses, health and medical professionals.
Also, with remote-work options commonplace, people have moved from big cities to suburbs and rural locations. As new houses are built and homes upgraded to accommodate working from home, tradespeople, such as electricians and plumbers, will be in high demand.
Despite the pandemic, now is a fantastic time to join our Robotics Classes in Dubai and start acquiring skills in the above fields to embark on an exciting new career for which demand is unprecedented and will continue to grow in the foreseeable future.
