How AI Will Impact Technology Careers Of The Future
Briefly

In the last two decades 'learn how to code' has become commonplace advice shared across many High Schools and Universities worldwide when asked how students should prepare for careers of the future. What they don't tell you is that more than 50% of jobs across top technology firms like Google and Meta require exactly zero coding skills. This narrative misses a very important fact. That beyond just writing code, even the most technology forward businesses have to excel at solving other types of problems, problems that require a myriad of different skills. Like the ability to evaluate, learn, and use new technologies to solve problems. Not build them. And skills that require sophisticated levels of written and verbal communication, research and collection of data, the ability to plan and manage complicated projects, the skill of decision making when faced with competing priorities or stakeholders, and more.

In a recent interview with global higher education community FOHE, Paul LeBlanc, education innovator and President of Southern New Hampshire University, said that as AI evolves most likely taking over highly manual or repetitive jobs, 'human-centered' professions will be in more demand than ever before. Human decision making is nuanced, often relying on a combination of data, past experience, and gut instinct. While computers are infinitely better than humans at anything systems oriented they lack the ability to judge a situation based on qualitative factors like relationships and human motivation. Furthermore, the complex nature of organizing humans toward a unified goal, like curing cancer or educating the masses, depends on something that a computer can never replicate.
