How education sector can reform the AI driven workforce?

How we entice seeing the matters of profound innovation in the Artificial Intelligence is not just a matter of being astonished and inspired anymore. It’s more a matter of profound worry which portrays the perils of a “jobless future”, bringing up that most jobs can be broken down into a series of routine tasks, more of which should be possible by machines.

So which occupations are the most vulnerable?

Employment in today’s robot dominated era are at high stake. The risk of potential automation is soaring. Especially, most workers in transport and logistics, taxi and conveyance drivers.  Numerous representatives in the administrative sectors such as receptionists, security guards, clerks, telemarketers are probably going to be substituted by computers.

However, further investigations have put the vulnerable figure at 35% of the workforce for Britain and 32% for India. The UK is creating 131,000 new services jobs at 16% growth and India 160,000 at 14% growth based on the make-up of the workforces and anticipated service delivery work.

Although, in the past innovation has ended up creating a larger number of occupations than it devastates. That is a direct result of the way robotization works. Computerizing a specific task, with the goal that it should be possible more rapidly or economically, increases the demand for human workers to do alternate assignments around it that have not been automated.

In this contemporary era automated teller machines (ATMs) may have been required to spell fate for bank employees by assuming control over some of their normal errands, and without a doubt, they decreased the number of jobs in every branch to almost a half. Yet, that diminished the cost of running a bank office, enabling banks to open more branches to cater to the increasing number of clients. The quantity of urban bank offices escalated by 43% in a short time, and instead of presuming automation took the jobs away… it actually did the contrary.

Computers in this manner reallocate instead of uprooting employments, expecting specialists to learn and develop new skills and aptitudes.

We can’t foresee what employments will be made later on, however it’s always been the fear of the unknown which has been taken less optimistically. And when that unknown challenges the acumen, the fear multiplies.


Envision telling somebody a century back that there will be game designers, ethical hackers or cybersecurity specialists. These are employments that no one in the past would have anticipated.

There will likewise be some new employments made in the field of AI itself. Self-driving vehicles may require remote administrators to adapt to crises or ride-along attendants who thump on entryways and mistreat bundles. Corporate chatbots and client benefit also should be assembled and prepared and have discourse composed for them (AI firms are said to be caught up with procuring artists); they should be always refreshed and kept up, similarly as sites are today. What’s more, regardless of how cutting-edge manmade brainpower turns into, a few occupations will always be better done by people, remarkably those including sentimental or social associations. Specialists, consultants, psychiatrists, painters, designers, teachers, hairdressers, beauticians and fitness coaches fall into that class.

Moreover, AI is used in various industries, which involves numerous factors. It requires investment for procedures to change, gauges to rise and individuals to learn new aptitudes. The qualification amongst development and usage is basic, and time and again overlooked. With AI invading there will be a quick turnover of occupations.


The Current standardized education sector is still following the mindset of post-industrial revolution – to mine workers. Instead, they should focus on creating thinkers. Learning of factual information in middle school, the concentration should be shifted towards alternative reasoning (something robots are incapable of). Examinations should be conducted in a manner where facts and principles are available (open-book) and the question prompts an application from this. Since major engineering tasks will be made redundant, the focus should shift towards the sciences (more college graduates in the sciences). Humanities and arts, public interaction (soft skills) and coding should be given emphasis over orthodox subjects like biology, history, which are more fact-oriented. Encourage learning of indigenous skills such as cooking, painting, writing, performing arts should be emphasized on to proliferate professions.


The Education Innovation Conference, 2018 held by Economic and Strategy Consulting, in association with the University of London focuses on:

How can the education sector respond, If the robots are coming to change the nature of the world of work?
How can the sector today help create a workforce that can do tomorrow’s jobs?
To what extent can education technology help?
Are universities adequately equipped to be as agile as they now need to be?
Where the opportunities for foreign collaboration?

These ideas will be discussed at the Education Innovation Conference on 23rd January 2018 in London. The last two years of the EIC have seen major delegations of Vice Chancellors, skills providers, leading public policy thinkers, tech companies and investors from around the world attending to discuss collaboration in this area. This year’s conference will attract more than 200 attendees, with delegates from over a dozen countries already confirmed.
