With the advancement of technology, many jobs will become absolute with time. Technology has taken a huge turn since the invention of a wheel. Unimaginable things we could have easily referred to as impossible has now been made possible with technology. The following are jobs that will become absolute by 2020 and if you are now learning how to do them, I’d advice that you quit and rather find a job that will not be going out of demand any time soon.
Preferably jobs that people at any stage in life from any part of the world can do and quit thinking about the present ‘money making’ jobs that will only became a thing of the past. You can see some of those jobs you can do by clicking here.
Self-driving cars are no longer a futuristic idea. Companies like Mercedes, BMW, and Tesla have already released, or are soon to release, self-driving features that give the car some ability to drive itself.
Tech companies are also trying to pioneer the self-driving car. Recently, Google announced that it would be testing its prototype of a driver-less car on roads this summer in California.
In an in-depth report from BI Intelligence, we analyze the self-driving car market by analyzing the current state of the self-driving car and provide an in-depth analysis for how we see the self-driving car progressing over the next five years. Our in-depth analysis describes the economic impact that self-driving cars can have and look at the current barriers preventing the self-driving car from coming to market.
How will the self driving cars operate?
- Self-driving cars are not some futuristic auto technology; in fact there are already cars with self-driving features on the road. We define the self-driving car as any car with features that allow it to accelerate, brake, and steer a car’s course with limited or no driver interaction.
- We divide the self-driving car into two different types: semi-autonomous and fully autonomous. A fully autonomous vehicle can drive from point A to point B and encounter the entire range of on-road scenarios without needing any interaction from the driver. These will debut in 2019.
- By the end of the forecast period, we expect there will be nearly 10 million cars with one of our defined self-driving car features.
- Fully autonomous cars are further divided into user-operated and driverless vehicles. Because of regulatory and insurance questions, user-operated fully autonomous cars will come to market within the next five years, while driverless cars will remain a long ways off.
- The biggest benefits of self-driving cars are that they will help to make roads safer and people’s lives easier. In the UK, KPMG estimates that self-driving cars will lead to 2,500 fewer deaths between 2014 and 2030.
- But the barriers to self-driving cars remain significant. Costs need to come down and regulations need to be clarified around certain self-driving car features before the vehicles fully take off among mainstream consumers.
9. Customer service(Call center):
Telemarketing used to happen in a crowded call center, with a group of representatives cold-calling hundreds of prospects every day. Of those, maybe a few dozen could be persuaded to buy the product in question. Today, the idea is largely the same, but the methods are far more efficient.
Many of today’s telemarketers are not human. In some cases, as you’ve probably experienced, there’s nothing but a recording on the other end of the line. It may prompt you to “press ‘1’ for more information,” but nothing you say has any impact on the call — and, usually, that’s clear to you.
But in other cases, you may get a sales call and have no idea that you’re actually speaking to a computer. Everything you say gets an appropriate response — the voice may even laugh. How is that possible? Well, in some cases, there is a human being on the other side, and they’re just pressing buttons on a keyboard to walk you through a pre-recorded but highly interactive marketing pitch. It’s a more practical version of those funny soundboards that used to be all the rage for prank calls.
Using soundboard-assisted calling — regardless of what it says about the state of human interaction — has the potential to make individual call center employees far more productive: in some cases, a single worker will run two or even three calls at the same time. In the not too distant future, computers will be able to man the phones by themselves.
At the intersection of big data, artificial intelligence, and advanced natural-language processing lies Watson — IBM’s computer system that famously beat the top human champions on Jeopardy in 2011. One of its real-world applications is its ability to act as a “customer service agent” that takes calls and answers questions from consumers. With its exceptional capacity for natural-language processing and its ability to tap into large reserves of data, it has the potential to speak plainly with human customers and offer them advice on their specific questions, no matter how complex or technical. Several banks have already signed up to rent an updated version of Watson to do just that.
As this technology continues to advance, there’s no question that companies will be more likely to invest in systems like Watson than human representatives for a whole host of jobs.
Accounting software is nothing new; many accountants have relied on it for years. But the landscape is changing, with software becoming easier to use and more consumer-friendly than ever before. For startups and small businesses, automating their accounting needs is an attractive alternative to paying an expensive accountant.
The transition from professional accountants to do-it-yourself software solutions like Freshbooks and TurboTax won’t happen overnight, and there are a number of situations where human accountants will still be preferred, but most organizations will be perfectly happy to automate it as much as possible. As a result, the demand for accountants will decrease dramatically across many industries in the coming years.
When most people think of attorneys, they think of legal counsel in a courtroom. But presenting evidence and speaking to a jury is only a tiny portion of what lawyers actually do. You’re more likely to find them in their offices, drafting legal documents and other paperwork, and digging through case law to find support for various legal arguments — things that computers can (and have) been trained to do.
Attorneys rely heavily on language. Computers are already capable of writing news articles and even entire books on technical subjects — imagine the potential of software that can draft legal documents, examine evidence in a case, and analyze past cases and their outcomes to structure arguments and legal documents independently.
LegalZoom, which allows you to form an LLC or incorporate your business without a lawyer, is already making waves in the legal industry. Phoenix attorney Richard Keyt reports:
If you are an attorney whose practice areas includes any of the types of “nonlegal” services offered by LegalZoom then you are competing with LegalZoom whether you want to admit it or not. One of my areas of practice is the formation of limited liability companies. I have formed 3,400+ LLCs since I started counting in 2002. My main competitor is LegalZoom, not other attorneys who charge a lot to form an Arizona LLC and do not give clients much in return.
There’s no question that software and artificial intelligence will continue to disrupt the legal industry, likely displacing a number of workers in the process.
