I am reaching out to all of you. Wake up!! Please wake up!! I spend time in bookstores doing my reading and writing. The majority of people I see are reading car magazines, graphic novels, romance novels or they are on their laptops playing games or surfing the net, tweeting and texting on their cell phones. I read recently where the average cell phone user spends between one and two hours a day on Facebook. Then, at home, watching sitcoms and movies.
Don’t you see? Don’t you hear it? There’s a train coming and it’s going to run you over. 50% of all jobs in every field but engineering, science, computer and robotics will be GONE within 5 to 10 years. That’s HALF of ALL jobs. And while you are sharing photos and meeting friends of face book using your play station your world is changing faster than you could ever imagine.
A man has invented a technology to be deployed in fast food establishments. ALL jobs will be eliminated. ALL. Millions will be displaced.
But you think you are safe because you have a college education or a skill.
Wrong, robots will replace laborers, smart algorithms will replace white collar jobs.
Your only hope is to take on-line courses in robotics, computers, coding, physics, mathematics. Such course are almost free on line.
You have very little time left before the train of technology runs you over.
