Will working in an ‘office’ be a relic of the past in 2070?
I’m both motivated and terrified by how technological change might transform how we work in the future, for good or bad:
“As technological breakthroughs rapidly shift the frontier between the work tasks performed by humans and those performed by machines and algorithms, global labour markets are undergoing major transformations. These transformations, if managed wisely, could lead to a new age of good work, good jobs and improved quality of life for all, but if managed poorly, pose the risk of widening skills gaps, greater inequality and broader polarization.”
The Guardian gives us a history of how the world of (white-collar) work has changed since the 1970s, and how it might look in the future.
