Soft jobs skills such as teamwork and the ability to think creatively will be more important than technical skills in the future, where many jobs would have been automated away by robots and computers employing artificial intelligence.
At the same time, technology will have to be deployed increasingly in the workplace, which means that workers will need to be adept at using increasingly sophisticated as well as constantly evolving technology.
As just a simple example, the legal profession is in the early stages of being partly automated with technologies that exist today such as natural language processing and data wrangling.
In banks, similarly, technology can do a huge part of what analysts do, in carrying out online research, analysing and crunching data.
It is hoped that humans and technology can complement each other, as opposed to one replacing the other.
