Looking Forward to the Future of Jobs and Their Completeness

There is a tremendous development that is increasing every day as technology evolves and automation expands, and there is widespread concern and debate about the future that awaits normal human functions in return for the emergence of the unusual, over the next few years, to 2030.
Perhaps to say that many of the functions that human beings are now experiencing will fade and disappear is a right and pessimistic statement for many, but in return it is a bright, civilized achievement for others.
“Technology is God’s gift; it’s probably one of God’s greatest gifts after the gift of life; it’s the mother of civilizations, the arts and sciences,” says Freeman Dyson.
But this is the wrong way to look at it.
Automation, an emerging term, refers to everything that works by itself without human intervention, so dictates the development of perceptions and prospects for future functions, which will emerge as their development dictates, as well as the functions that will fade with their development and breadth.
That is how this will be done, as well as how future jobs will emerge, which is still vague, and still the subject of perceptions, imagination, foresight, and predictions that are always the hardest, the worst in terms of error, yet we can ignore warnings in this regard, then make a special, simplified presentation, and predict proportions of the world that are being built today, and work on it at full swing.
From this, it is possible to visualize the skill demand scale for functional opportunities, under automation, and to look forward to what can be reached until 2030 in all sectors, to find that the demand for cognitive and cognitive abilities will be 75%, systems skills, 51%, complex problem solving, 90%, content skills (theoretical skills) 30%, practical skills 53%, social skills 57%, resource management skills 39%, technical skills 36% and physical skills, 12%.
The stability of these skills can be foreseen by establishing the ratios shown in all sectors until 2025, and we generally find instability 70% and stability 30% and find in the media, entertainment, and information sector instability 54% and stability 46%.
In the consumer sectors, instability 60%, stability 40%, and in the health care sector instability 58%, and stability 52%, and in the energy sector instability 60%. and stability 40%, and in the professional services sector instability 66%, and stability 34%.
In the ICT sector, instability is 70%, stability is 30%, transport sectors instability 78%, stability 22%, infrastructure services sector instability 84%, stability 16%, financial services and investment instability 86% and stability 14%.
The expected results based on these ratios will therefore lead to the growth of the research market, and the functions of marketing specialists by about 10; from now until 2025, technical and computational thinking skills will be the most vital, and the demand for medical and physiotherapists and human engineering experts in the working environment will increase.
This is because it is becoming increasingly important to provide care to a largely older society, and customer service representatives and marketing and sales professionals will become one of the most important functional areas.
Emotional and social intelligence skills and the understanding of effective communication will be required through new media platforms; jobs in education and training are expected to rise, with the sector experiencing significant growth and demand, and the growth of the following functions will double: analysts, administrators, accountants, and auditors who need business intelligence skills and adaptability as key skills.
By 2020, one third of the basic job skills will become unnecessary for today’s jobs, for example, 43% of the skills needed in the financial and investment services sector will soon be redundant, and two thirds of those basic skills will soon be unnecessary by 2025 and may disappear, completely after automation is tyrannical, by 2030.
If we go back a little bit, the vision will be more precise, we will find that in 1980, electronic parts accounted for less than 10% of the car’s production cost. Today, this figure exceeds 30% and will rise to more than 50% by 2030, and these electronic parts and applications will require new skills, and will create several new jobs, such as the cognitive systems engineer, who tests driver-electronic interaction.
In 1980, no one imagined that there would be such a job; in fact, the total number of single-car production workers had changed only slightly in recent decades, despite the presence of robots and automation. So, what does that mean? The answer is that technology will compensate people in several jobs, but we will see the emergence of several new jobs and skills, which means that technology will increase the incompetence of competencies.

The bottom line is that highly skilled people will be a rare currency in the next decade. And to talk the rest.

The future of the UAE industrial economy

The upcoming phase of the industrial economy will be an attractive opportunity for local and international investments. It will ensure to strengthen the UAE’s strategic industrial security, innovation, advanced technology and the applications of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

The UAE has an efficient system when it comes to the field of investments, especially industrial investments. The UAE’s business environment characteristics such as high standards, transparency, rule of law, and the ability of the UAE economy to prosper with stability are a couple of factors that attract success towards the industrial sector. It has to be noted that the UAE boasts the presence of more than 21 integrated free industrial zones in the UAE.

The determination and attitude of the UAE supports drastically in its Sustainable Development Agenda by launching plans for industry development with the aim of strengthening the role of the latter in the national economy. This is enabled by creating a strategy for the future that is aimed at establishing a highly competitive global economic base. These steps were announced by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai. The project was titled “Operation 300 bn” – A 300 billion project to stimulate the industrial sector to be a major channel for the development of the national economy.

The launch of this strategy at this particular time reveals the economic strengths of the UAE, despite the exceptional circumstances the world is going through today. The state has taken this global ordeal as an opportunity to try out the most powerful alternatives, perhaps a great opportunity to realize the importance of shifting from an oil-resource-based economy to new resources based on the industrial economy.

The key components that ensure the UAE’s success in its industrial economy in real time and in the future are the availability of advanced infrastructure, a strong legislative environment, the highest security and safety rates in the world, a strategic geographical location of the state, transport networks and logistics services in accordance with international standards that enhance the ease of export of its industrial products, free zones and various ports and the largest in the world, manufacturing catalysts of high-efficiency raw materials, the availability of skilled labour, low tax rates, as well as the strength of the financial sector in terms of liquidity availability and facilitating financing.

For many years in the industrial economy, the UAE has demonstrated its ability and high efficiency in increasing production and increasing exports, which are the most important indicators and measures of industrial power among countries, thus achieving a prominent position among the major industrialized countries, such as China, Japan, Germany and the United States. With the arrival of its industrial products in different countries of the world, exports of manufactured products within the UAE, which reached more than 170 markets around the world, reached approximately AED 62 billion in the first half of 2020, according to trusted sources and official global reports.

Hence, it can be stated that the UAE has reserved itself a prominent position among the major industrialized countries, through its interest in industrial infrastructure, the establishment of industrial zones, and overcoming the obstacles to the progress of the industrial sector of facilities and legislation, and the result was the UAE’s success in attracting many global investments, becoming the preferred destination for investors in the Middle East and North Africa.

6G technology

The production of devices of modern technology are largely governed by economic factors. Each generation of a product seems to have a noticeable difference that is directly related to its economic factor, not only in terms of the cost of the product, but also in terms of components quality and product effectiveness. One of the key points that can be noticed about the current generation of technological products is that, they are always focused towards the extremes of capabilities that the current possibilities offer, be it the small size, high end specifications or capabilities beyond one’s imagination. Same is the case with AI products. This drastic improvement can be noticed if you compare the first version of the computer which was a humongous device that occupied an entire room where two people could live.
Even today, we follow this pattern of development. The development of the 6G technology is progressing like a race among tech giants such as Nokia, Ericsson, Huawei, Samsung, LG, Apple etc. Countries like China, South Korea and Japan have also expressed their interest in this technology at a time when 5G itself is not completely rolled out.
Researchers already working on the 6G wireless data transmission technology are expecting high speed PV conversions by utilizing the principles of photoscience. The integration of wireless transmission lines in fiberglass networks result in high performance data networks, and pair the receiver antenna directly with the fiberglass.
The concept, explained by the researchers, will greatly reduce the technical complexity of future radio base stations and enable Tera Hertz connections with very high data rates – several hundred gigabits per second will be made possible. The integration of wireless links in fibre optic networks is key to high-performance data networks: future cellular networks will consist of many small radio cells that can be connected by high-performance THz transmission links. In the receiver, THz signals can be converted directly to light signals with the help of high-speed plasmonic rates and transmitted over fiberglass networks.
The technology assumes that future wireless networks in the sixth generation, consisting of a number of small radio cells to transfer large amounts of data quickly and efficiently, will be connected to transmission lines, which can handle tens or even hundreds of gigabits per second per link. The frequencies needed are in the Tera Hertz range, i.e. between microwaves and infrared in the electromagnetic spectrum. In addition, wireless transmission paths must be seamlessly connected to fiberglass networks.
In this way, the advantages of both technologies, i.e. high capacity and reliability, as well as mobility and flexibility, will be combined.
Sixth-generation technology, based on an economic vision, also assumes that future wireless data networks should reach higher transmission rates and shorter delays, with an increasing number of peripherals, just as we find in virtual infrastructure technology in the computer world, where central computer transmission rates are characterized by high-speed data transmission capabilities.
6G aims to achieve much higher transmission rates, shorter delays, and increased device density, with the integration of artificial intelligence, 6G networks will be broadband cellular networks, and the service area will be divided into small geographic areas called “cells”. It can be stated that 6G technology will become a reality and commercially available in the near future.
