What are the top ten jobs that will disappear in the next five years?

  1. Bank tellers
  2. Taxi drivers
  3. Receptionists
  4. Courier delivery staff
  5. Supermarket cashiers
  6. Librarians
  7. Fast food workers
  8. Industrial production managers
  9. Farmers, ranchers and agricultural managers
  10. Sewing machine operators

Despite its simplicity, this is a very revealing question. It goes to the heart of where we are today, on the cusp of a dramatic generational social upheaval centered on what the future of work is and how we judge the value of work during what will be a very painful transition. This transition is made worse because leaders are not preparing people for conversation, much less reality. This is not about evil immigrants or crafty Chinese, it is because technology and automation are moving faster to displace labor than can create skilled labor for advanced tasks.

"Racing" for the next generation

Despite its simplicity, this is a very revealing question. It goes to the heart of where we are today, on the cusp of a dramatic generational social upheaval centered on what the future of work is and how we judge the value of work during what will be a very painful transition. This transition is made worse because leaders are not preparing people for conversation, much less reality. This is not about evil immigrants or crafty Chinese, it is because technology and automation are moving faster to displace labor than can create skilled labor for advanced tasks.

The “careers” for the next generation - by that I mean 30 years - have not yet been invented, they do not yet have the infrastructure, the tools or the demand for their services, and they will be a little different than what we can conceive of.

Robots, automation, and machine learning will eliminate 50-60% of today's manual jobs by 2030. By 2040, I expect the growth of machine learning, AI development, and access to massive expert systems to be phased out. completely (replace the 60% to 75% need) of demand from lawyers, doctors, engineers, bankers, financial analysts, brokers, and most administrative professionals. In a sense, today's PhD engineer of advanced technical caliber will be the blue-collar worker of tomorrow. That's one of the reasons Jeff Bezo just launched an effort to turn his true manual workforce in his distribution systems into encoders. And don't get me started on the impact of a uterine replicator in 25 years.

By 2050 I hope to see us on Mars and the Moon and probes in deep space, not with men, but with robotic machines operated by a combination of sapphire circuits and software. I believe that humans will discover that it is cheaper to take advantage of nature and simply grow brains and nerve tissue, couple them to circuits to activate machine forearms, advanced sensors and other gadgets and send these systems into space, rather than providing the necessary habitat for the full meal offers humans and still hopes to have enough room for fuel and payload.

One consequence of denying climate change today is forcing our progeny to live it. Rather severe adaptations will be required as high-speed winds whip through hungry, fire-ravaged areas of dust that are blown away by hurricane-force winds.

The next 30 years will be one of turmoil and environmental degradation as the ocean's rise becomes so obvious that even Trumper recognizes it as wind-fueled waves wash over Florida and demand a bounty. With the rise of technology to never-before-seen heights, coupled with the desperate need for that technology to adapt to our deteriorating environment, our grandchildren will be left with a sour taste in their mouths as they try to pay the bills we have left them. That includes a huge growing deficit during a time of plenty, not taking the basic steps to move from fossil fuels to sustainable fuels, and not having a basic dialogue about how, in a technological society, the world of work changes.

In the past, the world of the future looked a lot like the world of the past for many centuries and generations at a time. We are at the cusp where that is about to change and the future and the way we interact will be forever altered. Does anyone have a smartphone?

Society in general is moving from a manufacturing environment to a service environment. Manufacturing is moving overseas with "cheap" labor and inexpensive materials (building where materials is a philosophy that reduces shipping costs). The United States is importing more than exporting (check the trade deficit figures).

The service industry is flourishing in some areas and disappearing in others (typewriter repair) as technology changes.

Example: I went to college as an electrical engineer doing TV repairs. That service has all but disappeared as TVs are now going by the wayside.

Society in general is moving from a manufacturing environment to a service environment. Manufacturing is moving overseas with "cheap" labor and inexpensive materials (building where materials is a philosophy that reduces shipping costs). The United States is importing more than exporting (check the trade deficit figures).

The service industry is flourishing in some areas and disappearing in others (typewriter repair) as technology changes.

Example: I went to college as an electrical engineer doing TV repairs. That service has all but disappeared as televisions are now falling by the wayside and becoming "disposable" ... but computer repair barely existed (except for mainframes) at the time and the service industry Computer repair has peaked and it is moving towards smaller disposable computers (think of a smartphone).

The service industries that will NEVER expire are about people; food, housing, entertainment, medical services, burial services, transportation, financial services… etc. Everything else can be a fad that, under the right circumstances, can or will disappear as society changes over time.

Another area that is going to disappear is anything that requires specialized non-military computing / networking hardware. This is due to software-defined networking (SDN) and software virtualization to run on generic computer hardware that is sometimes referred to as "white boxes" and also COTS (Consumer Off The Shelf).

On a side note: Computing history: Computing started with big mainframes and then democratized with PCs and is now moving back to big mainframes (Think Big Data: Hadoop services, Cloudera, AWS Amazon Web Services .. etc. In a few years you can change again with personal Big Data using photonic or quantum computers as the technology changes again.

6.) Airbnb Administrator - someone who specializes in marketing Airbnb properties and managing them profitably
7.) Portable Device Marketer - I don't know what this means yet, but if history is an indicator, anything with a screen, processor and connected to the internet has advertisements on it. So there will probably be specialists for this emerging medium.
8.) IOT Engineer - Low-level hardware and software generalist who can use a variety of sensors, near-metal software, and network software to design custom IOT hardware solutions (for both mass market products and specific use cases )
9.) IOT Technician - Maintenance technician responsible for configuring and maintaining IOT device networks. There will be so many devices to maintain that there will be full time jobs to keep them all working and replace the sensors / devices
Defective 10.) Private Sector Fund Manager: With CrowdFunding on the horizon and companies waiting longer to go public, there will be more AND more investment opportunities will emerge in private companies that do not qualify for traditional Venture Capital investment, analysts financiers and money managers dedicated to managing portfolio strategies only in the private sector

Many people focus on technology with a question like this. But five years is not a long time for technology to displace jobs, much less politics. Let's take something like self-driving cars, although the technology is here, it will be decades and possibly generations before it is adopted to displace truck drivers due to pushback from Luddites like truckers unions and technophobics.
So I would say that zero professions will disappear completely in 5 years. Some may change a bit.
If you are taking a broader perspective, like 20 years, that's a different story. But I still think that if you try

So I would say that zero professions will disappear completely in 5 years. Some may change a bit.
If you are taking a broader perspective, like 20 years, that's a different story. But still, I think if you are trying to forecast, the focus should be less on technology that replaces jobs directly and more on how technology will change economic and social issues.
This is my opinion for two reasons.
1. Because we can look back to 20 years ago and observe trends. Take, for example, travel agents. This used to be a lucrative profession as a kid, now it doesn't exist at all. This is not because we have created a robotic travel agency. It's because their merchandise was information and relationships. Information is now free unless it is carefully saved and social media has changed the nature and expectations of casual relationships.

2. Because I believe, unlike many people, that true AI is a long way off. For example, if you want a robot maid, you will have to fold towels. This may seem simple to a person because people can easily imagine what the towel looks like and how it should look rather than simply reacting to incoming data from their eyes.
Robots are really bad at folding towels

Islands, mountains, corals and cities - the fury of nature will spare none of them. The beautiful places that please and comfort you may not be there for the next generation to see! In fact, some of them will disappear in just another 15 years.

Don't you believe us? You'll! In fact, it will put you off to know that some hauntingly beautiful landscapes and countries, some of them even your favorites, are among the places that will disappear in 2050. They are about to disappear completely from the world map, which means you have to plan a trip to these places now, just to say goodbye, if nothing is

Don't you believe us? You'll! In fact, it will put you off to know that some hauntingly beautiful landscapes and countries, some of them even your favorites, are among the places that will disappear in 2050. They are about to disappear completely from the world map, which means you have to plan a trip to these places now, just to say goodbye, at the very least!

1. Majuli Island in India

Could be gone by: 2030

Majuli Island, once larger at 1,200 square kilometers, is now less than 400 square kilometers. Disastrous floods and massive erosions have caused the island to sink. Don't miss out on this melting pot of Assamese culture and ravishing beauty. It might just be a mention in the books very soon

2. The Great Barrier Reef of Australia

Could be gone by: 2030

The size of the world's largest coral reef has decreased by more than 50% of its original size. Now imagine these vibrantly colored corals suddenly turning white. Ugh, what a shame that would be. Visit it before we completely lose it in the next 15 years.

3. Glacier National Park in Montana

These lovely glaciers may not be there for the next 15 years. They have decreased from 150 to 25 in the last 80 years. According to research, it could disappear completely in the next 15 years. What a loss of beauty!

4. Maldives in the Indian Ocean

Maldives, in addition to being a country of heavenly beauty, may win another title! It could be the first country to dive into the ocean due to global warming. It is the only country in the world with an average of 2.3 meters above ground level and 1.4 meters above sea level. I bet you didn't know this? Hurry, because your dream vacation destination may not be there for the next 20 years.

5. Great Wall of China

Could be gone by: 2035

The heritage site, which has been well preserved for over 2000 years, is now on the verge of turning from ruin to ruin. Excessive agriculture and air pollution are the main reasons. You have less than 20 years to visit this beautiful handicraft display.

6. Snow-covered Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania

Could be gone by: 2035

In the past 90 years, the Kilimanjaro ice sheet has shrunk by a whopping 85%. It is said that it might not be there for the next 20 years. Buckle up and plan your trip, you won't want to miss out on this charisma.

7. Venice in Italy

Could be gone by: 2035

It is no longer a secret that the romantic city: Venice is slowly sinking. Its dramatic canals are sinking. Now if you miss this, it would be blasphemy. No more gondola rides, no more accommodations on the water channels, no more romantic nights on the water for the next 20 years. The loss for the romantic world will be irreplaceable.

8. Bangladesh in Asia

Could be gone by: 2045

With just one meter of rise in sea level, we could lose 50% of Bangladesh to water. Researchers say that in the next 30 years, we may not be able to visit the beauty of Bangladesh at all.

9. Madagascar in Africa

Could be gone by: 2045

The huge island country of Africa may not be there for long. Due to the multitude of wildfires and massive deforestations, it is predicted that it will only be there for the next 30 years. Melancholy would be, if suddenly, the backdrop to our favorite animated film, Madagascar, weren't there.

10. The Alps in Europe

Could be gone by: 2050

The European Alps are at a lower altitude than the Rocky Mountains, and its glaciers and ski resorts are more susceptible to the effects of global warming.

11. South Australia

Could be gone by: 2050

Desertification is threatening this beautiful piece of land. Dry water resources Dry landscapes add to the threat. Visit the beauty before rapid wildfires and ecosystem depletion engulf the beautiful region for the next 35 years.

12. North Africa

Could be gone by: 2050

The Sahara desert in North Africa is growing at an alarming rate of 0.8 kilometers per month. Just pray that it doesn't consume all of North Africa in the next 35 years, as the researchers claim. It would be a shame if we lost it, to the wrath of nature.

13. The Dead Sea bordering Israel and Jordan

Could be gone by: 2050

The famous salt lake, the Dead Sea, is known for its floating properties. Unfortunately, more than a third has disappeared in the last 40 years. If the reports are to be believed, there will be no more Dead Sea in the next 35 years. Hurry up and fulfill your floating dreams before it's too late.

14. Northern tundra in Alaska

Could be gone by: 2050

Did you know that the breathtaking beauty of the Alaskan tundra is short-lived? Global warming has been shown to affect the Arctic twice as much as the rest of the world. You only have to visit it to realize how bleak it will be to lose so much beauty at the hands of global warming.

One thing that even feels useless now is travel agencies. With websites like booking.com, a visit or call to the travel agent is completely useless and will usually cost even more when done through an agent.

This was a short list of jobs that will not exist in 10 years due to the evolution of technology. If you really think about it, robots or AI can replace any human in a job and be more efficient and faster. They don't require lunch breaks, they don't take sick leave, and they don't have their "days off."

After the resurgence of deep learning and the current hype of artificial intelligence forced people to believe that there would be "DOOM DAY", and before that day everything would be normal and after that day everything will change out of nowhere. In contrast to this approach, innovation, change and replacement is a gradual process. That at first it was used in laboratories but it was not viable for commercialization, then that product (here product means robotics related product) is introduced on the market with many errors and failures that make its use impractical or less useful. Then improvements are made and the product becomes poorly familiar with the product.

After the resurgence of deep learning and the current hype of artificial intelligence forced people to believe that there would be "DOOM DAY", and before that day everything would be normal and after that day everything will change out of nowhere. In contrast to this approach, innovation, change and replacement is a gradual process. That at first it was used in laboratories but it was not viable for commercialization, then that product (here product means robotics related product) is introduced on the market with many errors and failures that make its use impractical or less useful. Subsequently, improvements are made and the product becomes little familiar with daily use. This process goes on and on and new versions are introduced to address the flaws presented in previous versions. After many iterations, at some level, the product becomes practical enough to replace or alternate an option to human labor. No one will believe if I tell you that Washing Machine is also a kind of robot that replaced or minimized human labor. ATMs (tellers), drones, ERP applications, automation-based software, industry automation are all examples of robots replacing humans. Another misconception is that people began to believe that humans were a machine when they talked about robots. Robots can be any human machine or as small as a chip or invisible as bacteria. Computer translation is already on the market and improving at a rapid rate. Therefore, human translators would be less needed and this work will gradually decline or be out of public use. The handheld smartphone is a kind of robot that provides you with the translation in any language you want. The human guide to assist you during your tours is another affected job. GPS on your phone or any GPS device made human assistance obsolete. Driverless cars will strongly affect the profit of drivers. Cleaning machines are already on the market, but a little AI turns into household items. The biggest problem with robots today is that they lack the understanding of language. Nevertheless, Recent advances in NLP and speech recognition will encourage robots to interact with humans rather than passive button instructions. Many things are already on the market and impacted hundreds of millions of people in terms of providing luxury or snatching jobs. This impact will deepen with each step with improvements in artificial intelligence in general and deep learning in particular. They become household items.

Blockchain industry or wuo industries make full potential use of Blockchain technology.

Blockchain is more simply defined as a decentralized and distributed ledger technology that records the provenance of a digital asset.

As we are adapting to the digitized world at such an impressive rate, I think it is only a matter of time before it reaches the level of exponential growth.

Following demonetization, the RBI issued a statement focusing on the potential of Blockchain to combat financial scams and fraud and to transform financial markets and payments infrastructure entirely.

Blockchain industry or wuo industries make full potential use of Blockchain technology.

Blockchain is more simply defined as a decentralized and distributed ledger technology that records the provenance of a digital asset.

As we are adapting to the digitized world at such an impressive rate, I think it is only a matter of time before it reaches the level of exponential growth.

Following demonetization, the RBI issued a statement focusing on the potential of Blockchain to combat financial scams and fraud and to transform financial markets and payments infrastructure entirely.

India already has many startups, businesses and companies working, exploiting and exploring the best use, although we have a long way to go.

For example, IndiaChain, NITI Aayog's pilot project in Blockchain technology, was developed to help create job opportunities in this domain. At the state level, Andhra Pradesh became something of a pioneer by becoming the first Indian state to take advantage of Blockchain technology to maintain territorial records.

If you are wondering how Blockchain technology works, you must watch videos and read articles on the internet and read books. It sounds complicated, but it really is very simplified and incredibly safe. I am 100% impressed with the technology, although a bit disappointing that many are talking about it. This could literally be the next internet-like invention to solve / simplify various problems.

For the record, Blockchain and Bitcoin are two very different things, although invented at the same time as a result of another.

Thank you for reading.

  1. Most of the mechanical assembly jobs will be delivered to robots by 2030.
