    Technology is transforming society. Not only do we use technology more and more in our daily life. Our workplaces are likewise evolving digitally, with more and more tasks being automated. This change is known as the fourth Industrial Revolution or Industry 4.0. Production can be efficient according to customer needs with the collection and analysis of real time data and Artificial Intelligence. With increased automation, our time will be freed up for concentrating on more complex tasks. We will need a workforce who are capable of building, programming and developing these technologies. But also making sure we are applying them to our lives in an ethical way.

    There are coarse skills that we, human, can offer that technology cannot replace. Human touch is important to ensuring effective communication, problem solving and supporting change management in this digital environment. There will also be a greater need for joint working across disciplines, creating new innovations. The future job market will be looking for graduates with open mind to explore the unknown future possibilities. We will all need to develop our skills in order to embrace, adapt, to this very changing environment.
