Dell Technologies has created a social experiment video titled ‘Realising 2030: The Future of Work’, which showcases the views of experts and the perspective of young minds (GenZ) about what they think jobs in the future (the year 2030) would look like.

Based on ‘Future of Work’ report by Dell Technologies in collaboration with Institute For The Future, the video emphasises on how emerging technologies like artificial intelligence, machine learning, internet of things etc. will change the way we work in the year 2030. With these new-age technologies seeping into every aspect of our lives, the video also highlights how there might be the creation of new jobs in the future that do not even exist as of today.

The Future of Jobs Report 2018 by the World Economic Forum found that in 2018, an average of 71% of total task hours was performed by humans, compared to 29% by machines. By 2022, WEF estimates that this average is expected to have shifted to 58% task hours performed by humans and 42% by machines. 

The future of work report by Dell also highlighted the three shifts that could help shape a more inclusive and rewarding work environment over the next decade: 

* Shift 1: Inclusive Talent - Human and machine partnerships will create more equitable workplaces by evaluating candidates based on their capabilities, rather than gender, age or class. 86% of Indian business leaders expect using new technologies to create equal opportunities by removing human bias in decision-making (Global: 67%)

* Shift 2: Empowered Workers – With new immersive technology like XR, collaboration among employees will empower workers more than ever before. 91% of Indian business leaders plan to use emerging technologies to improve workforce productivity (Global: 86%)

* Shift 3: AI Fluency – Human Capabilities will not be replaced by AI, it will rather complement and augment human capabilities. A deep understanding of AI and human and machine systems will unlock human potential and set workers apart. It will allow workers to use their skills to manage workflows and accomplish tasks. After all, 74% of Indian business leaders would welcome people partnering with machines/robots. (Global: 70%)

Alok Ohrie, President and Managing Director, Dell Technologies, India, said, “Emerging technologies today are not only creating new possibilities for people to connect and connect more seamlessly, but they are also enabling new ways to collaborate in the workplace. As we prepare for the future workforce, organisations will need to realise the potential new technologies can bring into the workplace while also preparing their current workforce with skills they need to succeed. The next decade brings with it an opportunity to apply emerging technologies to shape the future such that more people can engage in meaningful, creative and sustaining work. Strengthening human-machine partnerships will bolster opportunities for economic empowerment as well as decent work for all. After all, technological advancement is one undeniable force that will shape the future of work, impacting various spheres of our lives.”
