The workplace of the 20th century is no more. In my view, its remnants of menial labor and tasks completed by hand are soon to simply a vestigial tail of a bygone era. The future of work lies in the digital world.
One major indicator: Amazon announced in July that it plans to spend $700 million to train about 100,000 workers in the U.S. by 2025, helping them move into more highly-skilled jobs. Why spend such a fortune? Because Amazon has already accepted the reality that advances in automation will soon be able to perform a vast number of jobs currently completed by humans.
