It is not without reason that we in today’s Denmark have long since become part of digitization. This applies both in private life when checking annual accounts and in many respects at work. Some are skeptical, while others look forward to pen and paper becoming a thing of the past in Denmark. So what will the future bring?
There is no doubt that even though digitization has meant that we have had to change our everyday lives a lot, there is also a positive aspect to it. The digital solutions have meant that our work can suddenly be done much more efficiently and quickly, because a lot of data and paperwork can now be found in one place. An example of a digital solution is Power BI from Microsoft. With Power-BI, you get your data presented in an interactive and easy way. You can zoom in and zoom out, find correlations and deviations, as you get an overview of your data at 0.5. It is a smart tool that really shows why digitization is not always completely bad.
A buzzword the past 10 years has been AI or artificial intelligence. Here one has a belief that the computers of the future will be able to imitate and simulate the human being. How people think and behave. Already now we have become acquainted with the robot Sophia, developed by a company from Hong Kong. The lifelike robot. The robot was originally designed to keep nursing home residents Company or help out at major events. You have been able to see videos of Sophia having an ordinary conversation with a human being. It may sound pretty freaky, but maybe it’s robots like Sophia we’re about to keep an eye on for the next while?
Automation of jobs
Similar to robots, we face a challenge when it comes to future jobs. Just as the possibilities of digitization increase exponentially, so the same will happen when it comes to the automation of different professions. In the United States, it is ¼ of jobs that are at risk of being automated. Already in the health sector, various tasks, which were usually done manually, are being taken over by robots. Some of the professions that one predicts will be taken over by robots and artificial intelligence, are bl.a. warehouse work, customer service, pharmacists and various kinds of delivery services. It’s more abstract thinking jobs like graphic designers, lawyers, social workers. Here one often has to be creative, have empathy and be able to think rationally.
It will be exciting to see what comes to see with digitization. So for now, we should probably enjoy that everything has not been taken over by robots yet.
