London – Design agency AKQA has joined forces with MiSK, a Saudi Arabian non-profit-making organisation aimed at educating tomorrow’s youth, to imagine the job roles that will be available in 2030. The series of conceptual images, designed by artist Florian de Gesincourt, were conceived at the World Economic Forum in response to the panellists’ predictions and comments pertaining to futuristic job roles.
At the forum it was predicted that 65% of children now in school will have jobs that don’t yet exist, prompting the team to imagine what those future roles could be. One example was a blockchain banking engineer whose job would be to expand the infrastructure of blockchain technology, offering universal access to secure banking.
In our forthcoming Morality Recoded macrotrend, we will examine the future of the workplace, looking at the roles that will be created as artificial intelligence becomes more ingrained in the workplace. Book here for our annual Trend Briefing, where this and other long-term macrotrends will be unveiled.
