Millennials aren’t worried about robots taking their jobs

31 October 2017

More than 31,000 millennials from over 180 countries participated in the Global Shapers Annual Survey 2017. An overwhelming number of young people think that technology is “creating jobs” (78.6%) as opposed to “destroying jobs” (21.4%). Young people suspect that the next big technology trend will come from “artificial intelligence” (28%), followed by “biotechnology” and “robotics” (11.5% and 9.3%).
The 3 areas of their existence that young people think will significantly be impacted due to technological advancements in the next decade are “job/career” (63.3%), “studying/learning” (45%) and “travelling and mobility” (37.5%) (Press Release World Economic Forum, 28 August 2017).
