Now so-called robo-accountants are doing the hard work, freeing accountants from crunching the numbers to make sense of them for operational and financial decision-making purposes.
As technology reshapes the way we work at warp speed, we need to change training methodologies. How do we prepare the next generation for jobs that haven’t yet been invented? What kind of skillsets will they need, when machines can do what humans do? What kind of tech training do they need today to be ready for the future workplace? And would it mean totally rethinking education to encourage creative problem finding and solving? To explore these questions, we look at schools and startups who are rethinking education to learn and explore the new world of robotics, AI and machine learning.
