Digitalization and the world of the future

The digitalization of business processes, according to various estimates, endangers the disappearance of 9% to 50% of all existing professions in the next 10 years, according to a study by the Moscow Innovation Agency. However, the same report notes that new specialties now emerge every 3-5 years. This requires the ability of the training system to quickly adapt to the requirements of the market. Java in the professions of the future: where programming can come in handy in 10 years - 2According to the report "The Future of the Labor Market", released as part of the World Economic Forum in Davos, the future robot revolution will create 97 million new jobs. By 2025, employers are expected to split work equally between people and machines. Demand for positions that use human skills will grow. The machines will be primarily focused on information and data processing, administrative tasks and routine manual work for white and blue collar workers. By 2025, specialists in artificial intelligence, machine learning and Big Data will be popular in the Russian Federation, Belarus and Ukraine, and accountants, secretaries and lawyers will increasingly be recognized as redundant personnel. As noted in the report, analytical thinking, creativity and flexibility will become one of the main skills required. New professions will be mainly related to data and artificial intelligence, content creation and cloud computing. The pandemic has quadrupled in the last year the number of people seeking self-initiated online learning opportunities, the fivefold increase in employers offering online learning opportunities to their workers, and the ninefold increase in the enrollment of people accessing online learning through government programs.

What will happen to the IT sector?

Information technology is one of the fastest growing sectors of the economy. As stated in the Russian project "Atlas of new professions" , several important processes are now taking place in this industry: the amount of data passing through the network is increasing and solutions for processing it are developing, as well as digital solutions are becoming more mobile and "friendly" in relation to the user. This means that if now almost every family has a laptop, and every second inhabitant of the planet uses a smartphone, then in ten years any city dweller will have at least 5-6 connected devices. Accordingly, with the growth of the volume of information, the need for new security systems, methods for filtering and protecting data will grow.

What professions in IT will appear in the future?

I must say that in this section we will list professions that will not only appear, but have already appeared, but will become more and more popular in the coming years. In addition, we chose professions that could potentially use Java. So read and take a closer look - perhaps your future profession will be on this list.

Neural interface designer

A specialist engaged in the development of interfaces compatible with the human nervous system for controlling computers, home and industrial robots, taking into account the psychology and physiology of users. Now neural interfaces are used mainly for entertainment, but in the future, with the help of neural interfaces, it will be possible to control various complex devices or even communicate without words with other people.

IT evangelist

A profession at the intersection of creativity and technology. An IT evangelist is a specialist in communication with end users of IT products and promotion of new solutions to groups that are conservative in relation to advanced technologies. He teaches people to use new programs and services to reduce the digital divide among the population.

IT auditor

A professional with a specialization in software development. Auditors of complex IT systems that process data and make decisions based on it, errors or hacking of which potentially carry high risks. Security audit of the software of these systems, including the process of its development and the qualifications of developers.

Big Data Model Developer

A specialist who designs systems for collecting and processing large amounts of data received via the Internet, develops assembly interfaces and the analytical models themselves. In Russia, Ukraine and Belarus, vacancies in this specialty are already opening, although so far the demand is not very high.

Augmented reality travel builder

The development of augmented reality will allow the population of the future to get more pleasure from entertainment. The augmented reality travel builder will take customers on a journey. This job will require writing, designing and creating augmented reality and, most importantly, personalizing next generation stories.

Internet of Things Expert

The Internet of Things has been developing rapidly in recent years. It is most commonly used for energy monitoring and material usage using smart technology, security management, and business process automation.

Data Detective

We currently leave huge amounts of data online and in the near future companies will need detectives to analyze it all and make recommendations based on their findings. Data detectives will be required to identify and investigate datasets from multiple sources, discover new data sources, mix, compare and analyze datasets from multiple sources, and write reports and present their findings to the company.

Cyber ​​disaster predictor

In today's world, it is becoming increasingly important to understand and predict cyber conditions in the future. Governments, industries, societies and individuals will need to protect themselves and become more resilient. The cyber security forecaster will need to monitor, detect and predict cyber threats and predict their consequences. These people will also need to map cyber uncertainties, make predictions to prepare for them.

Music neural network developer

The development of musical neural networks promises to transfer a whole range of technical tasks to the computer: music processing, arranging, mastering and styling. The basic tasks of developers of musical neural networks are closer to the tasks of colleagues from the IT field than to the tasks of musicians. The developer needs to teach the machine elementary musical skills, and not become a virtuoso himself. Therefore, a career as a developer of musical neural networks will require, first of all, a high-quality IT education. Concluding this text, we invite readers to talk about what kind of work they see themselves in 10 years from now and what they think will happen to the field of development in the coming years. We are waiting for your comments ;)Java in the professions of the future: where programming can come in handy in 10 years - 3
