With Digital Technology - What Does Your Future Look Like Online?

With digital technology what does your future look like online?



The article below is anonymous as I could not ascertain the source, other than it came to me in a whatsApp message.

However, as I read the article it shows how the times have changed and continue to change at unprecedented rate from a digital perspective. It also brings certain questions to mind. 

My Question:

For the millions of people around the world, when businesses close their doors and go digital online, what will happen to those employees?

To a certain extent, the question, and more, are answered in the article below.

Does anyone remember Kodak, Stanley Motto? Kodak  was a company based through representation in Jamaica where you could purchase a wide range of all Kodak products and services. A place  where you took your films to get developed/processed.  Imagine then how far we have come!

Software makes it easier each day to use photography, and any digital product, and become creative.

There is no longer any need for processing. The cameras on your mobile phones do an excellent job, which you can digitally share or print.



The Article:

Just 17 years ago, Kodak had 170,000 employees and sold 85% of all photo paper worldwide.  Within just a few years, their business model disappeared and they were bankrupt.  This will happen in a lot of industries in the next 10 years - and most people in those industries don't see it coming.
It will happen with Artificial Intelligence, health, autonomous and electric cars, education, 3D printing, agriculture and jobs.  Software disrupting 90% of traditional industries within 5-10 years.  It is amazing to think that Uber is just a software tool, they don't own any cars, and are now the biggest taxi company in the world.  Airbnb is now the biggest hotel company in the world, although they don't own any properties.
What this does is create opportunities to earn from extra Guest space in your home. I recall in the 70's preferring when I traveled to stay with families I was introduced to for something like a boarding fee.
In the US, young lawyers can’t get jobs.  Because of IBM Watson, you can get legal advice within seconds, with 90% accuracy compared with 70% accuracy when done by humans.  Watson already helps nurses diagnose cancer, 4 time more accurate than human nurses.  Facebook has a pattern recognition software that can recognize faces better than humans.  In 2030, computers will become more intelligent than humans.
Until I read this article I was unaware of IBM Watson. Here is what Wikipedia has to say about it
In 2019 the first self-driving cars will appear.  By 2022 most of us won’t own a car anymore.  You will call a car with your phone, it will show up and drive you to your destination.  Our kids will never get a driver's licence and will never own a car. 
What then will happen to car manufacturers and more importantly what will all these skilled employees do? Lots to think about!
Cities will have 90-95% less cars, parking space can become parks.  We now have one car accident every 60,000 miles, autonomous driving will drop that to 6 million miles and save a million lives each year.  Many car companies could become bankrupt.  Without accidents, insurance will become 100 times cheaper, the car insurance business model will disappear.  Real estate will change, because working while you commute will enable people to live better further away.
If physical jobs are eliminated where would you be commuting to? I know that there was a time when people commuted outside cities and it was inexpensive to live or lease a home. Now? With highways for easier acess in some places I am not sure.
Cities will be less noisy because cars will be electric.  Electricity will be incredibly cheap and clean: Last year, more solar energy was installed worldwide than new fossil installations.  The price for solar will drop so much that coal companies will be out of business by 2025.
With cheap electricity comes cheap and abundant water.   Desalination now only needs 2kWh per cubic meter.  Imagine what will be possible if anyone can have as much clean water as they need, for nearly no cost.
One of the major beneficiaries will be health: There will be companies who will build a medical device called the "Tricorder", that works with your phone, taking your retina scan, your blood sample and when you breathe into it. it analyses 54 biomarkers that will identify nearly any disease.  It will be cheap, so in a few years everyone on this planet will have access to world class medicine, nearly for free. 
From a health perspective, more people will hopefully, be or more accurately diagnosed and the medical profession will be best able to apply correct treatment.  
The future is already here.
We are in interesting times. Are you prepared for the future with digital technology?
Do your begin to see the role you can set yourself up for, in helping others to research and find affordable alternate means of earning a living?
I believe I have provided enough information for you to do some thinking.
