Artificial Intelligence has travelled a long way from just being a piece of fictional storyline to a real-life experience. The high-tech concepts like self-driving vehicles or voice recognition virtual assistants in the movies have been crafted into real machines that work the same and are being used by humans in their daily life to manage their regular chores. These wondrous features like being efficient at managing chores and productivity in outputs are placing AI over many human roles in industries and making it an important career domain. According to the World Economic Forum, 85 million jobs like customer executives, will be eliminated, and 97 million new ones, like AI data analysts, will be created by 2025.
The statistics mentioned above would be arousing several questions in your mind like- How would the AI work future look like, how to prepare our kids for the AI Revolution, and many more. Don’t worry, just sit back & lend us your ears for the next few minutes and see how we help you make your kid’s preparation a super-fun ride like experience.
What is Artificial Intelligence?
Before diving into the preparation let’s start short and simple- What is AI? It is a vast branch of computer science associated with building high-tech machines capable of performing tasks that generally require human intelligence like assistance, driving and customer services.
Automatic AI Robots & machines like Alexa, Siri & Face IDs are making human life more comfortable by lessening their work engagement and providing them with time-efficient outcomes in a very personalised manner. This wondrous feature of AI technology is also making it the right fit for industries. Sectors involving large manpower like manufacturing are replacing human workforce with AI robots to receive more favourable outcomes in less input and labour. This change is going all around the globe very drastically, thus leading to the AI Revolution.
Reading the above paragraph might have given you chill and ill thoughts about the AI work future. Relax! AI is also making human efforts more centralised. Now humans need to work for operating and commanding AI technology, requiring 21st century skills and an upgraded mindset. It would be a ‘Human – Robot Collaboration’ work era.
Seeing the bigger picture it is crystal clear that an individual needs to upgrade its skills. This upgradation is not only important for the working employees but also crucial for the young generation and kids too as it is the work future they would end up in.
Kids’s Preparation for The AI Revolution
In the present age, kids are growing in a high-tech AI environment. A little helping hand is needed and they are able to use AI tools and operate robots. They are smart enough to know about the auto video suggestions on YouTube and usage of Google Assistant. Gearing them up with 21st-century skills like coding, programming, robotics and animation will empower them to cope up with the AI Revolution in the working sectors.
Since it requires advancement in the AI learning process of kids there must also be an advancement in the teaching methods of educators. Traditional teaching methods and specifications to native career domains would be a glitch in the matrix. So, there emerges a need for new learning resources capable of accompanying kids in their preparation for the future in an engaging and interesting way.
