The next generation are coming of age just in time for the AI revolution. This is especially true for millennials and now Gen Z, the true digital natives, having grown up in an entirely digital world from birth. There is a huge opportunity for organisations to harness the power of the younger generation to play a guiding role in how AI and tech, are used and developed.
Research suggests that the biggest perceived driver of change to future work is technological innovation. There’s tremendous anxiety about the future workforce and our education systems are struggling to cope with these rapid changes in its requirements. Artificial intelligence is set to change not only what teachers teach, but also how they teach it and, possibly in the future, whether they teach it at all.
Firms that provide mentorships, apprenticeships and entrepreneurships for young people often find that the learning happens both ways, with managers and executive gaining greater exposure to emerging digital behaviours and AI-powered solutions.
