TEDx host Charlotte de Brabandt discusses the professions of the future in Lugano.
What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you read "professions of the future"? Robots! Machines! Heartless hardware all around us. We're living in a time of astonishing progress with digital technologies - those that have computer hardware, software and networks at their core.

Rapid and accelerating digitalization is likely to bring economic rather than environmental disruption, stemming from the fact that as computers become more powerful, companies have less need for some kinds of workers.
Technological progress is going to leave some people - perhaps even a lot of people - behind, as it races ahead. The pace of automation has increased with the advent of driverless cars, pilotless drones and automated retail systems such as ATMs, self-order restaurant kiosks and self-service checkouts. These developments emphasize the emergence of autonomous intelligent systems taking the form of humanoid robots.
