How Technology Will Create These Jobs In The Future

Fifteen years ago, people would have looked at you sideways if you told them you were a data scientist, driverless car engineer, or drone operator. It’s hard to believe, but in 2006 those industries didn’t really exist. By 2030, automation is expected to hit a midpoint, “something like 16 percent of occupations would have been automated—and there would be impact and dislocation as a result of these technologies.” Artificial Intelligence, spatial computing (augmented and virtual reality), brain-computer interfaces, are all set to substitute labor or complement it in some way. That being said, it’s not the end of human jobs.

1. Hologram Stylist

Hologram Stylist is a job that exists today. At Metastage, a studio that captures humans using volumetric video, has an on set wardrobe and makeup specialist. When Metastage captured Ashley Graham for the New York Times, their team worked closely with Graham’s team “to make sure the right decisions were being made for volcap.” Certain styling decisions were made: “No super-skinny stiletto heels, for example, and hair needed to be contained to a unified shape, as small flyaway strands are confusing to the capture system.” At Metastage, “the studio has its own stylist, Harmony Arnold, who knows how to keep the algorithms from getting angry. When Ashley emerged with her hair styled down, it was deemed “risky,” and Harmony helped restyle it into something pulled back.”

2. Virtual Couture Designer

About the Role:This person will be responsible for creating innovative virtual couture. We’re looking for someone who enjoys fashion and working in a team to create beautiful, digital fashion design.

3. Autonomous Car Licensed Specialist

Today, autonomous vehicle drivers are required to have a special license (even if they are not driving). If you’ve ever had the chance to ride an Olli autonomous shuttle, you might know that the company rep that rides around in the shuttle is an engineer and has to have a special license permit to “operate” the autonomous vehicle in case it needs to change its autonomous direction for one reason or another. The Olli travels on mapped, pre-planned routes, but sometimes a human needs to step in and steer things while it becomes more intelligent, and its spatial reasoning increases.

4. Augmented Reality Life Designer

About the Role: This person will work with individual clients to design their augmented reality life of choice. This person must be people-oriented as well as an expert in augmented reality applications and social media.
