In 2025, you can apply for the job of space tour guide, according to a report released in August by The Future Laboratory and Microsoft.
The report claims that 65 percent of today’s students will be doing jobs that don’t exist yet at the moment due to “technological change, economic turbulence, and societal transformations”.
“A new wave of automation, with the advent of true artificial intelligence, robots, and driverless cars, threatens the future of traditional jobs, from truck drivers to lawyers and bankers,” the report reads. “But, by 2025, this same technological revolution will open up inspiring and exciting new career opportunities in sectors that are only in their infancy today.”
The report predicts that space tour guides, among other jobs, would be needed in 2025 as earth orbit trip will become a popular choice for “intrepid travellers”.
Other jobs that the report predicts will employ current students include virtual habitat designer, ethical technology advocate, digital cultural commentator, sustainable power innovator, and more.
