Strikes, Predictive Analytics, and Transitional Tech Skills Training

It’s a rapidly changing time for humanity. Iberia Airlines strike could have partially been averted with transitional tech skills training.

Predictive analytics could and needs to be utilized rapidly to humanely forecast sectors where technology and robosourcing will displace human labor. Dislacement will only be increasing, and further strikes or unrest will ensue as it has in Spain as a result. However, we could use technology itself to help solve the issue in perpetuity not only as a direct tool but also by increasing training in the very tech skills that are generating the displacement. Predictive analytics could forecast where jobs are most vulnerable, identify potential jobs to be lost at particular times and places of employ, identify skill sets needed currently and in the nearterm, calculate time needed for humans to uptake the new skills relative to time needed by various sectors, and determine best profitability in this strategy and where temporary federal assistance may be helpful.

Other factors could include reducing the work week, demanding lower cost of living as a result of efficiency savings brought about by the usage of technology that is displacing costly human labor, educating the public on the need to acquire new skill sets in an increasingly intelligent environment, and guiding the public that they cannot rely on soft customer service jobs, government subsidies, or not utilizing their valuable minds in a more productive way either on the job or in leisure time.
