Automation, skill-technology and the future of work
Automation and the future of jobs: Assessing future of jobs and automation risk indexes in the Norwegian context. A central question is; How do the jobs and specific job tasks become revitalized as a response to automation? Re-skilling technology: Remote, convenient (or proximate), and simulated How can the re-skilling technology enhance potential of lifelong learning by making learning more remote, and more proximate to the demand for re-skilling? We assess how re-skilling technology can realize simulated and game-based learning by using VR. In this way, the learning can replicate potential work place problems that will occur in which the user/employee have to respond to and react. This is widely used in the health sector and education sector in Norway, but less so in other sectors. A New Way of Thinking Lifelong learning in Norway? Here we assess how education technology may have made traditional formal education obsolete by replacing it with continuously available skills. We also identify and address how education technology makes new opportunities to renew the skill system in Norway. The current system may impose high costs in utilizing technology-based re-skilling because the supply is not efficient enough in facing upcoming future demand of re-skilling in the Norwegian labour market. The new re-skilling technologies provide opportunities to re-organization of the education system; some important issues are how to better finance and document re-skilling to increase incentives of all stakeholders.
