The widespread use and knowledge of the Internet of Things, machine learning and artificial intelligence are now essential tools adopted by businesses around the world. With the raging developments in the field of computing, coding and artificial intelligence play a central role in being future-ready for the jobs of the coming decade. This article lists the ten in-demand jobs by 2030 centred around these skills.
In-demand jobs by 2030
1. Quantum Machine Learning Analyst
Quantum computing has only just been developed and is being used to do breakthrough research in multiple fields. As the use, applicability and improvisations of quantum computing increase through new and better algorithms being developed, new careers will emerge. A Quantum Machine Learning Analyst will be combining quantum information processing and machine learning to create technologies that have never existed before. Modelling quantum algorithms to address specific business problems will be the chief responsibility of the Quantum Machine Learning Analyst. The qualifications for this role finds its roots in STEM-related degrees. At least a postgraduate in Physics, Statistics, Electrical Engineering or Computer Science will be required. This will be one of the most in-demand jobs by 2030.
2. Space pilots, tour guides and architects
Telegraph.co.uk, a British newspaper predicts space travel will be an affordable luxury by 2030. Thus, we will need space pilots, tour guides and architects. “Space tour guides will draw on cosmology, astronomy, space science, geography, history and geology to help passengers get the most out of their journey. While the factual side of the tour is important, space guides also need to be excellent storytellers and imaginers to help inspire their charges and encourage them to experience the true awe of space travel. Regular tour guides will need to undergo a similar level of physical and mental preparation and testing as pilots before each trip”, according to British consultancy, Fast Future.
3. Augmented Reality Journey Builder
This role features the combination of experience, space, place and time in augmented reality to create settings, moods, times, information, tone, characters as well as the applications of favourites themes, games, music and cinematic style to appeal to its users. Thus, the aim of this role is to collaborate with creative artists and engineers to build another worldly experience that people would pay for.
4. Cybercity Analysts
Cybercity analysts ensure the steady flow of “healthy” data around our cities – including biodata, citizen data and asset data – by ensuring all technical and transmission equipment functions without being compromised.
5. Artificial Intelligence Business Development Manager
An artificial intelligence business development manager will be a team player who has had exposure to artificial intelligence, machine learning and cloud computing platforms. This role will need product management experience to increase the engagement of customers and partners with the AI-based product.
6. Master of Edge Computing
With increased connectivity, organisations are experiencing escalating data volumes, requiring unlimited storage and processing capacity. Moreover, real-time decision-making is increasingly becoming a business must-have. Edge computing unleashes the potential of connected hardware devices by decentralizing them to become the data centre themselves. It provides an isolated node to the object, which has a stand-alone processing and storage system and built-in analytic capabilities.
7. Data Detective
Inspired by Sherlock Holmes to be the next detective? Other than having an uber-cool job title, the main responsibility of this role is to sleuth around to find the solutions within data produced by new technologies such as the Internet of Things.
8. Human-machine Teaming Manager
A human-machine teaming manager combines the strengths of robots/AI software (accuracy, endurance, computation, speed, etc.) with the strengths of humans (cognition, judgment, empathy, versatility, etc.) in a joint environment for common business goals.
9. Waste Data Handler
A waste data handler will be responsible for ethically and responsibly destroying corporate data for security purposes.
10. Applications Software Developer
Applications software developers create programs that allow people to perform specific tasks on a computer or computer-like device. There could be around 947,000 applications software developer positions in the U.S. by 2030, up from 718,000 in 2014. The median wage for applications software developers last year was $102,280. This position typically requires a bachelor’s degree.
“Primary aim of quantum artificial intelligence is to improve human freedom, dignity, equality, security, and total well-being.Amit Ray, Compassionate Artificial Intelligence: Frameworks and Algorithms
To conclude, our children will need to choose careers to balance their passions in tandem with the effect their roles will have on society. The quote by Amit Ray encompasses the element of humanity which needs to be practised, even in the technology we build. Thus, the ten in-demand jobs by 2030 can progress development to an unprecedented level. However, the first step is through mastering coding and artificial intelligence.
