Trends in Growth Areas

The Economist luncheon podcast offered an
interesting projection on where jobs will
emerge
in the future.

Three innovation areas and unexpected
developments I picked up from the discussion
were:

1.  America is emerging as a natural resource
rich area for “shale gas”.  The huge quantity
of accessible reserves will mean it will be the
Saudi Arabia of the 2030s.
Many of the polymer and petrochemical based
industries that were off-shored over the last couple
of decades will re-emerge in continental America.

2.  Fields of endeavors, industries that combine
with and manage artificial intelligence will grow
and fields that try to compete will face dire
straits.  Creative ways of using AI, augmenting
science and engineering with AI and tactically
using AI is essential.  1 

3.  An evolution of management hidden in
plain sight that incorporates complex human
relationships and advocacy combined with
meritocracy is emerging.  This calls for a
new breed of networking called committed
networking2

    The article “counting every moment” in the Quarterly
    technology forum of the Economist offers a glimpse
    into applying Artificial Intelligence AI to amplify
    gains from various activities.
