Experts say that some of the hottest jobs of today will be obsolete by 2025. For example, some believe that lawyers, accountants, actuaries, and consulting engineers and any other professional mainly involved in dealing with information is going to be replaced by algorithms and the AI. The World Economic Forum’s Future of Jobs study predicts that 5 million jobs will be lost before 2020 as artificial intelligence, robotics, nanotechnology and other socio-economic factors replace the need for human workers. The Forrester research predicts that youngest workers will have 12-15 jobs in a lifetime. Dozens of experts suggest that it becomes a norm to go through many careers in a lifetime. The number is usually seven, though at times it is as low as three, and sometimes as high as 10. So the big question is which skills one needs to have to be able to qualify for jobs not yet created and career switches one can't yet foresee.

We discover how the AI already challenge some of the most widespread professions out there. We will zoom in on skills that are likely to become key for employees in coming 5 years.
Some of the meetups will focus on concrete skills for the new reality of the workplace.
