Welcome to the October 2017 edition of The Institutional Researcher.
A new report highlight this month is The Future of Skills: Employment in 2030. You will recall that several years ago a similar report was released around how susceptible jobs were to computerisation (Frey & Osbourne). Since the release of this pivotal report there has been an ongoing discussion and speculation around automation technology (‘the robots are coming’ etc.). This new report provides a more nuanced update and is also co-authored by Michael Osbourne, but more impressive is the data visualisation that goes with it. PwC also published a related report titled: Workforce of the future, the competing forces shaping 2030. The report looks into the revolution of the workplace for young people 15 to 24 years old in the face of automation across 35 OECD countries.
It goes without saying that all AAIR folk are looking forward to the upcoming AAIR Forum in Alice Springs, Central Australia. Please don’t hesitate to come and introduce yourselves – we welcome your feedback and ideas for future issues of the newsletter – remember, this is your publication so please tell us what you would like included.
Finally, the Editors are very pleased to include an interview with Sonia Powell, Chief Statistician, UNSW Planning and Performance in this month’s Institutional Researcher’s Corner…
