Time of Transition

We are entering a time of transition from the world as we know it with established rules to a new world where the rules have yet to be written. Nobody knows exactly how this will play out as the changes are coming fast and furious. Just think about the fact that a study by IDC titled Data Age 2025 predicts worldwide data creation will grow to an enormous 163 zettabytes (ZB) by 2025. That’s ten times the amount of data produced in 2017. It is exactly this BIG DATA coupled with affordable and very powerful computing capacity that makes Artificial Intelligence a mainstream application. AI is all around us – in our smartphones, in our homes with Echo and Alexa, in our cars, at work. We are surrounded by machines that get smarter every day as we feed them with more information about ourselves and the things we do. They can now predict the traffic for us, write newspaper articles, recognize images, and so-called GAN´s (generative adversarial networks) even create artwork that gets sold at the most prestigious auction houses.

You have come to the best place to learn everything you need and want to know about Artificial Intelligence – one of the key exponential technologies that fundamentally change the way we live, the way we communicate and the way we work.


But where will that lead?

There is lots of speculation about our future – will we have chips embedded under our skin or will we be able to double our life span and potentially live forever? Will robots really take our jobs and if so, which jobs are most endangered and which ones will thrive? Which new jobs are on the horizon? At the end of the day, we will create many of these new jobs ourselves – according to the World Economic Forum, 65% of kids in high school today will end up in jobs that do not exist today. They will invent many of these jobs themselves and help shape the new intersections between man and machine. The 42 Academy will help you to better understand the impact of these disruptions so you can prepare for the Future of Work.

A rapidly transforming job market

The rigid business and organizational models of the past will not survive in a world that is defined by change, agility and mobility. We are not talking about incremental changes here – we are talking about radical new business models that are being created every day and enable whole new ways of doing business. We are moving from products to platforms that are center to whole new ecosystems of partnerships with enhanced functionality and breadth of offering.

Get ready for what is to come

Needless to say, we better get ready for what is to come – we cannot simply sit back and wait for stuff to happen – It is an exciting time to take our destiny in your own hands and get prepared. The 42 Academy will help us to keep building our skills and investing in ourselves – and start our lifelong learning journey. As we said: the new rules have not been written yet and we want to get engaged and be part of the crowd that defines the rules rather than simply play by them. One thing we know however – the recipes that led to our success in the past will not work anymore – we have to be bolder and prepared to break structures that will not work any longer in times of exponential technological growth. We need to learn how to utilize these technologies as enablers and look at the immense possibilities they offer.
