Jobs of the Future

Did anyone see the recent BIS study on potential jobs today's school kids could have in 20 years time?

Some of them sound pretty interesting - avatar, memory augmentation surgeon, weather modification police

 

I think I'd give the vertical farming a go - I know the BBC reported recently on a vertical farming trial at a British zoo (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/sci/tech/8503498.stm) and it looks quite interesting.

 

What would you choose?

"Memory augmentation surgeon" i.e. brain surgeon.

"Pharmer-armer" i.e. farmer.

"Space pilot"... what? Sooo.... astronaut?

"Flying car designer." i.e. aerospace engineer. (Also, we can build flying cars now.)

 

I would be interested in a list of jobs that won't exist in 20 years.

I meant to include a link to the original press releases - there's a bit more info at the end on what each job would entail http://fastfuture.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/01/FastFuture_Shapeofjobstocome_PR_V11.pdf

 

Be interested to know of any past research which suggests other jobs of the future eg what they thought we'd be doing in 2010.
