THE FUTURE OF WORKWith automation poised to put millions out of work, economists debate if growth can create enough new ones

Since the 1970s, automation has eliminated the jobs of millions of bank tellers, retail cashiers, travel agents, airline front-desk workers and manufacturing employees. With the jobs of truck drivers, airline pilots and even medical doctors now at risk as well, it sometimes feels as if every human job except those of computer coders is destined to disappear. Compass examines the jobs at risk and the forces at work.

Hyperconnectivity. It’s a powerful word that is reshaping our world and how we interact with it, and it is growing more powerful day by day.
 
With each object and each living environment becoming online and connected, part of a global, real-time virtual map, our world is hyperconnected: the physical and virtual world are colliding, coming together and exchanging qualities. This is how autonomous cars will perfectly synchronize their movements on crowded highways or how friends will find one another in a crowd.
