Kids predict the tech of the future, declaring that “technology is the future”
Dell Boomi research reveals robot assistants could help us at work, according to British youngsters
New research commissioned by Dell Boomi – and carried out by OnePoll – surveyed 1,000 12-15 years olds based in the UK to ask them what technologies they think they’ll be using when they enter the workplace in the next 10-15 years. The top five technologies identified were:
Cars that drive themselves (66%)
Robot assistants at work (47%)
Artificial Intelligence (41%)
Virtual offices (38%)
Robot housekeepers (34%)
What’s more, just over a quarter (26%) of youngsters think commercial space travel will be a thing by 2032, and over one in five (22%) think they’ll be using computers linked to their brains.
In fact, over half (52%) of 12-15 year olds think they will be using technology that hasn’t even been invented when they go into the workplace in 10-15 years’ time.
