On behalf of Principal Williams, our students, faculty, and staff, I welcome to the School of Science, Computing and Artificial Intelligence. Consider for a moment, that as we enter the 4th Industrial Revolution, The UWI Five Islands Campus’ digital learners are facing a global workforce where only 33% of the world’s demand for employees with technology skills is being met; and the percentage of jobs requiring technology skills will increase to 77% in less than a decade, and where, 65% of students currently in primary school will perform jobs that have not been invented yet. In addition, 47% of any predictable or near predictable jobs are expected to be taken over by machines during the next two decades. To add, co-bots are disrupting China’s manufacturing industry, and AI algorithmic platforms are tearing through the financial markets. According to PwC’s study on the Workforce of the future: The competing forces shaping 2030, “How humans respond to the challenges and opportunities which the megatrends bring will determine the worlds in which the future of work plays out.”
