“Between 75 million and 375 million people around the world may need to change occupational categories and acquire new skills by the year 2030.”

“In fact, our results show quite convincingly that the problem is not if there will there be jobs. There is a big question about will the workers today, given their existing skill sets, be qualified to get the jobs that that will be there.”

“In 60 percent of jobs, 30 percent of the activities that people do in that job could be automated. This means that what people do will shift.”
