Contract for the Web

Contract for the web

The web is one of the most powerful tools we’ve ever had to transform our lives for the better — it transforms people’s lives, enriches society and reduces inequality.

But never before has its power for good been more under threat.

Online scams cost users millions. Cyber bullying is on the rise. Foreign state actors use disinformation to undermine democracy.

We must take action to fight for the #WebWeWant.

The future of work requires a return to apprenticeship

One of the major concerns of the Fourth Industrial Revolution is that artificial intelligence and automation – robots – will eliminate jobs, both blue-collar and white-collar roles across a variety of sectors.

While C-3PO and WALL-E might be good at processing algorithms, they can never replace living, breathing, thinking humans entirely in the workplace. From the auto factory producing a fine-tuned machine where safety and functionality are of utmost importance, to the commodities trading floor where high-value transactions must take into account complex, rapidly changing geopolitical movements, businesses of all kinds still require human intelligence.

And these humans must have bespoke skills and sharp problem-solving and decision-making abilities to fulfill these jobs – jobs that will remain lucrative and dependable, regardless of what robots come along.

The real challenge of the Fourth Industrial Revolution isn’t the robots – it’s that we aren’t properly training and reskilling humans for available jobs.
