Current Trend on Technology

Disruptive technologies are currently changing the game in every corner of industries and even communities on the planet.  It is predicted that in the year 2035, 65 different types of professions will disappear due to the popular usage of Artificial Intelligence and robotics.


Global connectivity, smart machines, and new media are just some of the drivers reshaping how we think about work, what constitutes work, and how we learn and develop the skills to work in the future. The concept of a “100 year life” becoming the norm, and the majority of that spent studying and working, means that learning will be a lot more important, and different, for the next generations. Most people will have at least 6 different careers, requiring fundamental reeducating, whilst the relentless speed of innovation will constantly demand new skills and knowledge to keep pace, let alone an edge.



Industry 4.0 is a name for the current trend of automation and data exchange in manufacturing technologies. It includes cyber-physical systems, the Internet of things, cloud computing and cognitive computing. Industry 4.0 is commonly referred to as the fourth industrial revolution.


The technological and non-technological innovations as a result of the digitalization have led to an explosion of new business model types in the market, which in turn led to new user behavior, new devices, new tastes and new target groups - and no end to this (r)evolution is yet to be seen. Proponents of the term claim Industry 4.0 will affect many areas, most notably Workers' education and skills

Industry 4.O will require the world to produce a new kind of worker—a knowledge worker! Tomorrow’s industry leaders and managers must possess new skill sets to adapt, to manage, and to take advantage of Industry 4.0. They must be critical thinkers, problem solvers, innovators, communicators, and provide value driven leadership. They must be able to see beyond the technology at play to the implications for society for the use of that technology. These traits define the knowledge worker.


In order to achieve success in the digital transformation process, it is necessary to prepare the technology and human development roadmap in the most accurate way. In today’s business, Industry 4.0 is driven by digital transformation in vertical/horizontal value chains and product/service offerings of the companies


In order to develop HDI of Indonesia human resources we need to observe what is currently happening that might need adjusted to the future competency Robotic, Artificial Intellegence, IoT, cloud computing, Biotechnology, Augmented reality, Nano materials, 3D printing,  are  currently disruptive at the core of industry 4.0. The relationship between technological innovation and social initiated change and the impact on individual competences in a dynamic sector is needed to observed carefully with a proper scenario model for competences to combine individual competences with a scenario approach to investigate how competences are important to the sector shift or need to be enhanced in the future


These disruptive technologies of Industr 4.0 is predicted would generate potental impact of economic about 30-38 Trillion USD by the year of 2025. To be able to use, master and invent technology , every 21st century students should have the opportunity to learn and make use of technology. This is to ensure that they will not get replaced by technology—in the occupational sense, but will become the ones who utilize and invent technology instead.
