How do you see people, tech and data changing the work of the future?
500 + Ways JCU Prepares You for the Work of the Future
The world-renowned Cleveland Clinic offers an example of JCU alums creating value in a changing world of work. More than 500 JCU graduates from 32 academic majors, minors and concentration help to advance this global center of medical research and care.
“There’s room for a lot of different skill areas in this economy and each economy to follow,”
Dr. Alan Miciak, President, John Carroll University
Be Ready for the Work of the Future
John Carroll offers you more than 70 majors, minors and concentrations. Our students combine areas of study and experiential learning to prepare for emerging careers — ahead of their peers at other schools. A report by Dell Technologies and the Institute for The Future (IFTF) finds that 85% of the jobs that will exist in 2030 haven't even been invented yet.
Key Work of the Future Concepts
New technologies touch nearly every academic major and career path, starting with the collection and application of data. While you may imagine a career in marketing, education, business, nursing or law, your day-to-day routines will intersect with these new tools and insights.
“For the foreseeable future, therefore, the most promising uses of artificial intelligence will not involve computers replacing people, but rather, people and computers working together—as “superminds”—to do both cognitive and physical tasks that could not be done before.”
— an umbrella term for machines capable of perception, logic, learning
— employs algorithms that learn from data to make predictions or decisions, gaining in accuracy over time and with more and better data inputs
— uses many layered neural networks to build algorithms that draw upon vast seas of data to train itself toward more accurate workflows, processes, choices
— applies the technology of distributed ledger and through its decentralized and cryptographic components, removes the requirement of third parties to confirm financial and other transactions
Internet of Things
— a web of devices, sensors and tools that narrow the gap between digital and physical spheres, connecting large communities and cities
— an emerging field of science that can harness microorganisms to clean pollutants from our water, soil and air; or modify staple foods such as rice to produce vitamin A containing beta-carotene; or engineer yeast to produce rose oil as an eco-friendly and sustainable substitute for real roses in perfumes
