Our Future of Skills project for Pearson has created wide-ranging debate both here and in the US on how people should be equipping themselves for the future jobs landscape – including a feature on NBC today with Shilpi Niyogi, Senior Vice President at Pearson.
Today the initial phase of our work for Pearson's Future of Skills project was launched at an event in London chaired by the BBC's Emily Maitlis. Resulting from groundbreaking research that brought together machine learning and human expertise, the project predicts the jobs that will be in demand in 2030 and those that won't.

Interactive data visualisation and gamification will soon follow.
