In the machine-2-machine future, what will your children do for a job?

“Some 65% of primary-school children will work in jobs that don’t exist yet,” says Dave Maunsell, the managing director of Accenture Digital, the global technology services company.

The pace of technology and the role of intelligent, networked machines means jobs as we know them will disappear – and new ones arise.

Dave spoke recently The Briefing held at AUT University. In the second of this video series we asked him the obvious question: what exactly are you telling your children, Dave?
