Future Proof - Four Corners Regardless of who wins the Federal election, the major issue facing Australians is the future of work. There are startling and credible predictions that more than five million Australian jobs will simply disappear in the next 15 years, as a result of technology. That's 40% of the jobs that exist in Australia today. Answering that question is only going to get harder as many of the jobs our kids will do haven't been invented yet. "Machine learning and artificial intelligence in particular are actually solving jobs that we thought traditionally were very highly qualified jobs, people like lawyers and doctors and accountants and bankers... There will be winners and losers in some surprising areas as more and more jobs become automated or operated by intelligent computers. It's good news for baristas and personal trainers, but not for real estate agents.

Hoagies' Gifted Education Page Programmers are having a huge discussion about the unethical and illegal things they've been asked to do | Business Insider Flickr/Tim Regan Earlier this week, a post written by programmer and teacher Bill Sourour went viral. It's called "Code I’m Still Ashamed Of." In it he recounts a horrible story of being a young programmer who landed a job building a website for a pharmaceutical company. The whole post is worth a read, but the upshot is he was duped into helping the company skirt drug advertising laws in order to persuade young women to take a particular drug. He later found out the drug was known to worsen depression and at least one young woman committed suicide while taking it. Decades later, he still feels guilty about it, he told Business Insider. Software developers 'kill people' Martin argues in that talk that software developers better figure out how to self-regulate themselves and fast.
