Jobs in many sectors will disappear with new technology and changing industrial demands. New jobs will also be created. In the power sector, a shift towards more sustainable power generation will shut down coal and power plants and many utility companies will cut jobs. In transportation, autonomous vehicles will replace drivers. In education, free online courses will challenge traditional educational institutions, cutting teaching and administrative roles. 3D printing will make product manufacturers obsolete. And robots will replace humans in general.
