My name is Dr. Dimitrios Salampasis. I am the Director for the Master of Financial Technologies and Lecturer of FinTech Innovation and Entrepreneurship at the Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne, Australia. This lecture focuses on the jobs of the future the changing nature, organization and delivery of work and we're going to explore the case of FinTech.
In the nature of work, we observe numerous changing patterns, starting from digitalization, automation, and hyper-connectivity. This of course, is also linked to the technological advancements, primarily in light of artificial intelligence, blockchain technology, Internet of things, and quantum computing. Furthermore, we observe changing forms of employment, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic, where people worked off-site and worked remotely. Moreover, we also observed changing career models and patterns where we see people wanting more freedom, people wanting less control. At the same time, we see changing organizational structures of companies moving even directly and fully online. Or even companies operating through decentralized architectural designs, such as Decentralized Autonomous Organization. Finally, we see technology creating new skills and opportunities that didn't even exist before.
This visual captures the new concept of jobs. It encapsulates and highlights a shift from traditional work and employment towards flexible, decentralized and knowledge-based patterns. This particular shift, the movement of work patterns, enables and embeds socio-emotional changes and digital challenges. The flexible, decentralized knowledge base patterns are branched into three key components. Self-fulfillment, entrepreneurial and intrapreneurial aptitude, and self-control.
