10 IT-occupations of the future

Humanity needs to create information systems to a new level. A few years ago it was enough to be able, in principle, create any information system, operating with the least number of errors and to automate individual processes of human activity. But it is already capable of intelligent information systems using advanced algorithms replace almost any human activity. And that is why the requirements for the information systems of the future will increase by hundreds of times - she no longer has to be simple to operate, easy to communicate with databases and simple though as that respond to user actions, today technology should be friendly to man, not to distract, not to bother, not to provoke the wrong action, automatically find the problem and make their own decisions. In this article, we will analyze why the creator of a simple code in the near future will no longer enough to "revive" the information system. And at the same time give advice as just a student or a housewife today is beginning to take make the most of future skills.


Who: Architect information systems
A person skilled in a wide range of works with data processing systems. In particular, database designs, develops algorithms action provides an effective treatment of user data stores, monitors the quality of storage, logic, storage and retrieval of information, etc.

What problems are solved: and the logic of the internal algorithms of any information system - is its foundation, without which it simply can not exist. And if before the entire structure responsible for programmers who write the final code is already interaction scheme, the processing of heterogeneous information, the logic of interaction between different units have become so complex that there is no longer dispense with individual experts in this matter

Analogues: The name "architect" tells us that the analogy is found in the building. And if the construction of a conventional dugout or huts on the development of the IT industry raze the architects were not needed, then the next. when the buildings become more and more difficult, above all, there were all new techniques, materials, construction technology - is an architect, designing the overall concept of the building - began to lead the simple builders, masons.

What does a person need? - Simple, user-friendly and efficient interface, ie the system of management, control, and make important decisions. Information system with user friendly interface must be able to build up a dialogue with the end user, to inform him about any problems or errors to make it clear what information it needs input and explain exactly what will get people at the outlet. Speed ​​and correctness of management, ergonomics and just sympathy for what is happening on the screen is becoming increasingly important. It is very important to be able to smooth out the smallest seams between native code and features of thinking typical user.

Do not forget also that the interface of the future - this is not necessarily the image and the pixels. The ability to use informative sounds and smells, taste and body position in space of 5 years will be much more important skills in the profession than skills illustrator.

Analogues: translators from foreign languages ​​to help people understand other people's speech and conduct cooperation in spite of the language barrier. Also, now there are dozens of companies and thousands of experts, one way or another has specialized in the design of interfaces. However, due to the low prestige of these professions basic studying human communication - like pedagogy, sociology and psychology, while their release competencies experts today are not always enough to make friends effectively man and machine at the current level of technology that they try to retouch with graphic illustrations.

What skills should have thought: The ability to perfect communication, especially between the various categories and groups, ability to find common interests and to identify the primary problems.

What problem solve: is now where the world is ruled flashy banner ads and text slogans - will soon be scorched desert, as it is assumed that in the very near future the information will be transmitted to man directly into the brain via neyroimpulsov. Bypassing all intermediaries in the form of graphical interfaces of human language or simply a set of images, the human brain will come once the desired frequency electronic signals and sily.Odnako this simplification and getting rid of "intermediary" does not mean that the information transmitted will not have to optimize and the best way to interpret, depending on the social, gender and cultural layers each user.
