It is pretty rare that a lawyer is chosen to run a large tech project. But she can do this even though she is not a coder – because the GenAI tech is so intuitive and can be interacted with in natural language not code.

– AI & Machine Learning: This field is evolving beyond just programming; it’s about integrating AI with human values. Future AI experts will not only develop algorithms but also ensure they align with ethical standards.

– Data Science: In the era of big data, interpreting this information becomes crucial. Gen Z data scientists will turn raw data into meaningful narratives, impacting everything from business strategies to public policies.

– Renewable Energy: As we pivot from fossil fuels, renewable energy sources are key. Future professionals in this field will drive innovations in sustainable energy, shaping global energy solutions.

– Health & Biotech: The intersection of technology and biology is redefining medicine. Upcoming experts will work on personalised treatments and breakthroughs in biotechnology, revolutionising healthcare.

– Human-AI Collaboration: The future is about synergy between humans and AI. Professionals will focus on creating intuitive interfaces and ensuring AI applications respect human emotions and ethics.

These areas highlight a future where technology blends with ethical and human-centric approaches.
