Today’s Tech Sightings:
A new report from the Internet and Mobile Association of India and market research firm IMRB says India’s Internet users are expected to exceed 400 million by the end of this year, making the Indian Internet market the world’s second-largest after China.
Classes are cropping up all over China to teach kids as young as six how to code. The idea is to help parents prepare their kids for a future job market where machines and robots could take over many jobs currently manned by humans.
The robots are coming. And while many people worry about the jobs machines might displace in the future, new research from smart automation specialist arago shows that IT workers at least welcome automation. The report found up to 85 percent of polled IT workers welcome smart innovation and believe it brings concrete benefits.
