The changes in the office setting will be
similar to those in the home. Computers will control more things
and have more power. Businesses will utilize this to be more productive.
Computers will take over more jobs.
The biggest change will be in where people work.
Actually traveling to a physical office will be unneeded. Faster networks
will allow high quality instantaneous video. People will work from
the home and be able to accomplish everything they did before. There
will still be a need to travel to work for face to face meetings, but this
will be a rarity. Personally meeting with people will still be necessary
to understand and connect with other people.
Technology will play a greater role in the office
as it becomes more powerful. Humans will still do the creative thinking,
but will play a smaller role in manual labor tasks. Thoughtless tasks
will be almost solely the computer's duty.
