A data scientist, Miss Shingai Manjengwa, has urged Federal Government to entrench Data Science and Application
in secondary school teaching curriculum to guide against unemployment in the next decade.
She said that the move would protect the country’s youth from being dormant and irrelevant as a result of changes in future global landscape.
Manjengwa, who is the Chief Executive Officer, Fireside Analytic Incorporated, headquarted in Washington, said that based on the current
changes in the landscape as a result of automation, manual works would be performed by robots in the next decade.
She, therefore, stressed the need for government, as well as private technology organisations to prepare Nigerian youths for the future, saying
“50 per cent of jobs were at risk of automation.
“This may lead to massive unemployment, as most manual jobs would be handled by robots.
“For instance, the trucks driven manually would be driven by robots in the next decade.

Meanwhile, more than 300,000 learners all over the world have keyed into Fireside Science Analytics courses online to straighten their
