I believe the amount of robotics is going to explode is everything and everywhere. I believe Elon Musk said the value in Tesla isn’t the vehicle. It’s the sensors and cameras for self driving. Solve that and you can probably get a robot to do everything. Flip a burger, paint a house, weld a pipeline. This is going to change the workforce.

Remote working is growing increasingly mainstream. Location should no longer be a barrier when looking for a job. Employers are progressively becoming more open to remote work options. Multiple clients of mine were let off in Seattle in late March, but had job offers from companies in San Francisco, North Carolina, and elsewhere within four weeks. These organisations' decisions to suddenly accept remote talent is a wise one.

You no longer need to live in expensive areas such as the Bay Area in order to grow your career. As geographic arbitrage becomes easier for ambitious people looking to advance in their careers; imagine earning a Google/Facebook/Amazon/Twitter salary while living in Boise, Bend, or Bozeman.
Your hard-earned money will go farther in these places, but you will no longer be a part of the Silicon Valley rat race.

The "hot market" is changing. It will take a considerable time for travel-related firms to recover. Virtual learning, healthcare, virtual reality, and related businesses will become more prominent. Because venture capitalists tend to follow the crowd, I think there will be a lot more money going into these areas.

I don't think this is a huge change, and it's already occurring.

The adoption of AI at the end user level. For example, daily information workers begin leveraging AI on a regular basis to complete and offload work items.

The decoupling of the production of energy from consumption of energy. The most obvious example would be a BEV replacing an ICE vehicle. Consider also advances in grid-scale storage - not just battery but gravity (pump water uphill during periods of surplus generation, release thru turbine during periods of peak demand) and also advances in localized personal production like rooftop solar. Electricity replaces fossil fuels because there are a hundred ways to make it and increasingly store and transport it. The end of the fossil fuel era is much closer than most people think - not because of regulation but because it’s simply better tech and massively cheaper in the long run.

The next technological paradigm shift is likely to be driven by advances in artificial intelligence (AI).

Without a doubt - Technical Debt! It's a ball and chain that creates an ever increasing drag on any organization, stifles innovation, and prevents transformation.
