Makassar, South Sulawesi -- The Industrial Revolution 4.0 is encouraging disruption in various fields, especially in the skills needed for jobs in future industry. This was conveyed by Director of National Library, Muhammad Syarif Bando, in his presentation at National Movement Safari of South Sulawesi Reading Fondness Acculturation 2019 which took place at Library and Archives Service Office of South Sulawesi Province, Monday (10/14).
"When the industrial revolution 4.0 was born, there were 1.5 billion jobs that would be lost and only 2.1 million jobs would be left in the world. Jobs like being youtuber, data analysis, and various collaborative jobs would be the jobs that emerged in this digital era", said Syarif. Therefore, the education paradigm in Indonesia must change. Not only prioritizes the individual cognitive intelligence achieved through cumlaude predicate, but rather the ability to solve complex problems collaboratively." Industry today does not (only) require intelligence, but also complex problem solving, how do you solve the most complex problems and you cannot do it yourself," he said.
Skills that must be possessed in future industry sequentially after complex problem solving are social skill, process skill, system skill, and finally intelligence known as cognitive abilities.
Librarians in this Industrial Revolution Era 4.0 must also always learn to be able to adapt and be relevant to technological advances.

"Without the ability to transfer knowledge, librarians will be left behind," concluded Syarif.
