Abstract

This study aims to analyze various discussions for influences on employment by the technologies related to the frequently mentioned Fourth Industrial Revolution and to conduct an exploratory research. For this aim, this paper analyzes and extends the survey related to realization possibility for managements and professionals of ICT sector in Global Agenda Council of World Economic Forum (WEF) in September 2015. Based upon these results, this study further conducts an empirical survey not only over realization possibility but also over its employment impact. For each 23 item of realization possibility, all the respondents (n=169) responded positively to each item to be actualized in 2025. In addition, for each 23 item of the strength of employment impact, most items were responded as decrease of employment but a few items were predicted as expansion of employment. This research has a meaning in providing a clue of empirical survey for employment impact by the Fourth Industrial Revolution in the future.
