Digital Economy: Digital skills

As cloud computing, network connectivity, and commodity hardware have reduced barriers to the technical infrastructure of the digital economy, talent and skills have emerged as the most sought after fuel for innovation. But work such as software development or data science can in theory be delivered from anywhere, geography still seems to influence the market for digital skills, with hubs such as Silicon Valley acting as beacons for talent. On this month’s episode, we discuss the dynamics of digital skills, exploring how digitisation itself is shaping their supply and demand. Host Pete Swabey is joined by Joysy John, director of education at UK innovation foundation Nesta, and Chris Johnson, CEO and co-founder of talent acquisition platform Uncubed.
