It’s human nature to worry if someone is going to come along who can do your job better than you can, but now you also have to worry about whether a robot might eventually replace you instead.
No, it’s not the plot of an 80s comedy movie – this is based on real research from Oxford University that was conducted last year.
If you work as a teacher or dietitian it appears you have little to worry about because we will definitely need you in the future. Loan officers and receptionists might want to start thinking about a new career though because the research suggest that they have nearly 100% chance of their jobs being automated in the future.
The general rule seems to be that if your job involves creativity or dexterity then your role is fairly secure but the days are numbered for many other vocations.
