There’s more and more talk these days about robots and artificial intelligence shoving aside their human counterparts and taking their jobs.
There’s no precise timeline as to when this job apocalypse will take place but several studies, including a 2017 study released by the McKinsey Global Institute, have predicted that A.I. and robotics might replace up to 30% of human jobs by 2030. This means 800 million freshly unemployed individuals.
Another study on the fate of human workers, this time carried out by Oxford University researchers Carl Frey and Michael Osborne, found that “47% of U.S. workers have a high probability of seeing their jobs automated over the next 20 years.”
To better understand the impact that the shift to A.I. has on human employment, check out these 9 jobs that experts believe will be stolen by robots sometime in the future, with certain business sectors and industries already feeling the effects of automation.
