Robot Takeover: Is Your Job at Risk of Automation?

Written by Alison Doyle

 Article from the balance careers

 Are you in danger of losing your job to automation? According to a study by the consulting firm McKinsey & Company, nearly one in three U.S. workers will see some of their tasks or entire jobs taken over by robots and other artificial intelligence by 2030.

 Employers are expected to rely increasingly on computers to do jobs that humans currently do.

 This is because computers are generally less expensive than human employees. They can also help reduce human error, and even perform work beyond human abilities.

 While the idea of losing one’s job is scary, the study emphasizes that most human jobs will change rather than disappear completely. About half of all employees’ tasks could become automated using today’s technology.
