Advancing technology will see lots of us


out of jobs as robots get set to take over

WHETHER you work in a shop, office or factory, theres a good chance that a machine or
hi-tech robot could do your job one day.
And that day may come sooner than you
think.
According to a recent Oxford University
study, 35 per cent of UK jobs are at risk of
computerisation in the next 20 years.
Machines wont just do our future jobs better theyll work without needing a break,
salary or sickness pay.
Think that sounds like science fiction? Its
already happening.
Half of all secretarial roles in the UK have
been lost in the past decade, as software is
able to perform the same tasks, while machines that can scan thousands of pre-trial
documents are already threatening the role
of legal assistants.
Having analysed a variety of occupations,
Oxford University researchers Carl Frey and
Michael Osborne suggest that millions of
office roles will become obsolete, with call
centre operatives, office administrators, legal
secretaries and bank clerks all highly likely
to be replaced by computers.
If youre a telephone salesperson you might
want to consider a career change now
theres a 99 per cent chance that a robot will
do your job in the next two decades.

Other high-risk occupations include typist


(98.5 per cent); legal secretary (97.6 per cent);
financial accounts manager (97.6 per cent);
weigher, grader, or sorter (also 97.6 per cent);
sales administrator (97 per cent) and bookkeeper, payroll manager or wages clerk (also
97 per cent).
You dont have to look far to see the rise of
automation.
Self-service machines in shops, airports and
libraries are now commonplace and are set to
become more pervasive.
Amazon uses an army of robots in its warehouses and has invested heavily in drone
technology, with the aim of delivering to
customers within 30 minutes. Google is driving forward with its unmanned cars and has
recently bought eight robotic firms what
for, only time will tell.
James Barrat, author of Our Final Invention: Artificial Intelligence and the End of the
Human Era, believes that a human-looking
Google robot could be very useful.
He said: A high quality personal assistant
wouldnt be just a smartphone itd have a
humanoid body. Why humanoid? So it can
drive your car, use your tools, bounce the
baby, act as your bodyguard if need be.
Robots already run things in some factories.

Changying Precision Technology Company


in China, which makes parts for mobile
phones, recently opened a fully-automated
factory. Every process is operated by computer-controlled robot arms, while unmanned
transport trucks and automated warehouse
equipment shift stock.
Not so long ago, the company employed 650
people. Now there are just 60 people, which
will eventually reduce to 20.
A few humans are required to monitor
production lines and keep an eye on things,
watching operations on-screen from a control
room.
You cant argue with the figures. Since
the robots came, production capacity at the
factory has increased from 8,000 pieces per
person per month to 21,000 pieces, while the
defect rate has dropped by 20 per cent.
The company is not alone.
More than 500 factories in Dongguan city
have invested 430m in automation since
September 2014. As a result some 30,000 jobs
are expected to go.
Several countries, notably the United Arab
Emirates and Japan, have automated train
systems and one day, driverless cars will
transform our roads. Driverless pods have
already been trialled on the streets of Milton

Keynes, while self-driving cars have racked


up over a million miles on US roads. When
automated vehicles become a reality, bus,
truck, taxi and delivery drivers will be out of
work.
Worried about the long-term potential of
your career?
Choose an occupation that calls for profoundly human skills, such as creativity and
problem solving, or that requires empathy
and caring, or a high level of social intelligence or negotiation skills.
Nurses, social workers, psychologists, teachers and therapists are highly unlikely to be
replaced by robots, as human interaction and
empathy is a crucial part of the job.
Creative or problem solving roles, such as
designer, artist or engineer are relatively
safe.
Of course, if you cant beat them you could
always join them.
There is a massive IT skills shortage in the
UK and experts estimate that there will be
750,000 computer science jobs to fill by 2017
yet only 50,000 computer science students
graduated last year.
If you feel like a mindless robot at your job,
chances are youll soon be replaced by one.
