Your job as Geographers has 25% chance of automation. You are not safe, start worrying.
Do you think your job as Geographers is safe from automation and Artificial Intelligence? Robots will destroy our jobs – and we’re not ready for it.
For every job created by automation, several more will be eliminated entirely. This disruption will be devastating for jobs like Geographers.
Based on the 2013 study it’s unclear if Geographers will be replaced by robots or artificial intelligence. The job Geographers has Automation Risk Level: not safe, start worrying. (or 25% probability of automation).
Thanks to advances in technology, many jobs that weren’t considered ripe for automation suddenly are… A January 2017 report from the McKinsey Global Institute estimated that roughly half of today’s work activities could be automated by 2055, give or take 20 years.
