What tasks are actually on the line and which will be growing as our future robot overlords slowly gather energy? In the next 30 years, advanced robots and automated machines could change the potential space of millions of jobs.
For the future the human race is not bright enough to hold a job in front of the robot of the future and the artificial intelligence that will soon be able to do your job much better than humans. An Oxford study found that around 50% of all jobs would be replaced by robots and that 35% of existing jobs in the UK would be at risk of automation in the next 20 years. In addition, Boston Consulting Group, citing BBC.com, predicts that by 2025, a quarter of jobs will be replaced by smart software or robots.
This affectionate infographic created by Titlemax shows 50 of the most common occupations in the United States and is likely to be replaced by an inhumane automated process in the near future.

If you are a high school teacher, we have very good news for you. Not so much if you are a chef.
According to FastCompany.com, automation, which includes both mechanized robots (humanoid or drone-shaped) and artificially intelligent software programs, is forecast to remove 6% of jobs in the United States over the next five years. And it’s not just low-wage employees who need to be concerned. Highly skilled, knowledge-based employees in several sectors, including legal and accounting may lose their jobs in the next decade. Deloitte estimates that 39% of work in the legal sector could be automated in the next 10 years. Separate studies have concluded that accountants have a 95% chance of losing their jobs in automation in the future.
The impact of automation in the insurance industry is already being felt. In Japan, Fukuoka Mutual Life Insurance recently replaced 30 of its medical insurance claims with an AI system based on IBM’s Watson Explorer, The Guardian reported. The software could “analyze and interpret all of your information, including your structural structures, images, audio and video,” which could be better and faster than a human being and “greatly reduce” the time required to calculate Fukuoka Mutual payments, a representative said.
New technology has created new opportunities and new jobs. The future is not as we know it, but many argue that this impending transfer of workers around the world will not be different well unless the robots really take over. But don’t get too frustrated. Throughout history, new technologies have revolutionized the nature of work, often leaving workers in danger of becoming obsolete.
