Rise in Robotics Can Cause Job Replacements in the Future
Here's a scary statistic provided by McKinsey & Company - Up to 800 million global workers could be replaced with robots by 2030.
According to an article on newrepublic.com, 2017 was when robots truly branched out and began taking over jobs originally performed by humans. It was also the year that "robot anxiety" became real.
In early March of 2020 when the coronavirus pandemic kicked into gear, A.I. and robotics moved to the next level and did so quickly. Robots are beginning to climb the corporate ladder faster than you might think, according to a current article in the New York Times which calls this robotic process automation.
CNBC reports that it's the segment of the population with bachelor's degrees that will be most affected by R.P.A. Slowly. Still, surely robotics are taking over white-collar jobs in accounting and human resources occupations, and it doesn't stop there.
CNBC went on to say that higher-paying jobs affected by robotics and artificial intelligence will be chemical engineers, political scientists, nuclear technicians, physicists, occupational therapists, and administrative law judges.
I can't help but wonder if a robot or an artificial intelligence tool might take over wacky rock & roll morning radio shows. Can you imagine a radio robot DJ talking about butt cheeks? Would they even know what butt cheeks are? Who knows how long it will take robots to come after our women and precious metals.
