If you have ever wondered whether your job might be taken over by robots one day - here's a web based tool that aims to predict the likelihood of that. I'm not guaranteeing the accuracy, but give it a go! Good news for dancers; the risk of R2D2 replacing you is very low (surely I can't be the only one to be surprised it's even 13%?) whilst taxi drivers are warned that with an 89% probability of automation, the robots are coming!
Using a 2013 report from the University of Oxford, the website provides an estimate of how much any particular job is at risk of disappearing due to "computerisation." "We extracted the jobs and the probability of automation from the report and have made it easy to search for your job. We’ve added some additional information from the Bureau of Labor Statistics to provide some additional information about the jobs," the website's authors note on the site. Just type in a job and the website provides a particular series of employment types. Click on one and get ready for bad news. https://willrobotstakemyjob.com/
