Infographic — Robotics and Your Job

Robotics and jobs graphic

(World Economic Forum, Statista)

29 September 2018. Robotics is one of the hottest research and business opportunities, one we’ve followed on Science & Enterprise since we began, with some of our more recent stories on the subject listed below. When artificial intelligence is added in, however, robotics becomes an even more powerful technology, which can be viewed both as an opportunity and a threat. Our friends at Statista offer data from a report earlier this month by the World Economic Forum showing the kinds of work functions most susceptible to robotic replacement between now and 2022, this weekend’s infographic.

The study indicates 75 million jobs could be eliminated because of robotics between now and 2022, particularly in customer management, accounting, postal services, and assembly plants, while robotics creates another 58 million jobs during that time. If your work involves finding, receiving, and processing information, robotics is already making deep inroads into those jobs, with the prospect of even more robots taking human jobs. But even if your work is in administration, management, coordination, and advising, and where current robotic incursions are lower, growth rates for robotics are among the highest.
