According to a report by the British BBC on September 14th, Boston Consulting Group said that by 2025, about 25% of work will be replaced by intelligent software or robots. Another Oxford University study also shows that in the UK, 35% of existing jobs will face unemployment risks due to automation in the next 20 years.
The report said that office workers who deal with repetitive matters throughout the day are the easiest to replace with robots. The following are the five jobs that the BBC has compiled to be the easiest to replace in the future with artificial intelligence.
Since the launch of Uber, the car service application (App), taxi drivers in many big cities around the world are threatened.
In addition, the amazing speed of the driverless car has also accelerated the risk of taxi driving being eliminated. Google’s driverless technology has been a leader in the field. Driverless cars developed by Google are expected to be available to consumers on the market within two to three years.
More and more manufacturing industries are replacing labor with robots. The world’s first robot factory is located in Dongguan, China, and the company is trying to replace 90% of the workforce with robots. Foxconn, which manufactures for the Apple iPhone, plans to replace 30% of its workers with robots in the next five years.
Recently, Forbes’ earnings and the Associated Press’s sports news were all done by robots. Quill, a software developed by Narrative Science, is able to select facts and major trends from the data and summarize them into a story in a narrative. According to Kristian Hammond, chief scientist at Narrative Science, 90% of the news will be done by robots within 15 years. But this does not mean that 90% of journalists must leave, but these reporters do not need to rely on data to generate news, and those things that are clearly defined and do not need to be explained will be left to the machine.
Robots can process huge amounts of data to find possible ways to treat a disease. IBM’s supercomputer is working with a number of hospitals in the United States to find the best way to treat cancer. IBM’s vision software helps early detection of skin cancer. For some operations, robots process much faster than humans, such as the laparoscopic surgery of the kidneys, and the robot can sew blood vessels to improve the success rate of surgery.
