Nerd Talk: Robots Taking Your Job

Find out how likely it is that a robot will replace you.

September 15, 2015

I'm not sure which fate would be worse, robots taking all our jobs and leaving us with nothing to do but squabble (and possibly hump) amongst our rapidly expanding selves (see Wall-E), or just having them straight murder us or make us into their batteries (see Terminator/Matrix). One thing is for sure, we are definitely replacing humans in jobs with automated machinery. That started decades ago, ie Detroit.

The BBC conducted a study to find out how likely you are to lose your job to Bender, clamps or any of the other robots that can do things better than you.
