This Place In Your House Is Most Likely To Kill You
Find Out How Likely It Is That a Robot Will Take Your Specific Job
Will people still be in your line of work in 20 years? Or will they have been replaced by machines by then? NPR has the answer (click here to check out the tool), or at least a very educated guess.
Taking into account factors like how much of your role involves coming up with clever solutions, personally helping others, squeezing into small spaces and negotiating, the authors ofThe Future of Employmenthave assessed nearly every job there is for how necessary humans are in that profession.
The most susceptible to a robot takeover? Telemarketers, who are reportedly 99% likely to be replaced with machines. This isn't that earth-shattering because who hasn't received robo calls by now? Other jobs at high risk: Timing device assemblers and adjusters (a.k.a. digital clock setters, at nearly 99%), bank tellers, drivers and legal secretaries (all at about 98%), cashiers (at about 97%), restaurant cooks and servers (at about 96% and 94%, respectively) and paralegals and legal assistants (at about 95%). And for all you fashion models out there, sorry: There's a 97% chance that robots will instead be walking (marching?) the runways in a couple decades.
The safest careers include social workers, scientists and doctors.
The one plus-side to robots coming for your job: the part-human, part-machine animated graphic NPR delivers along with the bad news.
