Robots and intelligent machines threaten to replace workers in industries from finance to retail to haulage, with BOE Chief Economist Andrew Haldane estimating in 2015 that 15 million British jobs and 80 million in the U.S. could be lost to automation.
As automation technologies such as machine learning and robotics play an increasingly great role in everyday life, their potential effect on the workplace has become a major focus of research and public concern. The discussion tends toward a Manichean guessing game: which jobs will or won’t be replaced by machines.
This article examines how technology is changing the workplace.
