Robots will take 50% of U.S. jobs within about 10 years, report says...


More than half of U.S. jobs could be at “high risk” of automation by the early 2020s, a percentage that’s greater than in Canada, Britain, Germany and Japan, according to a report released Friday.

The analysis, emphasized that its estimates are based on the anticipated capabilities of robotics and artificial intelligence, and that the pace and direction of technological progress are “uncertain.”

It said that in the U.S., 50% of jobs could be at risk of automation, compared with 41% in Canada, 40% in Britain, 45% in Germany and 31% in Japan.

The main reason is not that the U.S. has more jobs in sectors that are universally ripe for automation, the report says; rather, it’s that more U.S. jobs in certain sectors are potentially vulnerable than, say, Canadian jobs in the same sectors.
