Robots could take the jobs of one in three working aged men by 2050, according to a new study that describes its findings as'catastrophic'. Unskilled, low-wage jobs of men between 25 and 54 will be the first to be replaced, says the Washington-based think tank behind the report. The rate of unemployment in the US could reach 50 per cent for individuals of a certain demographic such as young African American males, researchers warned. Last year a report found that as many as 800 million workers could be replaced by machines in just 13 years. Such statistics make worrying news for workers around the world whose jobs may be at similar risk from the rise of intelligent machines.
While millions of people fearing a robot run world, it is Americans who should worry the most. A new report has found that 38 percent of US jobs will be replaced by robots and artificial intelligence by the early 2030s. The analysis, by accountancy giant PwC, has also revealed that it is financials service jobs that are at most risk of a robot takeover - 61 percent could be replaced by machines. While millions of people fearing a robot run world – it is Americans that should worry the most. PwC found that 4 in 10 jobs in the US are at risk of being replaced by robots.
Researchers have warned that millions of human workers in the US will be replaced by robots over the next few decades, leaving Americans to wonder what areas are at the highest risk. Now, a new map has shown where the most'automatable' jobs are in the nation - and almost every metropolitan area is set to experience a robot takeover. However, it is the low-wage cities like Las Vegas, Nevada, El Paso, Texas and San Bernardino, California that will be hit the hardest – robots are predicted to take more than 60% of jobs in these cities by 2035. A new map has shown where the most'automatable' jobs are in the nation - and almost every metropolitan area is set to experience a robot takeover. The bubble size shows the number of workers employed in the metropolitan areas in December 2016.
They have been taking over manual roles and replacing workers on factory production lines for decades, and it seems that there are fears robots will soon take over even more jobs. A new report has revealed that 70 per cent of Americans fear that their role will soon be taken by a robot. The findings have implications for technology companies working on robots and suggest that there is a need for greater public awareness about automation. The survey, by the Pew Research Center, found widespread anxiety about the general impact of technological change. Three-quarters of Americans say it is at least'somewhat realistic' that robots and computers will eventually perform most of the jobs currently done by people.
