How Susceptible are U.S Jobs To Automation?

6-15-ROBOTJOBS_INFOGRAPH-FULL.jpg

The more routine work your job contains, the more susceptible it is to automation, says a 2013 study of 702 American occupations from Oxford Martins 

Oxford University is examining how susceptible jobs are to computerisation, by implementing a novel methodology to estimate the probability of computerisation for 702 detailed occupations, using a Gaussian process classifier. 

Based on these estimates, they examine expected impacts of future computerisation on U.S. labour market outcomes, with the primary objective of analysing the number of jobs at risk and the relationship between an occupation’s probability of computerisation, wages and educational attainment. According to their estimates, about 47 per cent of total US employment is at risk. 

They further provide evidence that wages and educational attainment exhibit a strong negative relationship with an occupation’s probability of computerisation.

If you are sitting at a desk, driving a taxi or carrying a hod, stop for a moment and ask: could a robot or machine do this job better? The answer, unfortunately for you, is probably – Yes!

The debate about whether machines will eliminate the need for human employment is no longer just academic.

Boston Consulting Group predicts that by 2025, up to a quarter of jobs will be replaced by either smart software or robots, while a study from Oxford University has suggested that 35% of existing UK jobs are at risk of automation in the next 20 years.

Office workers who do repetitive jobs such as writing reports or drawing up spreadsheets are easily replaced with software but what other jobs are under threat?
