The rise of the robots

According to a study by Oxford University academics, the rise of the robots is not about to slow anytime soon. Dr.Carl Benedikt Frey of Oxford University’s Programme on the Impacts of Future Technology, and Michael A. Osborne, of Oxford’s Department of Engineering Science, predict that within just a decade or two, humans will be made increasingly superfluous in
nearly half of all jobs in the United States. These jobs will be automated, computerised or otherwise done by our technological children.

In the near future, Frey and Osborne predict that what factory jobs still remain will dwindle further, along with openings for humans as telemarketers, librarians, tax preparers and, yes, even
insurance underwriters.
