Revealed: 6 Jobs Humans Are Likely To Lose To Robots!

Because of the constant evolution in technology, you are not far from witnessing a scenario when robots will be replacing humans in the workplace. Humans are likely to lose some types of jobs sooner or later. In future, there is a probability that robots will be more ubiquitous in the workplace than humans.

One of the attributes of robots is that they do not get tired of working and ensure higher productivity. The Guardian reveals that robots will take over 6% of jobs in the United States of America by 2021.

It is also revealed that not only big companies will opt for robots but even SMEs will be equally benefitting from the artificial intelligence.

Therefore, this write-up has come up with all those vulnerable jobs which human will lose to robots:

1.    Paralegals And Lawyers

In future, you will not have to pay hefty fees to lawyers and paralegals for reviewing various documents. For this particular job, there will be software which people will acquire for reviewing any important document. It means that someone graduating in law must also learn to operate the robots.

2.    Drivers

According to a survey by Los Angeles Times, 1.7 million of U.S truckers are likely to lose their job to robots by 2026. In the last Autumn, Google came up with the announcement that it is on its way to producing automated cars. These cars will be used for the safety perspective on the roads which is great news from a passenger’s perspective but the horrible one from the drivers’ point of view.

3.    Assembler Jobs

When you drill down deeper into the future roles of robots, you will come to know that the assemblers of electronic and electrical equipment are going to lose their jobs to robots in future. Robots are used for loading solar wafers accurately into the solar cells, placing bulbs and properly checking the circuit boards.

4.    Postal Jobs

Clerks, mail careers, and postal sorters are going to be hit by automation badly in future. This scenario questions their job security in the upcoming years. From sorting out mails to dispatching them, robots will do everything precisely the way a human can do.

This digitization of mail will also eliminate human error and people will experience quality services when it comes to send or receive mails.

5.    Cooks

There are higher chances that the jobs of cooks will get automated in the coming years. In fact, one of the restaurants in China has already started its journey. It has taken into service a robot which they call Foxbot who does all the noodle-slicing stuff.

Moley Robotics is another example of a robot that does all the cooking for humans. It has the ability to get done with any kind of dish within 30 minutes and it means that no one will need to hire any expensive cook in future.

6.    Polishing And Grinding Jobs

Polishing or grinding workers are also concerned about their job security since they are on the verge of losing their jobs to robots. Though they have been doing this particular work for the longest period of time but they cannot sustain in this role longer since the robots also do the same quality of work. Robots are able to polish or grind any kind of metal, stone, clay and various glass objects.

All these above-mentioned are some prominent jobs which robots will take over in the future. Get ready for a future where there will be more robots in the workplace than humans.
