10 Jobs Robots Will Soon Take Over and How!

Now is the time to prepare for the future as the Robots are finally here with us.

With the growing success of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Robotics Technology eminent job crisis looms as robots will take over most of the jobs being done by humans. Reports has it that the banking sector will be one of the most hit as robots can do about 30% of the work at banks. In addition to banking jobs, other jobs that are threatened by the rapid growing robotics and AI technology are:

  1. Bank Tellers And Representatives: First it was the ATM that reduced human banking jobs, then followed by smartphone apps. The remaining human-based teller and representative banking jobs will soon be taken away by robots and Artificial Intelligence (AI) according to reports CNBC. AI won’t just be able to conduct cash transactions, it will be able to open accounts and process loans at a fraction of the cost and time it takes for human employees. “The ATM of tomorrow is going to replace the teller,” Andy Mattes, CEO of financial software company Diebold told the network. “It can do approximately 90% of what the human being can do, and it’s going to be your branch in a box.”Image result for robot teller

  2. Insurance Underwriters And Claims Representatives: The effects of automation on the insurance industry are already being felt. In Japan, Fukoku Mutual Life Insurance has recently replaced 30 of its medical insurance claims reps with an AI system based on IBM’s Watson Explore, reports the Guardian. The software can “analyze and interpret all of your data, including unstructured text, images, audio, and video” better and faster than a human can, and can “drastically reduce” the time needed to calculate Fukoku Mutual’s payouts, according to a company representative.Image result for robot teller

  3. Financial Analysts: First it was the ATM that ate into human banking jobs, then the smartphone app. It’s likely that many of the remaining human-based teller and representative banking jobs will be finished off by AI, reports CNBC. AI won’t just be able to conduct cash transactions, it will be able to open accounts and process loans at a fraction of the cost and time it takes for human employees. “The ATM of tomorrow is going to replace the teller,” Andy Mattes, CEO of financial software company Diebold told the network. “It can do approximately 90% of what the human being can do, and it’s going to be your branch in a box.”

  4. Construction Worker: Manual labor jobs are also under threat by automation. Robotic bricklayers will soon be introduced to construction sites that enable the machines to replace two to three human workers each, reports Technology Review. SAM (Semi-Automated Mason) can lay up to 1,200 bricks a day, compared to the 300 to 500 a human can do. While a human is still required to work with SAM to complete the more nuanced tasks, the use of SAM reduces the need for the three other bricklayers it would take to do the same job. Other on-site construction jobs such as crane operators and bulldozer drivers can also expect to see their positions filled by AI-controlled machines in the next decade.Image result for robot construction workers

  5. Inventory and Stock Managers: Soon robots will take over the job of stocking and packing goods and items previously done by humans as they become more advanced. Inventory Robots can cost retailers tens of thousands up front but can save hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars over the long run because, unlike humans, robots don’t get sick, need holidays, require a 401(k) payment, and can be retrained in an instant with a simple software update.Iam_Robotics_2_Web

  6. Farmers: Farmers are being replaced gradually by robots that can do everything from milk cows to pull lettuce. A family-owned dairy farm in Germany is one of the first to install Voluntary Milking System robots that allow cows to walk up to the machines at their leisure when they want to be milked, reports Modern Farmer. And more than 1 million of the U.S.’s farmhands could see their jobs replaced by intelligent machines that do everything from weed cabbage patches to pick apples, reports Quartz.

  7. Taxi Drivers: In the next 10 years, cities across the world will have fleets of self-driving taxis. Uber is testing such vehicles and Singapore is the first country to already put up to a dozen on the roads.ubervolvo.jpg

  8. Journalists:  Writing does not in any way pose a threat to Artificial Intelligence. In 2014, the Associated Press began to use intelligent software to write quarterly earnings reports. Up to 3,000 reports are being written by AI every quarter, the Verge reported. Future site contents can be carried out without any human involvement.robot1

  9. Movie Stars: The advanced Computer Generated Imagery (CGI) techniques commonly used to refer to 3D computer graphics for creating scenes that allow even deceased actors to be resurrected from the dead–the most notable example being Peter Cushing’s Grand Moff Tarkin CGI resurrection in Rogue One: a Star Wars Story. The CGI is used for creating special effects in films and television.

  10. Manufacturing Workers: The human manufacturing workforce will be depleted by robots in the near future. As a matter of fact, it’s already happening. Foxconn, the manufacturer who makes everything from iPhones to Xboxes, recently replaced 60,000 workers with robots. Economists have issued dire warnings about how automation will affect the job market, with one report, from consultants Deloitte in partnership with Oxford University, suggesting that 35% of jobs were at risk over the next 20 years. Former McDonald’s chief executive Ed Rensi recently told the US’s Fox Business programme a minimum-wage increase to $15 an hour would make companies consider robot workers. “It’s cheaper to buy a $35,000 robotic arm than it is to hire an employee who is inefficient, making $15 an hour bagging French fries,” he said.Workers at a Foxconn factory
