Future Employment & Robotics

Several Oxford University academics analyzed a number of worker trait factors that assessed the susceptibility of occupations to be automated by robots. They based their calculations “on nine key skills required to perform it; social perceptiveness, negotiation, persuasion, assisting and caring for others, originality, fine arts, finger dexterity, manual dexterity and the need to work in a cramped work space.”

This article provides the reader an opportunity to input a specific occupation and the algorithm behind the data input will provide a indication as to the likelihood of the occupation being automated in the next two decades. According to the research, 35% of the occupations in the UK will be automated by 2035.
