Published by Balraj Arpit on

Yes, you read it right that your job may destroyed by automation industry and you and your children may soon be in jeopardy. Global Experts like Thomas Frey have predicted that by 2022, 1 billion jobs will be destroyed worldwide by the automation, and The International Federation of Robotic have predicated that it will create 1 billion jobs by 2020 from the sampling of 15 countries.

David Rotman published  a title ‘How Technology Is Destroying Jobs’ which says Experts suggest that automation and advanced digital technologies are eliminating the need for people in a growing number of jobs. Advanced technologies have created an uncertain future of dismal job opportunities, stagnant income, and worsening inequality. Experts argue that such advancements in computer technology, ranging from improved industrial robotics to automated translation services have resulted in sluggish employment growth over a long period of time. Academic experts from MIT foresee dismal prospects for many types of jobs as these powerful new technologies are increasingly adopted in manufacturing, clerical, and retail work, along with professions such as law, financial services, education, and medicine. Experts believe that rapid technological change has been destroying jobs faster than it is creating them, contributing to the stagnation of median income and the growth of inequality in the US.
