Automation is taking possession of our workplaces, and soon it is going to impact the job market, throwing human workers out. The latest study forecasts that one-quarter of jobs in the US are at high risk of being automated.
According to New Brookings report, titled, “Automation and Artificial Intelligence: How machines are affecting people and places”, automation will have a large impact by 2030 on the US employment.
Around 25 per cent of the jobs are predicted to have high exposure to automation. 36 per cent of US employment will experience medium exposure and 39 per cent will experience low exposure. Occupations not requiring a bachelor’s degree are more susceptible to automation than those requiring a four-year degree.
The impact will differ based on industries, geographies, and demographic groups. Men, youth, and under-represented groups will be the most affected among demographic groups.
Although the impact is expected with the coming of technology and AI, the researchers offer recommendations for policymakers, such as embracing the growth and technology, promoting constant learning mindset and facilitate smoother adjustment to mitigate harsh local impacts.
