With another year almost in the books, it’s time to look ahead to the future. For example, robots just might be taking over in the future! This Mashable article details nine jobs that could be replaced by robots in 2015, including:
- Hotel concierge
- Sales clerk
Personally, I think the most surprising occupation on this list is teachers. Robots have been performing unskilled jobs such as assembly-line work for some time now and they’re starting to execute more skilled tasks as well. For example, scientists recently built a robotic ping pong player, however, a human already managed to beat it. But… robots still can’t account for the craftiness and innovations that humans posses when it comes to competition.
The underlying message of this article: Make sure you stay up to date in your profession so that you don’t get replaced. And guess what? The new year is a great time to set goals when it comes to learning new skills. Focus on setting time aside to better yourself! Get some tips on how to do so here.
Happy New Year!
