(Worthy News) - A significant number of jobs could be completed by robots as early as 2030, according to a new report published Tuesday by the McKinsey Global Institute. The transition into a heavily automated workplace wouldn't arrive right away, but it may affect up to 375 million workers globally.
The workforce has already begun to accommodate technological advancements, with robotics being no exception to this. Statistics have proven the potential benefits to automated workers, including its positive effects on the global economy. McKinsey suggested that physical laborers are most at risk of losing their positions with the rise of automation, which includes food preppers and machine operators, among other similar workers.
Individuals that work in data collection and processing would also likely need to be wary of losing their job to a robot. [ Source: International Business Times (Read More...) ]
