Jobs for example in healthcare. The robots also perform

Jobs that
involve genuine creativity, such as being an artist, being a scientist,
developing a new business strategy have a much lower chance of being swallowed
up by automation as a computer can’t be creative. On the other hand, it could
be that in 20 years a computer will be the most creative entity on the planet.
There are already computers that can paint original works of art. Who knows
what will happen in the next 20 to 30 years, who knows what robots will be able
to do.

The fact that
technological change can cause short-term job losses has now been accepted. The
view that it can lead to lasting increases in unemployment has been divided
into people who think robots will be helpful and people who don’t. Optimists think
that innovation will be harmful to jobs in the short term, but have the opinion
that innovative technologies will be helpful to almost everybody in the long
term, whereas pessimists have the opinion that at least in some occasions, new
technologies will thoroughly limit the amount of jobs that will be available to
the majority of the Earth’s population.

 In the 21st century, robots are
beginning to perform roles not just in manufacturing, but in the service sector
for example in healthcare. The robots also perform these jobs to a much higher
standard than a human could be capable to. Research has found that far more
jobs are at risk in the US than compared to other major producing countries
around the world 30 percent of UK jobs, 17 percent in Germany and 21 percent in
Japan.

In the 20th
century there was far less job loss than there is now this is because there
were far fewer robots and the limited robots that there were could not do
anything of significance and so were redundant to use on a large scale as they
couldn’t do any job better than a human can. Surely this means that Robots are
the cause of job loss because when robots are introduced the jobs that are at
risk increase dramatically. It has found that people who are in jobs which pay
less than $20 per hour have the highest chance of being unemployed and having
their jobs being filled by robots in the next few years. However, for workers
who earn more than $20 have only a 31 percent chance of finding themselves
unemployed. An interesting fact is that people paid $40 an hour have only a 4
percent chance of robots taking over. Most workers in the UK work in transportation and storage,
retail, manufacturing which are all jobs which have a high chance of automation
in the very near future
