Discover your odds of being replaced by a robot

Via TheNextWeb reports on a website which will provide the statistical probability of your job being replaced by a robot. Aptly called WillRobotsTakeMyJob breaks down each profession by “Automation Risk Level”, Projected Growth (by 2024), Median Annual Wage and current estimate of number of people in the field. Automation risk levels vary from “Totally Safe” (Systems Analysts, Financial sales agents) to “You are doomed” (drivers, waiters, cashiers). There are some surprises, with computer programmers coming in at 48% (“Start worrying”).

Several others have already been convicted under the Swiss law for comments they had made, this man is the first to be convicted for liking the comments. Wow.
