The reality of automation is becoming clear – and it’s terrifying. So why is there so little thinking among politicians about those who will be affected?

Carl Benedikt Frey, an automation specialist at the Oxford Martin School, says: “Retail is one industry in which employment is likely to vanish, as it has done in manufacturing, mining and agriculture.” In 2017 an exhaustive report he co-authored showed that 80% of jobs in “transportation, warehousing and logistics” are now susceptible to automation.

BUT; The Conservatives have the Answer, and are working hard at it, Its called "Remove the Poor" I have read somewhere cannot remember where that Tory Cuts are Killing 60 people a Day in the UK, Mostly by Starvation and/or the Cold, Add Skyrocketing Homeless and Falling Life Expectancy and Rising Pension Age .
There will be far fewer people chasing fewer jobs, The Tory answer is simple......... Kill us all of. :angry:

It seems man will be responsible for all of our destruction either through automation/robotics/computerisatiojn or nuclear fall out, especially with nutters in control of the nuclear buttons.

One of our bus services have just introduced contactless bus fares and apps that people can now stop using their loose change to pay their fares. Although the bus still needs a human to drive it! Look out drivers, the driverless bus is being developed as we speak and then lorries, taxis and drones taking over parcel deliveries.....

If the TSB bank fiasco is anything to go by, we are all in trouble.

I predict these jobs to vanish a lot sooner than that.

Technology has been evolving at a white light pace and continues to do so.
