Hollywood likes to paint a bleak version of the future, one where artificial intelligence (AI) becomes sentient and robots take over the world. Don’t let movies scare you though! You needn’t be concerned or worried that robots will take over the world. What you need to worry about is robots taking your job.

Take manufacturing lines for example. What was once done by hand is now done by robots. With technology constantly evolving and machines becoming ever more complex, you can’t but ask yourself the question “will my job be replaced by a robot?” There’s no quick “yes” or “no” answer, because it all depends on what you do. Some jobs have higher odds of being replaced by machines, as the infographic featured below shows.

The infographic above was of no help and you want a quick answer to the question “should I be worried that I’ll be replaced with a machine?” In that case, you need to know about the interactive quiz the BBC published not too long ago. Visit this website, enter your job title, and see how likely/unlikely it is for a robot to take your job. Like this.
