Could A Robot Take Your Job?

Bit of fun for a Wednesday, I saw this on the BBC Website and it has a search engine where it predicts if your job could be replaced by a robot in the next 20 years.
My job, a Carpenter Joiner, is fairly likely to be replaced by robots with an apparent 72% chance of it happening. Can't see them doing the kind of carpentry that I do but we'll wait and see! 

Click the link below and then tell me if you're going to be replaced!


What do you think, is more automation a good thing or does it just increase wealth into the rich?

    1. Yeah, but there is something satisfying about doing it yourself, not sure you'd get the same sense from pressing a button!

  3. I have a 1% chance,lol.
    I have a hard time believing a robot can do your job.
    Automation can be good, but when it breaks who can then do it?

    1. I don;t think they could either, I do mainly renovations and old properties so I doubt the robot would want to do it!

  4. I think 100% of the people that come up with these absurd reports don't have a clue and ARE robots themselves, or could easily be replaced by one. There is no way in hell a robot could do the kind of work you and I do.

    1. I know! It's funny to think of one putting a cut roof on or hanging a door in an old opening.

  5. Well if I found the right one to cover my existing job then 89% likelihood. But the new area I am exploring only a 22% likelihood :O).

  7. I don't have a job, being retired. But that doesn't mean some federal robot won't get me some dark night anyway! ;-)
