Computers are after your job
Computers will one day threaten the careers of professionals like doctors and lawyers.
“You are in peril,” said Farhad Manjoo in Slate.com. A robot is coming for your career. As computers advance, they are threatening the careers of professionals like doctors, lawyers, pharmacists, and writers. Even if your job requires “deep intellectual problem-solving skills,” any sort of repetitive task means “there’s a fair chance” you’ll be replaced by a computer.
Take pharmacists. They are seen as occupying a growth profession, because we’ll need more drugs as the nation ages. But pharmacists themselves have a grimmer view, because they increasingly oversee robots that can “look up patient records, count out pills, label vials, and bill insurance companies” faster, more accurately, and more cheaply than humans can.
The bottom line: “The robot that works next to you today will send you to the unemployment line tomorrow.”
