AI - the shape of things to come?

This report along with the ONS analysis sheds light on the impact of automation on the jobs market - with a sharp focus on the gender impact and intergenerational effect of AI/Automation across jobs. Interestingly programming and broadcasting activities and TV production are at the lower end of the scale for automation because of the proportion of workers with high skills, compared to repetitive functions amongst other roles. But, of course, automation is just one aspect of the Industrial Revolution 4.0, so watch this space.

Automation could replace 1.5 million jobs, says ONS Some 1.5 million people in England are at high risk of losing their jobs to automation, according to the Office for National Statistics (ONS). It says those most likely to lose to automation are women, with a 70% chance of this happening. Part-timers and the young are the next most at risk. The ONS analysed the jobs of 20 million people in 2017 and found 7.4% of these were at high risk of being replaced.
