Earlier this year, following an extensive study on AI technology, the McKinsey Global Institute concluded that only a few jobs — around 5% — will be entirely overtaken by physical robots or algorithms, but agreed that — long term — about 45% of all activities are potentially on the chopping block. But it’s not ALL doom and gloom. It appears that the full changeover will take decades to actually happen.
Don’t treat that so authoritatively. Many others have vastly different views on this. McKinsey is being very very conservative in their projections.
If you look back to the Pew report on Robots, AI and Jobs from 2014, the 1200 experts polled came out 50%/50% on the question.
