“About 35% of current jobs in the UK are at high risk of computerisation over the following 20 years, according to a study by researchers at Oxford University and Deloitte.”
The BBC published an online tool by Oxford University academics Michael Osborne and Carl Frey, who calculated how susceptible to automation each job is based on nine key skills required to perform it; social perceptiveness, negotiation, persuasion, assisting and caring for others, originality, fine arts, finger dexterity, manual dexterity and the need to work in a cramped work space.
The research was originally carried out using detailed job data from the United States O*NET employment database. The analysis for UK jobs was made by adapting the findings to corresponding occupations in the UK based on Office for National Statistics job classifications.
Through this tool, we found out that for a “customer service worker” it is 91% likely that your job will be automated… But for a “marketing and sales director” it is only 1% likely.
