Places that have specialised in creative work are most likely to prosper in the 21st century
The chance of finding yourself replaced by a robot varies depending on where you work, the field you work in, and how much you earn (factors that are obviously linked)
Across the whole UK, jobs paying less than £30,000 ($48,000) are nearly five times more likely to be lost to automation than jobs paying over £100,000 ($159,000). The finer points of how automation will affect the workplace: jobs in administrative support, transportation, sales and services, construction, and manufacturing as among the most high-risk from technology.
Meanwhile, jobs in sectors like financial services, senior management, engineering, law, science, education, and the arts and media are at the least risk of being roboticized. That broadly echoes and reflects where automated systems are at now: great at repetitive drudgery, not so much at creative thought and people skills.
Cities that maintain their ability to shift workers into new employment opportunities resulting from technological change will prove the most resilient.
