35% of UK jobs are at risk of being automated over the next two decades
According to Oxford University, in the years ahead, millions of jobs in sectors such as accounting and auditing will be replaced with machines that can so the same tasks much more cheaply and effectively than human workers – without requiring salaries, holidays or sick pay – while administrators, paralegals and bank clerks will also be hit hard.
We need to help people develop skills that machines are still relatively bad at, such as creativity, empathy and problem-solving.
When it comes to the real-life race against the machine, we have no time to lose. Either we can rise to the challenge of automation, and radically overhaul our education, training and skills system, or wage a losing battle trying to compete.
