Robots could soon take our jobs away. Artificial intelligence technology is growing at a record pace. It is not just neural networks that are now being used in our sensors. Jobs such as truck driver could be gone soon. After all, we do know that self driving trucks will be safer and cost us less money. Expect this to have a ripple effect on our economy.

These are the jobs most at risk of automation according to Oxford University: Is yours one of them?

Robots will destroy our jobs – and we're not ready for it

These robots and automation already exist. Not every company can afford them or make it more economical for them than employees. A lot of third world employees of major corporations doing outsourcing are borderline criminal operations. Poor people will always exist as it has been since the beginning of modern civilization. Jobs come and go as well, there are a LOT of jobs that "electricity" destroyed but also a lot if has invented and we're okay today. This is called evolution. Don't be scared of change... embrace it. It's inevitable anyways and it's the only universal constant.

People always make this complaint and it has no merits. Yes, jobs are lost to technological progress, that simply opens up new jobs in different fields, that's the other side of the coin you aren't looking at. The automobile destroyed the Pony Express. You are crying about all the lost jobs with the horses and the industry that went into supporting them. What you aren't looking at are the new jobs going into the automotive industry.

Back in the 1940's, 50's, 60's, America's economy was quite dependent on manufacturing. With the progress of technology, you decried the loss of manufacturing jobs. What you are choosing to ignore, are the thousands of new consulting positions that have opened up over the past several decades, in addition to all the IT positions required to support the new technologies.

Its good to know that President Trump is concentrating more on producing goods within the US, i believe in protectionism not Globalism!..
For example he wants US made Steel, Iron and Concrete, which obviously means more jobs for US people and more good news, since January this year, 300.000 more jobs have been created(y):)..

When products are made locally, it costs more. The reason outsourcing is so appealing to companies is because it is CHEAPER. Once you bring it back in-house you're going to raise the cost; because now the company supports employees to live in a first world nation rather than supporting a third world nation's citizens which means the cost is tenfold. That $1.75 a day I was paying Pedro is now $175 per day for Peter.

So it's great the USA will make more products in-house to support its own citizens but it will inevitably drive up the cost of those products.
