Are Robots Really a Threat to Jobs?

WRITTEN BY: Anthony Bouchard

The world is changing, and one of mankind's growing fears is that technology will advance so much going forward that robots will take all our jobs. Whether this is a true concern is a moot point, as MIT professor Erik Brynjolfsson argues that where there are robots, there will always be jobs.

Robots are only going to take over the smaller tasks of some jobs, not the ones that will always need humans for decision-making. There will also always be jobs for repairing and replacing said robots, as well as in developing new ones that can perform new tasks, so where robots take jobs, new jobs are also created in their place.

The idea of robots taking over the workforce is a concept of creative destruction, and while some are worried about what such a future might entail, others are being asked to embrace it and move forward with the times.
