Will You Lose Your Job to a Robot?

Technology is moving fast. There’s usually no longer any need to talk to an actual human when you go to the bank or grocery store, and the automation trend is not slowing down.

Robots don’t get bored or fatigued, they work long hours while making hardly any mistakes, and they never ask for a raise.
Fortunately, unlike robots (for now), we humans can adapt to our own impending obsolescence and branch out and learn new skills and try new things. Obsolete robots end up on the scrap heap.
In the mean time, here’s an MSNBC piece on some humans that may have to have to stand aside an let Mr. Roboto take over.
