WEB Notes: It is an ever changing world and this is where we are going like it or not. If you are in the technology field, keep those skills sharp.
Robots will handle 52 percent of current work tasks by 2025, almost twice as many as now, a World Economic Forum (WEF) study said Monday.
The sharp increase could also see a net gain in “new roles” for humans, who will have to revamp skills to keep pace with the “seismic shift” in how we work with machines and computer programmes, the forum estimated.
“By 2025 more than half of all current workplace tasks will be performed by machines as opposed to 29 percent today,” a statement by the Swiss non-profit organisation said.
