The automation of work once thought the sole domain of humans continues. Software can scan documents and prepare legal briefs now. Big farming is using automated machines. Google has a car that can drive itself in San Francisco. How much longer will people still be driving those triple Fedex trucks on I-15 here in Utah before they are replaced by robotic software? I’d say 5-10 years at the most. What’s different about these new robots is they use GPS and communicate with each other.
This trend is irreversible. Some types of jobs will vanish while others will replace them. The best we can do is to acknowledge it is coming and plan for it.
