Chefs and truck drivers beware: AI is coming for your jobs

by Matt O'brien
 

Robots aren't replacing everyone, but a quarter of U.S. jobs will be severely disrupted as artificial intelligence accelerates the automation of existing work, according to a new Brookings Institution report.

Thursday's report from the Washington think tank says roughly 36 million Americans hold jobs with "high exposure" to automation—meaning at least 70 percent of their tasks could soon be performed by machines using current technology. Among those most likely to be affected are cooks, waiters and others in food services; short-haul truck drivers; and clerical office workers.

I sure hope so. Even trains have engineers.

There are no "Socialists", no "Progressives", only Communists, with every negative image that totalitarianism might muster, demanding fealty and conformity to their views, with a legacy of 150,000,000 dead and counting.

It appears to be really cold where you are now. How cold is it? Is it "normal" or something else?

I'm in Colorado at the moment. I guess it is cold for here (+17), but for a guy from ND, it's balmy.

Back home, it's even warmer (+27), all temps below freezing but above zero. It's all good.  :laugh:

Oh, I thought it was supposed be about 40 degrees cooler than "normal" in the Dakotas either now or in the coming days. That's a lot cooler...
