5 White Collar Jobs Robots Already Have Taken

Thu, 26/02/2015 - 5:26am
bizwriter writes University of Oxford researchers Carl Benedikt Frey and Michael Osborne estimated in 2013 that 47 percent of total U.S. jobs could be automated and taken over by computers by 2033. That now includes occupations once thought safe from automation, AI, and robotics.

It also comes in the wake of last year's Fappening which saw a glut of naked celebrity photos leaked online.
