Are you interested in how robotics and automation is going to change the labor market in the coming years, then take a look at the documentary “Humans Need Not Apply” (it only lasts 15 minutes). These (slightly unnerving) 15 minutes convincingly suggests that many of the jobs we humans have today will disappear in the coming years because automation (basic computers and robots) will do the job far cheaper, faster and better. The jobs that disappear are e.g. writers, journalists, designers, doctors and researchers, that profession after profession will be cut away by machines. The machines will challenge human labour because they firstly, can learn on their own (with the help of the Internet of Things) and secondly, they are cheaper to run than us humans. But watch the movie – maybe you’ll be amazed!
