Not a new topic but something I am familiar with through my research and teaching. A couple of reports have come out in the last few months that discuss automation of work activities. I heard a guy on the radio who reckoned 40% of jobs today will have disappeared in 10 years. That doesn’t mean the people who did them won’t do something else, but automation is here and is coming to a job near you.
The region most at threat (according to this report) is North Warwickshire where, it so happens, a lot of Jaguar Land Rover’s manufacturing is based.
