Easier than having to wear a tag with your last name on it.

My career isn't listed.  Guess I"ll just not be unskilled and find a better paying job anyway.

It is mostly a list of jobs likely to be replaced by robots.

Don't be so sure.

Automation isn't necessary when you can pay people $7/hr.

better than the job I had where I was named "Candy" for a week...

as vague as some of those were, are there any service jobs not on that list?  and how is construction laborer a service job?

You would be surprised. My local CVS branches have mostly replaced cashiers with self checkout machines.

-Secretary, admin assistant, office clerk and bookkeeper roles should be combined into one title to better reflect job descriptions.

-audit clerks? Perhaps in India.

-its a good thing accountants are in demand, perhaps the increasing glut of accounting grads will get sorted out. Ha, who am I kidding?

The article says service jobs dominated the list, not that all the jobs on the list were service jobs.

Gotta get those sweatshop jobs back to America.

Assistant crack whore off the list?

Does having to wear an ID badge count as wearing a name tag?  Because I have to wear one of those.

You want to Supersize that?

It will be interesting to see how many of the nursing type jobs vanish as the healthcare industry goes through the transformation. The pressure will be to reduce floor headcount to bring the Cost of Labor Percentages down to a more acceptable level. And this is without the expected triage of medical care (based on your productivity to society) that is inevitable.

If you have an MBA, you should seek out a Product Manager position in F2P mobile games.

It's just about the most highly sought after position in the gaming sector right now. You will make a lot of money at entry level and no game development experience is necessary.

Like Post Man. Post Office should totally look into switching to drone delivery.

No it has just been renamed to Bottom biatch.

Suck-A-Tron 100 and the LIcky-Licky Mark 2 bot will take those jobs.

Won't matter. We're gonna mandate a $20 minimum wage for everything.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moravec's_paradox

The main lesson of thirty-five years of AI research is that the hard problems are easy and the easy problems are hard. The mental abilities of a four-year-old that we take for granted - recognizing a face, lifting a pencil, walking across a room, answering a question - in fact solve some of the hardest engineering problems ever conceived... As the new generation of intelligent devices appears, it will be the stock analysts and petrochemical engineers and parole board members who are in danger of being replaced by machines. The gardeners, receptionists, and cooks are secure in their jobs for decades to come.[2]

I mean, sure, no one credible is demanding a minimum wage over $10.10 and the voices demanding $15 are both few and clearly just trying to shift the frame of discussion, but, yeah, that stupid thing you said is probably true, anyway. Makes sense.

this is what happens when you don't manufacture things (and making a burger does not count as manufacturing). We should be increasing our manufacturing capacity, not decreasing it.

I have a three-month-old, and watching her brain adapt to her limbs and sensory functions is nothing short of amazing. Newborns are completely incapable of almost anything, and in three months she's gotten so she can, about 60% of the time, grab something she wants to. She recognizes her parents (which is an awesome feeling), she can stand up straight if I support her torso and her balance gets better every day, and she can look around a room and see things that interest her.

To us it seems like building an arm that can grip is easy because we do it every day, but when you see a person learn how to use an arm, these problems seem increasingly hard.

Ha! Have you ever heard about people complain about having to use an interactive voice menu?
While you are right that eventually when there is a highly advanced enough AI my tech support job is probably toast.

I am not  holding my breath though.
