These professions are on the cards to be of a high risk when staying gainfully employed as laid out by USA info people. Australia can best be aware & mindful of similar trends here.
John Pugliano, author of “The Robots are Coming: A Human’s Survival Guide to Profiting in the Age of Automation,” sees plenty of white collar jobs that will be threatened by automation.
“Bottom line, any routine job that can easily be defined by a mathematical or logic equation will be at risk,” Pugliano said. “Opportunity will be [there] for those that can create new produces/services or solve/fix unexpected problems.”
So your accountant may not have a job in the future, but plastic surgeons and emergency room doctors should do well. And trades people, Pugliano said, will always have work.

Ms Parry-Okeden’s net worth of $US8.8 billion ($12.5 billion) makes her the country’s richest person (again) while Ms Rinehart has fallen to second place with a net worth of $US8.5 billion ($12.1 billion).
Forbes says Ms Parry-Okeden, who grew up in Hawaii and moved to her ex-husband’s country of birth Australia decades ago, was recently confirmed to be an Australian citizen.
After her mother’s 2007, death she inherited a quarter of US media conglomerate Cox Enterprises, America’s third-biggest cable TV company.
This is not the first time Forbes has named Ms Parry-Okeden as Australia’s richest person. She first took the title in 2009, overtaking mining magnate Andrew “Twiggy” Forrest for the top spot
Ms Rinehart’s wealth erosion was the largest in dollar terms, but fellow iron ore miner Andrew Forrest’s wealth took the biggest percentage hit: down 41 per cent, sending him down 12 spots on the rich list to No. 22.
Property baron Harry Triguboff ranks number three on this year’s list, with a net worth of $US6.9 billion ($9.8 billion).
Rising rents and increased demand for his Sydney apartments helped drive up Mr Triguboff’s fortune by $US1.3 billion, Forbes says.
Property sales of his apartment tower development company, Meriton, are expected to rise 70 per cent this year.
The biggest winner on the rich scale in percentage terms was Atlassian co-founder Mike Cannon-Brookes. His wealth jumped 62 per cent to $US1.78 billion after the successful float of the software company on the US sharemarket in December. Atlassian’s co-founder, Scott Farquhar, is right behind him.
James Packer fell two spots to sixth rank with an estimated fortune of $3.5 billion.
