How secure is your job from the threat of automation?

It’s a question on the lips of almost all workers in 2019. As the rising trend for utilising Artificial Intelligence (AI) and automation in the workplace penetrates nearly every industry, questions are being raised about just how adaptable the technology can be.

    Although this sounds pretty utopian or scary depending on how you look at it, my main concern is the impact this will have on those whose jobs are affected. As far as I can see no government is taking any steps to prepare us for this new world as it will likely require totally different thinking.
