It’s very clear by now that technology has automated many of tasks we once had to labour through – but what about your job? According to a survey of 1,900 experts by the Pew Research Center, an overwhelming majority believe artificial intelligence will have a very big part in our lives by 2025. Some experts, however, say this might not be totally to our advantage. The BBC’s David Botti looks at the survey and other studies to find out what the future may hold.

    Don't think that genetically modified people are not walking among you. A Chinese researcher by the name of He Jiankui modified the genes of twins .

    Yes. It's real "Jiankui" engineered twin girls—offspring of a healthy mother and an HIV-positive father. The twin girls were born to be resistant to HIV, the virus that causes AIDS- by using a nascent gene-editing technology called Crispr-Cas9 stunning the global scientific community… Look it up!

    Why should people make sure their kids master the pitch instead of the keyboard to prevent the condition of robots taking over the jobs?

    "Make sure ur kids are stupid and dont learn the uses of a computer, instead learn to be brainless football players" fucking amercican govt propaganda now showing up on bbc! Fyi, curators at museums have mostly been replaced already by automated systems, often using touch pad sensors to initiate the programming…. shitty news, shitty info, completely false with no evidence backing… bbc reporting is really slipping.

    They took our jobs.

  20. Too many people and less and less jobs…what an equation.

    I think "Bus Driver" is one of the most likely to get automated in the next 10 years, not one of the least likely.

  24. Club dei Cesari

    It'a genius thing

  25. Martin Rayner

    Any job that can be performed by a robot probably wasn't much of a worthwhile occupation in the first place.
