Robots could replace 20 million jobs in industry worldwide by 2030, exacerbating social and geographical inequalities, but it would have a positive impact on economic growth.
The British office of Oxford Economics announced that the jobs with the lowest qualifications will be most affected, in unequal ways by country or within the countries themselves.
Robots have already taken several million jobs from people in the industry, and this trend is advancing in other areas thanks to modern technology and artificial intelligence, the British office said in its report, which also discusses the economic aspect of using robots.
Many analysts believe that automation in general has contributed more to job creation than job creation, but a larger gap has been created between jobs with higher and lower qualifications, leaving many workers jobless.
Robotization will increase productivity and economic growth, experts estimate, estimating that the world economy could have a profit of up to 5,000 billion dollars by 2030.
Experts also point out that jobs with repetitive actions will be the most affected, as well as jobs in logistics centers.
Jobs that require “compassion, creativity and rational intelligence” will remain in people’s hands for decades to come, the report said, adding that robots will still be more present in trade, health, hospitality, transport and agriculture.
