    Pretty much all jobs will go at some point, and there will not be enough jobs to replace the ones that were lost.

    Can only find one of my potential careers:
    Management Consulting (7% likelihood)

    Seems like they don't have a description for investment banking or alternative investment management.

    So I am studying to become a robotics engineer, therefore i will be the guy who is actually taking away peoples jobs. This basically puts me as the last person who's job will be replaced by a robot.

    Sorry guys....

    Psychologist- 1%

    I suppose whilst there is debate that computers may oneday get a sense of consciousness, I think it'll be a very long time until they can start providing psychological support!

    Although. This does remind me that actuarial methods are pretty accurate in their diagnostic potential in some areas of psychology, especially for risk assessments for recidivism, violent behavior, sexual offending, even suicide. Research shows actuarial methods (which is essentially a computer) can perform better in assessing such risk than clinical judgement. Although they are useless in knowing what to do with such information, which is where the psychologists come in I suppose.

    Sorry, bit of a tangent.
