Automation technologies such as machine learning and robotics play an increasingly important role in everyday life, and their potential effect on the workplace has become a cause for concern. Ferry Grijpink explores which jobs will or won’t be replaced by machines, sharing research that finds that the technical potential for automation differs dramatically across sectors and activities and that automation will impact activities rather than occupations.
