A third of workers think their jobs are at risk from automation

CIPHR has compiled a list of the occupations that are the most and least likely to be replaced by technology or machines , based on the results of a survey of more than 1,000 UK workers . Survey respondents were asked to rate the likelihood that their own occupation could become automated in the future , due to advances in smart technologies , Artificial Intelligence ( AI ), Machine Learning and robotics . in England . The findings show a distinct difference , for almost all occupations included in the study , between what workers think is likely to happen to their current jobs and what ONS researchers predict will happen to those jobs .

Around a third of women ( 33 %) and over two-fifths ( 43 %) of men consider it likely or very likely that automation could replace their jobs . While over half ( 54 %) of those aged 18-to-24-years-old , compared to around a quarter ( 27 %) of over-45s , believe that their job might not exist one day .
Just because an occupation could become fully automated , however , doesn ’ t mean it necessarily will . A more widely accepted view is that many roles will adapt and evolve and that new roles will be created , as even more work tasks and business processes – particularly those that are more routine or repetitive – can be done efficiently by machines .
CIPHR compared its survey results with a report by the Office for National Statistics ( ONS ) on the probability of automation
