47% of US employment is highly susceptible to automation within the next twenty years. In other words, almost half of current jobs in America will, quite soon, no longer exist. This is especially true of low-skill, low-income positions, which are highly correlated with susceptibility to automation. Thus, jobs requiring higher education are considered the “safest” for the next few decades.
