8 Jobs That Robots Can Already Do Better Than You

Robot Takeover: Is Your Job Safe?

Posted on

Robots are smarter than you, stronger than you, and they never get tired. They can even beat you on Jeopardy or in a game of chess without breaking a mechanical sweat. As computers get smarter and robots get more advanced, which jobs are under threat? Let's take a look...

2. Journalist


Narrative Science is an algorithm that can write financial and sports reports based on data. You'll be happy to know that this goddam machine has a column in Forbes and you honestly can't tell it wasn't written by a human. Did I mention they are partially funded by the CIA?

3. Driving

Drivers of all sorts of vehicles will be some of the first to lose their jobs. Here is google's driverless car in action, which is street legal in Nevada. As for train drivers? The DLR trains in London never even had drivers.

5. Artist


This is eDavid, signing his name after painting a portrait. And yes, eDavid is a frickin robot that uses real paint to draw stuff better than you could ever draw stuff.

6. Astronaut

If I was an astronaut, I would be pretty pissed off that robots are getting all the action. This is the robot rover Curiosity taking a selfie on Mars. What a dick.

7. Acrobat
