The Telegraph looks at a report by accountancy firm Deloitte which predicts that by 2035, automation would "liberate" humans from "repetitive and highly structured" jobs. Reportedly, this will mean that "800,000 to one million jobs would no longer be performed by humans."
Mark Carney, the Bank of England Governor, said last month that many of the jobs and industries we are now familiar with “will be gone tomorrow”. The rising speed of technological change threatens to make it difficult to choose a career, and for young people to plan their lives, he said.
During a commencement speech at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada, the Governor said: “It is entirely unrealistic to map out the decades ahead.” He added that “many of the jobs and even the industries of today will be gone tomorrow”. As a result, Mr Carney advised graduates to be “flexible and adventurous”.
