In the future the global employment market will rely heavily on robots, artificial intelligence, and all sorts of automation.

In fact, technology is so crucial going forward, that in January, the World Economic Forum predicted that in less than five years more than five million human jobs will be replaced by automation, AI, and robots.

Just this week, a new report showed nearly a third of retails jobs in the UK could disappear by 2025, with many workers replaced by technology in some way or another.

Deloitte ranked job sectors using data from Oxford University academics Carl Frey and Michael Osborne, and the ONS, before creating a ranking from what it calls the “proportion of jobs at high risk of automation.” Most of the jobs at risk of being taken by robots generally involved low skilled, manual work, but some of them might surprise you.
