Automation in our future

The Technology Office at UHS often has conversations about surprising jobs or tasks that have already been automated.

Some examples:

– Driving (Google self-driving car – Anthony Levandowski is a UHS grad, class of 1998)

– Picking strawberries (Shibuya Seiki’s robot)

– Factory assembly work (RethinkRobotics’ Baxter)

And in case this list has given you the wrong impression that only mundane and/or menial tasks are susceptible to automation:

– Anesthesiology (J&J’s Sedasys)

What task or job that has been automated do you find most surprising? What do you think will be automated next? Please let us know in the comments below!
