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