The governor of the Bank of England has warned that 15million jobs in the UK could be taken by robots.
And it's not just the jobs you'd expect. Accountants, taxi drivers and even writers could be at risk. Here is what you need to know.
Driverless cars will mean robots will take over from drivers.
Self-checkouts are already popular. How long before shops go self-checkout only?
In China, humans are already building robots that will ultimately take their jobs.
Automation will mean people won’t need to hire an expensive accountant.
Robots already assist doctors with surgery and their speed and accuracy will improve significantly in the coming years.
8.5% of Wikipedia is written by a robot. In 15 years’ time, 90% of news will be too.
