“The Robots Are Coming, but Are They Really Taking Our Jobs?”


This source was written on Aug 6, 2014, by Adrienne Lafrance. She is a staff writer at The Atlantic, where she covers technology. She discussed how robots will enter our life in the future such as they are coming to house, to your doctor’s office, to your car, and to your favorite coffee shop. She also discussed the misunderstanding of this idea “Robots is replacing our jobs in the future”. While many existing jobs will be turned over to the machines, this cohort says, “human ingenuity will create new jobs, industries, and ways to make a living, just as it has been doing since the dawn of the Industrial Revolution.” and that is a positive outcome for the economy.

  • The most interesting things for me in this source is the wrong idea of robots replacing the job in percent of  52 by saying that ” But 52 percent of those surveyed predict that robots won’t displace more jobs than they create by 2025″ and how that will affect the economy by increasing the outcome.
  •  This source refers to other sources such as “AI, Robotics, and the future of the jobs”. She mentioned this source to show the survey about this topic and support her idea about the reality of robots replacing the jobs.
  • I want to know next how this idea is wrong and what some other thought about it?
