    Librarian - Apparently won't even be around in 20 years.

    Referee/umpires - Also not expected to be around in 20 years.

    A pilot? they're also not going to be needed.

    It's a pretty scary thought. There won't even be newspapers before you know it.

    Could you do what you are doing now in 50 years do you think? where will everyone work? the population continues to grow...

    Meh.

    Only if I can work out how to get out of the grave.

    Hopefully tube drivers will be the first to go

    At 92 I expect the sum total of my day will be shouting at puddles!

    I just stated in another thread about tube drivers, don't take too long period mortgage. Banking back office jobs, accounting jobs (replaced with SAP, PeopleSoft, Sage ...) , deliveries, cashiers, ticketing office, web site builders and support, programming (most gone with AI), agricultural crop picking, clerical jobs, simple law cases, conveyancing...

    Travel agents, they won't be around. I'm surprised they still survive now, thought all the best deals could be had online.

    50 years? OP, you are having a laugh, most jobs will be automated within 20 years with exponential rise in AI in automation!

    When you start getting your head around it, I'm left wondering where everyone will work? obviously these create jobs too, but only a very small proportion.

    Taxi drivers, delivery drivers, long distance lorry drivers....basically anything driving.

    Postmen
    Lots of admin staff
    Lots of shop workers
    Huge amounts of manufacturing positions

    Technological unemployment will define the next 40 years.

    I was maninly aiming the 50 year comment as a benchmark for people. You will still need people such as plumbers and doctors.

    At a rather wild guess I imagine the majority of the 1st world population will be working in virtual services

    In this country? Of course there's no plan.

    In some Scandinavian countries they're talking about a basic living income whereby everyone would get enough money to live on.

    But as a society we're unprepared for a world in which work might not be what life revolved around.

    In some parts of this city traffic wardens aren't needed. It's all done by camera and your registration plate, you then pay for your stay.

    RAND Corp funded Star Trek to "prepare the world for the future", someone, somewhere had some sort of plan.

    60% of students are chasing jobs that may be rendered obsolete by technology, report finds.

    I don't think even the current society are preparing for their own future.

    I agree. Society in general is unprepared, but good to see that individual 'preppers' such as yourself are ahead of the curve for a life without work. Enjoy the thread.

    Life expectancy and population increasing so increase of carers, nurses, doctors, tradesmen all required to accommodate this. I doubt much of those areas could be automated any time soon.

    Even in IT which is the most common area for automation a human touch is often required.

    Anyway my guess is takeaway delivery drivers will be replaced by Amazon style drones. Looking forward to a KFC bucket flying it's way to me within 30 minutes...

    whose to say something wont be invented that a robot cant do, that may require millions of workers, your thinking about current jobs but what about the ones that are yet to come.

    Go on then...

    It's ok because I'll be retired. But scary for kids/grandkids.

    I hope we get rid of dodgy politicians and bankers but they will always find a way of making sure there jobs aren't compromised.

    High Street Estate Agents - and i for one won't miss them.

    Recently sold a house for the asking price and it cost me £500 with easyproperty.com and I used a local solicitor (£780).

    A well known national high street estate agent turned up to quote before this in a bad fitting suit and gelled hair like he was starring in Ex On The Beach and laughed at me when i advised the asking price i wanted and he said i would never get it. He also wanted £1920 to advertise and do the viewings and then a further £800 if we use their solicitor!!

    I have been looking for property to do up for 6 months and one estate agent forgot to bring keys and it was a 30mile trip back to his office to get them! Another had never been to the property before and didn't know anything about it. They are all terrible.

    train...oh forget it.



    we were talking this in the office, we don't need to rely on trains in our area but staggers us how the country has ground to a halt recently. Odd that anything on the roads can be automated but so far trains which lets be honest could be the first thing to be automated since they don't have the added complications of other vehicles to worry about and automating all trains should make things much more easier to do than a car. But I guess the real barrier is unions.

    Hopefully tube drivers will be the first to go



    What job do you do?

    MrScotchBonnet

    Where do they all go? is there a plan or what?


    The long range plan is a socialism plan but people in these threads hate socialism. As far as I have know the Scandinavians have longer social plans. See here and if heard it from Corbyn you would chuck it out straight away because of culture legacy here in UK , finlandpolitics.org/201…10/

    Having no driver and guard on a train is dangerous, as they are there to carry out evacuations and block other lines in the event of incidents.

    Money over safety with the Government, where UK railways are profitting the German, Dutch and French Governments.

    By the time accountants are made obsolete i'll probably be either retired or have started up a company that makes automated accountants.

    We won't need as many trains, nobody will have to go anywhere fast.
