The study found approximately 456,000 jobs across the city—that is, one in 10—are "highly susceptible to automation," meaning that machines could take over 80% of the tasks associated with them. This category comprises not only fast-food workers and dishwashers, but tens of thousands of bookkeepers and accountants.

But Center for an Urban Future clarified that this does not mean 80% of such positions will disappear, but only that machines will absorb the simpler, more repetitious duties. Humans, meanwhile, will devote greater time and attention to more demanding, knowledge-based aspects of their jobs, including new assignments related to the gadgets in their workplace.

Cheers, and have an outstanding day
