It is not a new debate whether robots are going to replace humans in certain jobs. A research conducted by Nomura Research Institute, a Japanese think tank, and University of Oxford, showed that in 10 to 20 years, nearly half of the jobs in Japan can be replaced by robots or artificial intelligence, Xinhua reported.

Based on the standards established by researchers, if more than 60 percent of a job content can be done by robots or artificial intelligence, it can be seen as a 'replaceable job'.

Similar research had been carried out by researchers from University of Oxford in the UK and the US and the ratios of the 'replaceable jobs' were 35 percent and 47 percent respectively.

Let's take a look at the top 10 jobs on the replaceable list and see if you are in the 'endangered' industries.


Royal Caribbean International's luxurious cruise 'Quantum of the Seas' has already 'hired' robot bartenders to mix drinks for the visitors on board. The robot named 'Monsieur' knows the recipe for 300 cocktails and can finish making a drink within seconds.
