Imagine a store without humans.

A robot taking your groceries and bagging them.

A Walmart robot reviewing your receipt.

A McDonald’s robot flipping your Big Mac.

A drone dropping off your groceries.

A machine doing your taxes just by scanning your documents.

Artificial news anchors.

Yes, these seem like far fetched scenarios, — for now.

But in just twenty years, I predict at least five of these predictions will become reality.

The robots are not coming, — they are here. Don’t fight them; they’ll win.

Instead learn how they are programmed, because companies want to save money. Your money and will cut jobs for robots in a heartbeat. Yes, they’ll keep some staff, but if a capable robot can do the job, then so be it.

So take a look at what you do and ask yourself, Can a robot do my job?
