‘Robots’ Are Not 'Coming for Your Job'—Management Is - Gizmodo

Listen: ‘Robots’ are not coming for your jobs. I hope we can be very clear here—at this particular point in time, ‘robots’ are not sentient agents capable of seeking out and applying for your job and then landing the gig on its comparatively superior merits. ‘Robots’ are not currently algorithmically scanning LinkedIn and Monster.com with an intent to displace you with their artificial intelligence. Nor are ‘robots’ gathered in the back of a warehouse somewhere conspiring to take human jobs en masse. A robot is not ‘coming for’, or ‘stealing’ or ‘killing’ or ‘threatening’ to take away your job. Management is.

And yet, here’s a quick sampling of headlines from some prominent media outlets:
  • “Smart robots could soon steal your job” - CNN
  • “White-collar Robots Are Coming for Jobs” -Wall Street Journal
  • “Yes, the Robots Are Coming: Jobs in the Era of Humans and Machines” - Wired
  • “Are Robots Coming for Your Job? Eventually, Yes.” -the New York Times
  • “The Robots Are Coming, and They Want Your Job - VICE
  • “Robots Are Already Replacing Humans at an Alarming Rate” - Gizmodo
