Architects’ jobs safe from robots ... for now

  • Comment

More than two thirds of existing jobs in the UK are at ‘high risk’ of computerisation and robotic automation over the next 20 years, according to a study by researchers at Deloitte and Oxford University.

Fortunately for the profession, there is only a 2 per cent chance that architects will be replaced by machines before 2035.

Town planners are more at risk, with a 13 per cent chance of robot-enforced redundancy, while plumbers have a worrying 50/50 chance of obsolescence.

Spare a thought for roofers though. Their odds of survival aren’t good. In 20 years’ time there is a 90 per cent likelihood no humans will ever be needed again to shimmy up a ladder on to our rooftops.
