The short answer is... probably.  

This is a really interesting article from the Daily Telegraph of the 6th of June, by Robert Colville, author of "The Great Acceleration: How the World is Getting Faster." It's well worth a read, but if you haven't time then this list - of jobs at risk and jobs that are probably safe (for the time being) - makes for disconcerting viewing for some. Fortunately, "Computer Scientists" are not on the 'at risk' list!

10 professions that will almost certainly be automated…

  • Telemarketing
  • Loan officers
  • Umpires
  • Bank tellers
  • Engravers
  • Credit analysts
  • Office clerks
  • Legal secretaries
  • Estate agents
  • Chefs

…and 10 professions that probably won’t

  • Therapists
  • Social workers
  • Human resources managers
  • Fashion designers
  • Teachers
  • Pharmacists
  • Engineers
  • Public relations
  • Computer scientists
  • Health and safety engineers
