134 jobs in the Philippines that robots might take over by 2030

Advertisement

A research suggests that by 2030, robots will replace 38 percent of the jobs in the U.S while 30 percent are estimated to be taken over by artificial intelligence (AI) in the U.K. On other hand, Germany and Japan will have 35 percent and 21 percent of jobs threatened by automation respectively.

The U.S. has around 123.76 million full-time employees in 2016, according to figures at Statista. If PwC UK’s estimates stand true, at least 47.03 million workers in America will lose employment.

The founder of Bridgewater Associates, Ray Dalio, also had the same estimate, in that he told Fox Business that in the world, around “40 percent of all jobs are going to be replaced over the next twenty years by these algorithms in various forms.”

Currently, there is no similar research applied in the Philippine context, where about 40.8 million Filipinos were employed during 2016.

The nation’s labor force is grouped into three major sectors: agriculture, industry, and services sector. And based on the figures from the 2016 Annual Labor and Employment Status by the Philippine Statistics Authority, 55.6 percent of Filipinos are currently employed in the services sector.

If we apply the 38-percent estimate for the U.S. alone, out of the 22.68 million Filipinos working in the services sector, a staggering 8.62 million could have their work replaced by robots in 2030, given that AI is also used in the said sector.

Taking also into consideration that an overall 40.8 million Filipinos are employed full-time, chances are that about 15.5 million could have their work replaced by robots.

That is a lot of jobs.

A site called “Will Robots Take My Job?” can give us an idea on the likelihood of a certain job at risk of being automated. While the report is mainly applied in the U.S., it still helps to know what the chances are.

That being said, here is the probability of certain jobs at risk of being replaced by AI:

Although the figures above are just projection, it could not be denied, however, that AI is going to be implemented sooner or later. Case in point: AIs being used in self-driving cars.

The challenge now for the education and government sectors is to come up of policies and strategies that will equip people with skills hard to be automated.
