Threat of Automation See on Hackerspace

We performed an analysis of open data provided by various government agencies to quantify the precise impact automation will have to various occupations and industries. We showed that the computerization will impact not just low skill manufacturing jobs but also on high skill jobs such as accounting, legal and even technical jobs.
This project provides insight into this issue through an easy to use and interactive web interface. It also includes a report that serves to explain the information presented on the website. The report also provides an explanation as to how the analysis was done and how the figures were created. The goal is to provide adequate early warning about the job loss due to automation that the entire labor force will face.
