Most Government Workers Could Easily be Replaced by Robots

Most Government Workers Could Easily be Replaced by Robots, Scientific Study Finds

“According to a new study from think tank Reform, 90% of the civil service workers in Britain could wind up seeing their jobs replaced by robots — over the course of just the next 15 years.

The study notes that “public sector employee unions have bloated the civil service ranks,” and that — by replacing low-level employees who are tasked with things like collecting data and filing paperwork — the British government could save roughly the equivalent of $8 billion per year.

What’s more, as Deputy U.S. Chief Technology Officer for The White House, Ed Felten wrote in May of 2016, a similar revolution is coming to the American government and its roughly 22 million employees.”
