More than five million jobs, almost 40 per cent of Australian jobs that exist today, have a moderate to high likelihood of disappearing in the next 10 to 15 years due to technological advancements, a CEDA report being released today has found.
Figure 1 shows the estimated probabilities of the susceptibility of jobs to computerisation
and automation in Australia, segmented into notionally high, medium and low
probability sectors. Notably, 40 per cent of current jobs have a high probability (greater
than 0.7) of being computerised or automated in the next 10 to 15 years. This is a
lower figure than that for the US (50 per cent) – we believe due to smaller numbers of
workers in the service sector – and is comparable to the UK.
