Video: My Job Can Be Automated By 17%
The discussion about the future of the world of work is sometimes heated: On the one hand, there are advocates of the digital revolution who welcome the current development. After all, machines that take over a large part of modern production independently release human labor and, above all, creative resources. On the other hand, there are the skeptics who warn of mass unemployment and profound economic and social changes. The debates are strikingly emotional and draw either a dazzling sci-fi future or a dystopia in which humans are disempowered by machines.

The future of work
The ARD also deals with this issue in detail: For the theme week "Future of Work", the broadcaster produced various articles and reports that provide the viewer with comprehensive information about technical options and their effects on the world of work. A special highlight here is the Job-Futuromat. With the help of the online tool, the user can determine the "degree of automatability" of his profession: This corresponds to the proportion of essential tasks (activities) that could theoretically already be carried out by machines, robots or computer programs. The result ranges from 0% to 100%, with a high percentage describing a high automation potential of the activity.

32 percent of the professions are highly automated
For the tool, the ARD cooperated with experts from the Federal Employment Agency (BA) and their research institution, the Institute for Labor Market and Occupational Research (IAB). Thanks to this cooperation, the Job-Futuromat can access an extensive and high-quality data pool. And the self-test (see picture series) shows that the activities that the tool defines as essential for the professions are actually quite correct. The IAB's professional experts worked out the task profile for the almost 4,000 available professions on the basis of training regulations or job advertisements. An interesting result: Already a third of the professions are characterized by a high degree of automation (greater than 50%).According to this, smart machines - at least from a technical point of view - could perform half of the corresponding tasks automatically and independently. In 317 of the professions examined, the degree of automation is even between 90% and 100%. From a purely technological point of view, these jobs - at least almost 10% - could soon be taken over by machines. In view of these figures, there is no sign of a cooling of the discussions about the new digital employment relationships.Given these figures, digital employment relationships are therefore not in sight.Given these figures, digital employment relationships are therefore not in sight.
