The autonomous cars and robots will lead to mass unemployment.
Аccording to Dr. Subhash Kak, a professor of electrical and computer engineering and a leading expert from Oklahoma University, artificial intelligence, and self-driving cars could put a third of all people out of work.
Vehicles that transport people using artificial intelligence are increasingly becoming a part of our everyday life. Dr. Subhash Kak believes a third of jobs will be lost.

Dr. Kak also warns that as robots are taking control of the world, humans are heading for a dystopian future with mass unemployment. Autonomous cars and artificial intelligence are making an impact in all business sectors. Dr. Subhash Kak says that as one-third of the people in any advanced economy are engaged in transportation, those employees will lose their jobs as soon as self-driving cars become widely adopted. Kak predicts a world where robots replace humans and machines will work at a cheaper price and longer hours without getting tired.

In November, a report called “Jobs lost, jobs gained: Workforce transitions in a time of automation” was created by a management consultancy firm, McKinsey. The report assesses the number and type of jobs that could be lost to automation and what professions are most at risk over the next 13 years. The report suggests that physical jobs in predictable environments, like machine-operators and fast-food workers, are the most likely to be taken by robots, while care providers, gardeners, and plumbers are least at risk. According to the report, new jobs will be available and people may need to learn new skills to get them.
