Could you Automate a CEO?
In 2014, Oxford University published a report on what the most likely jobs to be automated were. Unsurprisingly, jobs perceived to be less skilled were most at threat. Telemarketing came top of the list with a 99% chance of automation. At the other end of the scale, recreational therapy is thought of as the job with the least risk from being automated with a 0.0028% risk. Perhaps surprisingly, CEOs weren’t the least under threat. Chief Executives came 631st on the 702-strong list. Enough to prick the ears, not enough to worry – at least not for now.
