Rise of the robots

Geographical differences in the impacts of automation and jobs at potential high risk of automation by parliamentary constituency.

Nearly nine million British jobs are at risk from robots, with those working in retail, manufacturing and business support services most at risk, figures reveal.

The rise of Artificial Intelligence is expected to see current jobs wiped out across a wide range of sectors as automation becomes cheaper than humans.

In total 8,820,545 posts could be wiped out by 2030, with retail workers at the biggest risk, according to Department for Work and Pensions figures given to MailOnline.

They are followed by manufacturing and then business administration and support services, where workers are also at high risk from automation.

But ministers said regions across Britain are taking on the challenge posed by the robots head on by creating jobs which are at lower risk from AI.
