This is not a joke, even though it sounds like a bad sci-fi movie or the title of a smudgy xeroxed screed being circulated amongst conspiracy theorists. I just read an article in Fast Company citing a recent Oxford University study that shows how almost half (47% ) of current jobs could be done by machines in the fairly near future.
