According to a new study released by the Brookings Institute
, higher education
leads to jobs with less potential for being displaced by automation
. On the whole, a little over half of jobs that require less than a Bachelors degree are at risk of automation. For jobs where at least a Bachelors degree is required, only a quarter of jobs are currently at risk of being replaced.
Looking at specific occupations, about eight out of ten food preparation and service jobs have the potential to become automated, while only about 20 percent of management positions currently hold the potential for automative disruption.
