Oxford Economics said greater use of robots will eliminate up to 20 million manufacturing jobs around the world in the next decade. Lots of service-oriented jobs largely immune from automation in the past could also be taken up by machines. Yet the rise of robots will create just as many -- if not more -- opportunities as it extinguishes, according to the report. Oxford contends the robot revolution will deliver a $5 trillion increase in global wealth that ends up creating millions of new jobs.
