The New Jobs: as automation takes on more and more tasks, what will human workers do? - ACM Communications, Vol. 61. N° 1, Jan. 2018

Autonomous vehicles are all but certain to replace truckers and taxi drivers in the coming decades, and robots have already taken over many jobs in factories and warehouses. Industrial robots alone have eliminated as many as 670,000 U.S. jobs between 1990 and 2007.

Despite huge advances in both the sensors and artificial intelligence required to operate these cars, one thing has so far proved elusive: developing algorithms that can accurately and consistently identify objects, movements, and road conditions
