I loved this site! Nice to see professions that will disappear due robots, I always believed about it and this website proved my thoughts! People still don't believe that robots will be used a lot and I keep saying to then; "if your work is to fill a excel by hand , you will be replaced by a robot /programing" and they glance at me angry/disbelief. Hope they try this site and start to believe in my argument!
