This gives the whole situation a very positive outlook. The report says that the innovation in computer technology will free man power for more important tasks. There is also another section of people which believes that there is no surety that the lost employment is going to be replaced.

World Economic Forum heads the renowned Davos Networking program is of the opinion that as these robots and new formulas will substantially help in improving the efficiency of current jobs and hence lead the way for plenty of new ones in the upcoming time. This means that there will be more requirements in the field of software development, data analysis and social media specialization along with in the sectors relating to human characteristics like teachers and customer care executives. They also warned that the whole scenario may bring with itself significant amount of disruption because some jobs will gradually become unnecessary and dispensable. The robots can easily take the places in areas like accounting, factory units, post office jobs and the secretarial and clerical work. This major change will lead to an updation of the employees to suit their present job requirements.
