We know the robots are coming for our jobs, but depending on where you live this may happen in a shorter amount of time.
According to online statistics, market research and business intelligence portal Statista, there are already a number of countries where the rise of the machines is very much in play. In a new chart using data from the International Federation of Robotics Statista looks at the countries where you will find the highest density of robot workers.
South Korea took top prize with 631 robots per 10,000 human workers. According to the IFR, this is due to that country’s installation of a high volume of robots specifically in the electrical/electronics and automotive industries.
Singapore wasn’t too far behind with 488 installed robots per 10,000 people and Germany came in strong for third with 309 robots for every 10,000 people. The U.S. took the seventh spot just ahead of Italy with 189 robots. Take a look at the chart below for the rest of the rankings.
The most important thing to take away from this data is that there is no slow down in sight when it comes to robots coming for jobs.
