Wishful thinking in this report
Sorry Arntz, Gregory and Zierahn but over the next 10-20 years - advancements in AI (deep neural networks), robotics and nanotech there will be huge job losses. I am a coder specializing in automation and it's already here.
Just one small example - within the automobile and trucking industries mass automation is ripe and imminent (Google, Daimler, Otto, Tesla's upgradeable features, legislation already passed in states within the US to allow driverless semis, Uber's driverless pilot program in Pittsburgh, etc.). A large number of US jobs are under threat - there are 3.5 million truckers in the US, 233,000 taxi drivers, valet drivers, postal delivery, restaurant delivery, etc.
The conclusions in the paper are just wishful thinking - it's like watching four kids in a raft 50 feet from the edge of Niagara broadcasting 'it's smooth as glass, we're good!!". Arntz, Gregory and Zierahn would be wise to steep themselves in the the growth of exponential technologies and write about how we are going to successfully transition to a post-employment world.
