Hospitality, personal services, manufacturing and production, back office and logistics jobs are all at above-average risk of automation, according to the report, which was presented at the Sept. 28 Land of Sky Regional Council meeting. Of the region’s six biggest occupations, only the medical field is at below-average risk. Automation risk data comes from an Oxford study of over 750 occupations that shows half of all occupations have at least 62% of their duties at risk of automation.

Higher automation could imply job losses, but it could also mean the significant use of new technologies to boost productivity, according to the report.
