Pew Research Center Studies Reactions to Automation Technologies

Pew Research Center’s Internet & Tech division released a new report, “Automation in Everyday Life,” which finds that “Americans express more worry than enthusiasm about coming developments in automation—from driverless vehicles to a world in which machines perform many jobs currently done by humans,” according to the report’s summary. The survey had presented a series of scenarios, with some more futuristic than others: computer algorithms contributing to hiring decisions, autonomous vehicles and cars with semi-autonomous features, robot caregivers, etc. It showed that “many Americans anticipate significant impacts from various automation technologies in the course of their lifetimes” and that “76% of Americans expect that economic inequality will become much worse if robots and computers are able to perform many of the jobs that are currently done by humans.”

For more information, read the report’s summary.
