“I’m sorry, Dave. I’m afraid I can’t do that.”

Is a robot gunning for your job? If you’re a telemarketer, it’s already happening. And if you’re a bank teller, there’s a 98.3 percent chance you’ll be automated in the next 20 years. That’s according to a pair of Oxford researchers via NPR’s handy automation calculator.

It turns out that if your job requires you to come up with clever solutions or be able to negotiate, it’s less likely to be automated any time soon. Which explains why graphic designers (8.2 percent) and writers (3.8) are relatively safe.
