Your jobs are too boring for the robots

A recent topic to whine about for undergraduate business students is, that robots could take their jobs in the near future. But let's think about it. Robots fly into space and land on Mars. They dive into the deep ocean and explore places on earth where no human has ever been. They repair leakages in nuclear power plants when no human can go there. Robots are adventurous and perhaps even "want" to make the world a better place. Why should a robot sit in a cubical, be a financial controller, a banker, a salesman or accountant? That's very boring for a robot. I guess, they have higher aspirations. So, you are perfectly safe. No contest. No worries.
