Recently, we conducted a poll on Twitter to know if automation is taking away jobs in IT industry or not? 43% of respondents said automation is taking away jobs whereas 35% said otherwise. 22% were not sure about the outcome of automation. Contrary to the popular belief, automation is likely to create more jobs than it will take away. There is no denying to the fact that automation will take away jobs which comprise repetitive/mundane tasks, but at the same time, it will create jobs which will require higher expertise, especially in the IT industry.
