(The AEGIS Alliance) – According to a study published on Wednesday, approximately 39% of household chores are expected to be handled by robots by 2033, as predicted by a group of 65 artificial intelligence specialists in the U.K. and Japan.
The estimate was based on a survey conducted by the researchers, who were from the University of Oxford and Ochanomizu University in Japan. The study’s authors noted that the potential social and economic implications of this future of unpaid work could be significant.
While the researchers found that grocery shopping was most likely to become automated, they also found that caring for the young and old was least likely to be taken over by robots.
However, the researchers cautioned that predicting the future of automated work is not an exact science and can vary based on cultural and social factors. Male Japanese experts were the most pessimistic, while male British experts were the most optimistic in their predictions.
The study’s authors noted that expert opinion cannot be considered as an objective ‘ground truth’. Despite this, predictions of a robot takeover have been around for decades, with companies such as OpenAI’s ChatGPT and AI enthusiasts predicting a future where robots can perform household chores, drive cars and make autonomous decisions.
During the year 2007, it was reported that Honda and Toyota were competing in a “race to produce the first robots that are intelligent and agile enough to perform chores, drive cars and make ‘autonomous’ decisions.” However, over 15 years after that news, these kinds of robots still look to be some distance away into the future.

Not in my house they Won’t
Experts predict nobody will have a home left to clean at these rising rents. Most will just become street wonderers with a personal robot that can cook and blow hot air on them and recycle their poop.
Can’t they do it any sooner.. My house where my ex lives. Must be a dump by now.. 🤔
Not in my fucking house
A serious solar storm takes out the world electric grid. only analog mechanics work. a few prepared and hidden under ground and water —make it. Managing survival and conveniences without the tech begins again …
It’s about time lol
Robots will be at home making music and art while we’re all at work
James Arnott Your comment is way too on point for me to have caught on a Sunday afternoon.
And the planet will have at least 39 percent less people on it.
John Sean Burns literally an inaccurate account there will be more people maybe less jobs
Tristan Steven Jackson not with all the jabbed up idiots not being able to make babies, and dropping like flies. Consider the possibility that some evil people want to depopulate the planet, and that they may consider you and me ‘useless eaters’. Yes, I am a conspiracy type person, but it doesn’t mean that they are not out to get us ‘oxygen thieves’. Stay loose, and try to outlive the baskets
John Sean Burns i didnt get the jab but i dont think people are gonna die from that complications sure but thats a bit much if they wanted to depopulate theres way faster ways to take us all out not subtle but could be done so no i dont think your math quite adds up
Tristan Steven Jackson unsustainable
John Sean Burns
Earth cannot sustain 8Billion people-definitely not at the current expected standard of living.
The population correction is coming , with no respect for rank or wealth. Let’s hope enough survive.
Tristan Steven Jackson I said what I said.
Dave Nabers you’re as bloody cheerful as I am. I agree, but undoubtedly some will be ‘more equal than others’. And I really will resist forced jabs and lock downs etc. Keep smiling
NOT in MY HOME!!! 😉
