The countries where your job is most at risk of being taken by a robot

While we're still deciding whether machines and/or Mark Zuckerberg will inherit the Earth there is real possibility robots could be coming to take your job in the near to immediate future.

That's according to a report from Citi and the Oxford Martin School at the University of Oxford, aptly titled 'Technology at work v2.0: The future is not what it used to be'.

Researchers concluded that while technological developments have previously been applied to assisting people at work, "machine learning algorithms are now, in many cases, better at basic knowledge work than human workers".

In short, some jobs are at risk from becoming completely automated.

Using the study's findings Statista produced the following chart, highlighting which countries' workers are most in danger of having their role replaced by a machine.
