Will automation change your job? Yes — and no, CEOs say


    This week’s question to South Florida CEOs who are on the Miami Herald CEO Roundtable: What jobs in your industries do you think could be at risk from automation in the years to come?


    As a technology company that builds software to automate the construction process, we see first-hand the impact technology is having on jobs in construction. In the years ahead, some jobs in the construction industry will change, others will be eliminated, and new ones will be created. This is necessary and will have a positive impact in construction because the industry is forecasting a labor shortage in the coming years. Automation will be required to meet the needs of the construction industry with the available labor pool.
