    I can see truckers becoming an obsolete profession before the end of the century. With self-driving cars (and eventually self-flying planes/ helicopters) there's really no need to involve a human in the process. Stuff can deliver itself far more safely.

      A lot more jobs are threatened than that. The end of the century? Thats a very safe estimate, I think it will happen in the next 10-15 years.

        You're right that the technology will probably be ready in 10-15 years-- but every industry has traditions and workers who'll fight the change along the way. The technology isn't the only part of the process.

          You're right, it will definitely be a while more than 10-15 years before humans are completely out of the loop when it comes to transportation, I just figured you meant when we will become obsolete. I get what you meant now.
