Machine learning is spectacularly effective when data sets are available for training and testing, which is the ca

Not anymore. Companies are increasingly using automations in place of people and experts predict machines will take over the majority of roles within the next 30 years. Here are 30 major firms that have already started replacing their workforce with robots. TESLA Tesla's new $5 billion (£4bn) Gigafactory 1 in the Nevada desert, which is still under construction, will be almost 100% automated in the future. By the third phase of its development, machines will do the vast majority of the work with just a tiny skeleton staff of humans overseeing them.
