A recent study found that more than half of Americans are afraid they will lose their job to a robot. While plenty of jobs could be in jeopardy, there are certain fields that could be considered "robot proof."
Lee Rainie, director of Internet and technology research at the Pew Research Center, calls these positions "high touch jobs" that are not in danger of being outsourced, he explained to CNBC's "On The Money" recently. Fox example, positions like hair stylists, doctors, nurses or even physical therapists could turn into high growth industries.
"Anything that involves dealing directly with the public and taking care of them, either their needs in health or other places" are likely to survive the robot onslaught, Rainie said. According to him, analysts also see a trend in in so-called S.T.E.M jobs involving science, technology, engineering and math. In particular, Lee pointed out algorithm writers and assessors in demand.
