It was little over a century ago that one in three Australian workers were employed in primary industries. By 2015, 70 per cent of the Australian economy was made up of service-based industries.

By some estimates, almost 40 per cent of the workforce – around five million Australian jobs – face the high probability of being replaced by computers in the next 10 to 15 years.
