Automation and technology replacing jobs has long been a conversation in Nevada’s most populated city.
- Studies show that between 38% to 65% of jobs there could be automated by 2035.

- Walk any direction in Las Vegas and it’s easy to find machines doing human work.
- Check-in kiosks have replaced people at the front desk of hotels. Text-bots now make restaurant recommendations instead of a concierge. Robots can serve food, and behind the bar, machines are pouring out drinks.
