Machines can do most of a psychologist’s job. The industry must prepare for disruption. There are 39,000 registered psychologists working in Australia and there are 122,000 members of the American Psychological Association. With the advent of Artificial Intelligence how many will have full employment within the next decade?

University of South Australia Adjunct Professor Mike Innes developed the original concept for this comic. Together with Macquarie University Senior Lecturer, Organisational Psychology, Ben Morrison, they have been alerting psychologists, students and anyone considering psychology as a career, to the impact AI is going to have on the profession.

Many years ago Mike Innes was my honours supervisor. Working with him on this project has been wonderful fun!
