We’re all familiar with the talk that robots are soon to take over the job market. What if one of those jobs were as your Uber driver?

Say what!?

Well, that’s exactly what the trendy car service is looking to accomplish…by the year 2035.

The company recently announced their strategic partnership with Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) on their blog, which includes creating an Uber Advanced Technologies Center in Pittsburgh.

Together, the teams will focus on the development of key long-term technologies that advance Uber’s mission to providing reliable transportation.
