Doctors, lawyers, Ships Captains, Airline pilots, Engineers, Bankers, in fact Universities will become obsolete as Humans become redundant in the workplace as we knew it. etc you will ALL be out of a job...
No matter how smart you think you are, with your bits of paper hanging on the wall behind your desk, you're no match for the HUGE knowledge pool that AI can sift through online, 1000's of the latest supplementary papers read, that were published globally in the last week, in a matter of minutes that would take a human weeks if not months.
From what I have seen in the progress of human pilot-less, full AI automated cockpits aimed at commercial aviation, another human occupation that will likely not exist commercially in 20 to 30 years.In fact, it wont .
I can also see that in military / tactical applications, AI and the automated fighter pilot will be a very real eventuality, and why not, it will out fly a human to the maximum performance of the air frame capability, well beyond a humans physical limitations.
If you think the world is going to get a whole lot more clinical and sterile, you'd be right...
But Im curious to know, is the direction we are headed motivated by the worst most vile greed that humans have ever managed, or is Google and their hippy mates behind it all, the ultimate Utopian wet dream, where machines do all the work, we all get a cushy livable wages and just exist ?
Doesn't sound very fulfilling nor do I think we'll all be singing Kumbaya anytime soon... We're destined to make the world as miserable as possible for as many people, except the rich special ones... Until... it becomes acceptable to KILL the special ones and claw back what has been lost in the quality of life over the last 50 years.

I personally think certain subjects will loose value, but at the end of the day, someone has to make the machines to take jobs away from the humans.Doctors, lawyers, Ships Captains, Airline pilots, Engineers, Bankers, in fact Universities will become obsolete as Humans redundant in the workplace as we knew it. etc will ALL be out of a job...
The death of formal education, esp in sciences and maths is not going to happen for the next generation or two. Drama, music, history, law and a whole lot more can be codified.
By the way, what happens to the demand side if everyone is unemployed?
Auto pilot for 99% of the journey with remote drone control for the last little bit if needed. I would feel safer having a specialist at the airport land the pane than a pilot that has probably only landed at the place a few times.
Aren't Sweden centralizing the whole countries air traffic control to a shed in some industrial estate?
Most big airlines are flown on autopilot for 90%+ of the flight already.
And the latency to Bangalore.Communication links just are not reliable enough to guarantee real time signaling and control in severely adverse weather.
