What are some jobs AI will never replace? Posted on April 28, 2023 by Anonymous What are some jobs AI will never replace?
That's a strong word, son.
Politicians, you can guess why. Definitely not because they aren't capable of that.
All politicians will soon be replaced by our AI Overlords

isn't even wrong
nepotism bullshit jobs will remain forever
professional athletes. stuff with a regulatory moat will last longer than stuff without, but will still fall eventually. professional athletes literally can't be replaced because testing and showcasing human ability is the entire point.
The only thing professional sports showcase, specially in the case of simplistic games like most in the olympics, is the medical industry's ability to produced better performance enhancements. Using robots would only change what kind of engineers are responsible for the show.
Besides, if men in drag can replace women in female sports, where the whole point is displaying peak female athleticism, why can't robots participate in male sports? It would be even more popular than the chess playing AI of the 90s, and that's reason enough for it to happen.
Dont worry Anon, your job of "NEET" will never be replaced
Everyone will be neets soon
Soldering? The precise machines designed exactly for the job constantly fuck up, and I have to fix the fuckups. Realistically, we're still making electronics until we nuke ourselves, and likely after.
>The precise machines designed exactly for the job constantly fuck up, and I have to fix the fuckups.
Some manufacturers get it right, some don't. I think it has to do with the level of control over the placement of components and the environment, but I'm a software engineer so I don't know jack shit about this. I do know that the company that made up our custom hardware for us did a very good job, and they weren't ever a chink sweatshop. Good production engineering I guess.
Yup, this is a big one alongside welding. Machine vision just ain't good enough to tell a good weld/solder from a bad one, and on top of that you need a robot capable of navigating 3D space effectively depending on the environment (especially for shit like underwater welding).
I don't doubt that one day we'll figure it out, but the issue is complex enough that it will take quite a while to actually happen.
Miners in the Congo or really any manual hard labor job that takes place in the 3rd world. The problem is that AI and robotics assume that humans won't be hostile to the machine while it does it's work. Unless you want to fork over more money to build a robot that can also fight humans trying to scrap it for spare parts to sell vs some disposable 3rd guy who will work for dirt cheap the economics can't justify it automating that part .
Someone's gotta make sure all the bots are turned on.
AI costs money.
>jobs AI will never replace?
Child care workers, nursing home workers -- anything that's literally "hands on".
>Current iteration and "definition" that is basically just language models
Any subject matter expert and those who understand what they are doing to a degree that they don't devolve into symbolism. If you can draw an eye without drawing an "eye" then you're safe.
>Possible future definitions
Depends on society.
I'm sure an AI can kill the elderly just as efficiently as a nursing home worker can.

I think they'll do worse at making them suffer as much as possible though. Walking the line between neglect and pretending to work is a bit more difficult than it sounds.
>inb4 AI waifus
People will always pay extra for the real deal
Who would collect the money?
Insane homeless drug addict.
My favorite job
Hate this stupid meme. Why does an astronaut hold a gun and say "always has been". Literal non sequior
Anyways OP, live concerts. You can't get an AI to play death metal on a guitar and have the performace be good enough for people
cocksucking and making BOT posts for the express purpose of data gathering
looks like you'll stay employed
How do I get a Steve job?
Fox News anchor. They would need to develop AS for that.
economist here, I got a few suggestions but OP prolly left the thread so I'm going to say this
you probably won't find legitimate answers, there's no such thing as free lunch, you'll see lots of people going muh hur dur nothing is safe from AI to the other end of you'll never be able to replace the power of the human spirit with little to nothing inbetween with actual thought and this is because the people who figured it out, aren't going to tell you. This is the billion dollar question people want to know as everyone adapts to the new landscape of work with AI.

For the last time that is not what bus drivers are called!
lol nope, thats a low bar -- a series of simple triggers and easily identified space of visual, aural, kinesthetic, and olfactory factors that can be manipulated
Any job where you have to deal with unexpected things. If by AI you mean current "AI" that just looks stuff up and regurtitates it.
Human experience workers.
Anything that needs human to human contact to be 'authentic'. Everything else could eventually be automated.
I think the hysteria about everything getting replaced by AI is dumb anyway. 99% of office work could be automated without the use of AI. Using AI just makes automation easier.
Keep saying this and you will make it a reality because you will convince other people who do not have a strong enough technical understanding of x that x makers can be replaced by ChatGPT.
most skilled trades will likely always need a few humans to be there to physically do the work
i just can't imagine how you'd ever develop an autonomous robot that could replace a millwright, or a pipefitter
how can you bros live on the tech board and be so clueless, half the non joke suggestions are already possible to implement all it take is for Mr. Goldberg to take the AI pill and fire the wagies, this won't happen overnight because of backlash but it'll be a domino effect thing
Law, politics, and anything else where a human needs to assume liability for something in the legal system.
>95% of blue collar jobs
>anything that requires moving product would require robotics as well which is hard to develop/maintain/repair
>on site engineering
This and anything that is being done under so precarious conditions that robots would take too long to pay themselves to be economically viable, like cheap manual labor from developing countries.
bosses will still want a personal sex toy to bring around during commutes to outstation / oversea meetings and they want to relieve their sexual needs so they get post fap clarity when making important business decisions
AI won't replace programmers. Using chatGPT is exactly like tard wrangling. It's a lot like the guy rain man was based on.
holy cope of the century
meaningless jobs. like acting.
MAKING SOVLFULL MUSIC AND ART
My country, Germany, always had a proud blue collar culture. As a blue collar worker, you are well respected here. My grandfather became a multi-millionaire by building up a roofing company. He was one of the first people in his city to have a telephone and a car.
I am content with living of bürgergeld (welfare) but should that at one point not be available to me any more I will not become a roofer but kill myself. Have a good day.
This picture would have been way better with the room at the end of 2001.
The real answer if talking about "never": the jobs that need machines that are too expensive, capitalism always takes the cheapest route
