Do you agree with Bill Gates?
"Based on data Gates has collected, the iconic tech entrepreneur and Microsoft co-founder said people with three backgrounds will be the most in-demand in the coming years: sciences, engineering and economics."
So what happens to writers (bearing in mind that AI can now write a novel sufficiently well enough not to be differentiated from a living human being)?
Writers may need to perform an additional career; but, scientists, engineers, and economists can also use writing in their work -- However, fiction writers may feel the lack of demand more than do other writers, except for historical fiction writers, perhaps. History is a science and we can learn from fiction, no matter what field it envelopes.
Some professions have to be at the top, but that doesn't mean that no other professions are not going to be on the demand list.
What other jobs do you think will be in demand? Architects? (Buildings still have to be built, but they can be designed by AI). Genomics (gene splicing)? AI can now perform better operations than doctors.
Is AI going to clean the bed pans, and all the other human tasks. I would like to see AI replace lawyers and judges.
Yes. They are capable of cleaning bed pans and making beds. You should take a look at what they are capable of doing. Quite apart from that, they won't replace all jobs. According to the Pentagon, 80% of human jobs will be replaced within 20 years.
What does the Pentagon know about the private sector

A lot. It believes that Climate Change is the biggest threat...
Can't argue with someone who is a climate change denier and who doesn't understand the scope of the Pentagon.
Where was the Pentagon on 911? Where is the pentagon on the ISIL problem? These are the prime functions of the pentagon and they failed. If Climate Change was a real issue, the world would ground all Aircraft, and bombings.
Generally when one talks about careers as being "most in-demand" they're talking about being able to gain meaningful employment with an opportunity to earn a high income if one has a college degree in those particular areas.
Someone in college majoring in education, creative writing, or art appreciation might have a difficult time paying back their student loans if they graduate and find there is "no demand" for their discipline of study.
In the U.S. it's not uncommon for those who graduate from college with a degree that is not in demand to find themselves working as wait staff in restaurants or other jobs which they could have had without going to college.
"Demand" implies there is a shortage of available qualified talent.
With regard to writing a bestselling novel, movie script, hit song, or excelling in the performance arts....They're usually more people attempting to break into those areas than there is a "demand". The U.S. has been importing engineers from India or other nations for years in an attempt to address the high demand.
Place one tiny ad looking for actors/models to audition you'll get a line circling the block even if you're promising low pay!
Sadly most (creative people) are viewed as being "a dime a dozen" until they find a way to rise above the heap of other "want to be famous people".
I agree with Bill Gates regarding careers that will be "in demand".
