    If a master painter can be replaced, chances are you can too.

      My job, by definition, can't be replaced by machines.

      My job involves evaluating them.

        Machines will be evaluating machines sooner than we want to admit.

          Nope... machines can't replicate, let alone create, human thought. Not even close.

          If they made a machine that did my job, someone would have to evaluate that machine. But, we are nowhere near being able to have a machine do that kind of work.

            Evaluating a machine does not necessarily need "human thought."  If it is a technical aspect, a computer will eventually be able to do it.

              My job specifically applies to evaluating a machine from a human standpoint. Any machine that attempted to evaluate the first machine would only be doing the job of the first machine a second time.

              It cannot be replaced by a machine without perfect A.I.

                I hope you are correct.

                  Don't worry, there will always be jobs.

                  History has been full of people figuring out ways to do more work with less people. What that does is free up human capital to be used on other things. It's the reason why we are able to have so many nice, awesome things, instead of spending most of our time trying to grow food.

                  Innovation and efficiency creates more wealth.

    The machine would cost more than I do.

    That is craftsmanship not the creative mind. A camera is a machine.

      I don't think that limitation will hold very much longer.

        I do. Artificial intelligence is really still some way off.

    A computer can only create combinations of memory, which in this case would be already created art. Would have to put it on wheels and send it out into the world for original content. How would it make choices as to what was art? Would it not have to feel to satisfy the feeling art appreciator?

    If a machine took my job I guess I would retrain, to learn how to build that machine.  Or, come to think of it, how to destroy it....

      Haha.  Destroying it is a good answer.

    Unlikely. I am a technical writer. It's my job to bring the complex language down to the "human" level; that is, everything I write about, must be understandable by someone with an 8th grade education. Being a human being certainly helps with that.

    I don't suspect technology will develop to the point of replacing me within my lifetime. If it did, well, we would all be taken over by Cylons at that point.

    Machines dont create new ideas , they work based on an exiting program and idea . So its all so simple ... Think. And generate a new plan to promote the company through your position, even the machines cant do dat
