If you can be replaced by a robot you deserve to lose your job. Robots SHOULD be doing these types of jobs.

a reply to: Metallicus
I enjoy reading your comments in the threads and very much agree with you a lot of the time, but I must say I couldn't disagree with you more on this point.
I'll openly admit that Metallicus' post was difficult to digest... but is he wrong?
I think about my own position. My job/career is a mix of technical knowledge, the ability to bring different (often opposing) parties to the table to come to an agreement, negotiating costs and schedules all while dealing with local communities. I KNOW that AI is coming for my job at some point. Based on my employer, the type of work I do and some other factors, I know that it is not too likely that the robots will come prior to me retiring in about twenty-five years.
Truth is ANY job can be done by a robot.
