The only jobs we won’t lose to machines are jobs that are rooted in emotion. Jobs that require sympathy, empathy, respect, warmth, tenderness, and love.
When a robot says I love you. Even when the robot is made to look human – you don’t believe it because you know someone programmed it say that. The intention isn’t their own. And a robot is too predictable and perfect to connect like another human being.
What we really need for the future is a way to overcome our animal instincts of greed, arrogance, and pride. If machines can help us with that, the world will be a better place.
