    Realtors sure have been put out of business.

    Neither of these jobs are creativity based. They are both rote memorization based. Very different!

    Doctors should be a little bit secure. Even if the mind power aspects of the job are done by robots, doctors can become nurses, who do the physical aspects of the job that cannot be automated. Oh course that means a depressing pay cut, but it’s worth noting that nurses still make an above average salary.

    Robots would be ideal even in some jobs that are considered highly creative.
    Example: press secretary
    I am not programmed to respond to that…
    I am not programmed to respond to that…
    Press 1 for main menu…
    Goodbye.
