These 10 Careers Have Been Predicted To Be Irreplaceable By AI.
A few years back, I watched an Indian movie that displayed a lot of technology which seemed impossible at the time.
I think the title was Krrish, where Hrithik Roshan and Priyanka Chopra played the lead role.
There were so many inventions displayed in that movie and even though some of them can never be possible, some have become a reality as we speak.
The 2006 movie showcased the use of eye and heart scan to unlock a massive machine that could see the future and when I saw that scene, I thought it would never happen.
I was wrong.
At that time, a lot of us didn’t think touchscreen devices could ever exist, but here we are, unlocking our phones with our eyes, faces, and fingers.
In case you didn’t get the memo, researchers have developed a new authentication system that doesn’t require any of your interaction, as simply being near your device is more than enough.
This doesn’t sound like a good idea to me though but hey, they did the unimaginable anyway.
“Logging-in and logging-out are tedious”, says Wenyao Xu, an assistant professor at the University of Buffalo’s Department of Computer Science and Engineering.
The aforementioned genius and other computer scientists at the University of Buffalo, New York, have developed a new Cardiac-Scan Authentication system that uses the shape and size of your heart as a unique biometric to identify and authenticate you.
If you’re worried about the challenges this poses to your health, here’s what Xu had to say;
“We are living in a Wi-Fi surrounding environment every day, and the new system is as safe as those Wi-Fi devices,” he said. “The reader is about 5 milliwatts, even less than 1 percent of the radiation from our smartphones.”
Hence, the signal strength is much less than Wi-Fi.
In addition, the system continually monitors your heart to make sure no one else has used your computer while you were away. This is absolutely secured because, in all honesty, no two people with identical hearts have ever been found.
Dr. Wenyao Xu also added that the invention may eventually be used for smartphones and at airport screening barricades.
So, since this generation is so obsessed with privacy, our various devices will soon not operate if a different person is standing in front of it.
If you think Google is all about answering your most ridiculous and mundane questions, you’re wrong.
Waymo is a Google self-driving car that began in 2009 and up until now, the technology has self-driven over 8 million miles.
Also, Uber has partnered with Volvo and Toyota to develop a fleet of self-driving cars and have spent over $280 million dollars to develop them. Although this technology works, it recently killed a pedestrian in Arizona, United States.
Well, the self-driving car is a good invention but I’m worried it won’t be accepted wholeheartedly in Nigeria.
We all know how our village people can be, manipulating our hands while driving is easy for them, how much more a self-driving car.
If you haven’t heard about Bixby, it’s a replica of Siri, just a Samsung version.
Who knew my iPhone could one day recognize my voice and even send an “I hate you” text to my ex-boyfriend?
The fun part is, these things actually recognize your voice and even though they’re not as smart as we want them to be “yet”, there’s an 80% possibility that they could one day grow legs and move from Berger to Ajah without zero help.
If you find your current career on this list, you can put up a smile, but don’t forget that things change and this list might just change a few years from now.
- Chief Executive Officers
- Software Developers
- Event Planners
- Clergy Men
- Graphic Designers
- Fashion Designers
P.S, the above list is quite extensive. I only mentioned this few, as they are the most obvious in today’s world.

If the AI catastrophe consumes every white collar job, these fields are safe. Jobs that involve genuine creativity and require an individual to ideate cannot be replaced.
AI inventions can probably do some work with writing prompts, title suggestions and automated social media messages, but they can’t write this blog post, a book, or a movie.
Not to brag, but a robot can’t do my job.
In addition, emotional intelligence can never be understood by robots and humans will always lead Robots, not the other way round. In other words, we’d always have leaders in form of CEO’S or the likes and psychologists will always be humans, not robots.
Go ahead, conduct your research. You might be safe, but if you find out you might be replaced a few years from now, it’s probably time for a career switch.
Anyways, I’d publish another article soon that would emphasize careers that will be replaced by AI.
I can put my money on this, that list will be longer.
