As technology advances, it is natural to wonder about the future of specific jobs and industries. While some professions may be more susceptible to automation than others, many fields will likely remain safe from being taken over by AI.
In this post, we will explore some examples of professions that are not at risk of being replaced by robots or AI, according to a few favorite Redditors.
1. Elementary School Teacher
“Therapists are pretty safe for now. Yes, for some people, talking to an AI might be helpful, but for true talk-therapy, you’re not going to get human-level insight any time soon.” said one.
While therapists cannot be entirely replaced by AI, many apps and bots offer these services. It will be interesting to see how it pans out. But one thing is for sure, AI tools will make therapy more accessible.

3. Athletes and Sportsperson
“Athletes. I’m not interested in watching robots playing basketball. Same with live theater. If I’m going to the opera it better damn well be a human or cool ass alien singing and dancing. I can listen to the music at home on Spotify.” shared a user.
What do you think?
4. AI Engineers
This one is obvious. We will always need an engineer to advance and optimize the technology.

5. Theatre, Movies, etc.
“I mentioned barstaff for very similar reasons. Both deal with maddening lunatics completely driven by poor impulse control and with poor decision-making skills who need to sit on a corner and calm down once in a while.” a user said.
9. Horse Trainer
10. Dog Groomer
12. Religious Worker
13. Lawyers and Judges
14. Event Planner
AI cannot replace event planners, as it lacks the ability to understand and execute the intricacies of human emotions, creativity, and spontaneous problem-solving which are integral in planning and executing successful events.
The human touch, which is essential for creating a memorable experience, is something that AI is not yet capable of providing.
15. Professional Cuddlers
Let’s be honest, if you hire a professional cuddler, you don’t want a robot there.
