I know that (at least some) government and military jobs will always require humans/people to occupy them (such as President, Prime Minister, et cetera), but which (other) jobs will be the last ones to see the humans/people occupying them replaced with machines/robots?

Very interesting subject! I'm thinking police, paramedics, firefighters and coastguards. Basically anybody that has to deal with emergency situations. Maybe by 2500 we will have found a way to 'robotise' these jobs, but they're going nowhere soon.

These are good candidates for being some of the last jobs to be mechanized/robotised. However, what about think tank employees, artists/painters, academics, and film/movie directors and actors/actresses?

Many things that require a lot of creativity like artists, designers (for video games,clothing, etc.), architects, writers, TV show hosts, and other stuff like that.

How about non-government politicians? I think they're kept pretty safe by the state.

All the jobs related to security and health care will be pretty much taken care of in the future.All the jobs related to maintaining too, since everything will be automated, like water, sewage and electricity maintaining. (thinking SimCity here).Oh, and let's not forget mining and building.

Artifical Intelligence will (and have) replace first muscle, then memory, then imagination (low boundary for AGI?), then reason (high boundary for AGI? Turing Test?).


My mind has been torn into Oblivion, is there a way to tear that too? Reach into the Oblivion, and through Zen, tear the Universe anew.

Anything having to do with art or imagination.

I always imagined the future as a time of more reason, empathy, and peace, not less. It's time for a change.

I would place reason before imagination.

@qfeys: Hmm. I thought about it for a while, but I think the definitions of imagination and reason made it more clear to me: Imagination: the faculty of imaging or of forming mental images or concepts of what is not actually present to the senses.

Reason: a basis or cause, as for some belief, action, fact, event,

 

It is definitely up for debate which way will be tackled first, but I think an AI with imagination could exist easily without consciousness, but justifying one's own existence could likely require reflexive consciousness.
