Perhaps a more interesting question would be, what jobs cannot be automated, short of the invention of Turing-test-capable strong artificial intelligence? (One of those things that, like nuclear fusion power plants, seems always to be ten years away.) I'm thinking lawyers, doctors, engineers, scientists, journalists, probably even accountants. And jobs requiring face-to-face customer service or hands-on work -- a live waiter is part of any dining experience more elegant than fast food, and a massage chair cannot compare with a live massage therapist. And it will be a long time before prostitutes face serious competition from sexbots.
