This question has been asked many times, and not only on Kew. The answer is no. The development of technology leads to the simplification of completely non-creative professions. Automation at all levels is already leading, and in the future will only intensify in the areas of "mechanical labor" and "low skill". In simple terms, progress threatens primarily cleaners and plumbers, not artists and architects.

Moreover, it is precisely technological progress, the introduction of neural networks, automation that leads to the need for creative professions. Because new tools will replace "routine" actions, "wash out" low-qualified employees from all spheres, but even the maintenance of these tools and systems will require control from highly qualified specialists. And for creative professions new opportunities will open up and their demand will grow.

People have faced this throughout their history. Let's take a less intelligent example. You all know where the marathon came from? A person generally spent his whole life to deliver a message quickly enough over a distance of 42 km. Since then, humanity, long before the invention of what we are doing now, has invented other ways of delivering a message - from pigeons to the telegraph. And for some reason they still run. There is also a story, I really like it, because it shows what remains when the dust has settled. History of chess. In 1997, they came up with a machine that plays chess better than champions, beat Kasparov. It's been 20 years now - have they stopped playing chess? Have the children stopped going to the clubs of young chess players? Well no. Although everyone knows very well that no champion can withstand a car. What has changed in people? They calmly looked at this fact. Moreover, high-class players are grateful for the car. They say: “What I see in their parties, I would never see people in their parties.”

Let's take another story. Not about automation, but about mechanization. At the beginning of the last century, the great Russian poet Sergei Yesenin wrote: "What a pity that steel cavalry replaced live horses." And it was colossal because the people who fed humanity disappeared as a class. Now in our country there are 3-5% of farmers, and once there was a majority. Then there was the industrial revolution - in general, I understand where all this insult comes from. Now the middle class is in the same precarious position. The same middle class that is the backbone of society. Yes, he will become as needed as the peasants were needed at one time. But, I think, when it becomes clear that a much more talented algorithm writes instead of a journalist, I think the journalist will come up with something to do. Like everyone else.
