And @Mr. Roques, I think there will be... highly specialized companies leveraging ubiquitous hardware and software for very fast, almost reactive product development. 

The company of old--that lasted decades or a century or more--is a thing of the past. Companies will come and go much more rapidly, but they will come much more rapidly, like spring flowers.

I agree with you, there will be highly-paid jobs, but less per company. We should aim for more companies.

I look at it this way. The same way that hackers are always a step ahead of the security pros, this way the security pros always have a task to handle one way or another. I feel like the cat & mouse game of technology will identically always require humans.

Agreed, but for how long? The optimist in me believes that humans, somehow, will always remain one intellectual step ahead of the technologies they create. But then sometimes I'm not sure sure. We've tied the world together with the Internet. Now we're tying in sensors to that massive infrastracture and we don't have a sense for all the consequences.

Yes, there are more well educated than people without education, unemployment crisis is in every cornet in this planet. Companies cannot handle anymore this situation, even governments cannot help. I don't know how we can surpass this and when .....

@nemos,

The job market is also governed by the law of supply and demand. Do you think that there are more engineers available than what is actually needed?

@syedzunair,

Somebody will still have to operate the devices and interpret results but machines are already being prepared for that as well. There are some jobs that may not be taken over by "intellingent agents" for sure, but most of the decision making processes in the enterprise and in the market will likely be handled by computer systems in a very near future.

pocharle:

You are absolutely correct. The human factor cannot be neglected and neither replaced. Someone will still be required to run the devices and interpret results.

There is precedent for many things but there still needs to be someone to control these machines, whether it's the live intelligence factor or map out the processes.
