>>7787289 Most important today? Depends on your definition doesn't it? If by important you mean market demand, market value then I would say it's probably CS, mainly because of Big Data and IoT(Muh algorithms). Big Data has the potential to influence everything, from medicine, chemistry, engineering, to psychology, sociology, etc., if only we have good algorithms.
The other kind of important is subjective. I still like math the most and think It most important to me.
Yes there is, they are already working on that. Using paid codemonkeys to automate coding in some and given time, maybe all situations. Corporations don't want to pay for you if they can get an ATM to do it for them.

Automation will end up covering transportation, and pretty much all the blue collar areas, on up to many white collar professions and even some of the creative industries.

Where there is the will to make money, there will eventually be a way. STEM jobs are replaceable. It is only a matter of time. The question is, however, when automation gets to that level, where does it leave humanity?
