Healthcare is always safe and growing, even though it is already a very popular career choice for young people. Technology is part of the reason we've become such a service-career oriented society (the other reason, cheap imports).
People who think the lack of flying cars contradicts the people who make strong predictions about robots don't see the difference between improvements in automation/efficiency vs. new kinds of technology. Really, the technology already exists for robots to take over, all that needs to be done is some tweaking and cost reduction. A robot lawnmower costs about $1500, when it costs $100, every home owner will have one. Or consider, farming, when illegal immigrants make sub-minimum wage, a robot picker that does a so-so job just isn't worth it - but that will change.
:D From the stories my dh has to tell they are going to have to do a lot more than just simply tweak the robots. Your talking about completely redesigning the things. Oh well, it creates really good job security for him.:thumbsup:
