Peak finance looks as if it has come and gone

In an article in the Chicago Tribune, Prof. Noah Smith of SUNY Stony Brook and a Bloomberg View columnist asks the question that has hit many of industries: will automation change the human employment of Finance?

Is your job going the way of the Dodo bird? Will you be replaced by an algorithm? If so, what jobs will be created in the void?

I don't see my job going the way of the Dodo bird. I gathered from the article that the issue is with people employed predominately by banks, wealth management firms, and other such companies. Employees working for large companies that trade in derivatives and similar investments might want to be concerned.

It is something to be concerned with overall because of the chances of the market filling with well-qualified workers who can take over a role like I'm in with their experience.

However, I'm not updating my resume and worrying too much with it currently.

I am curious if others on here think I should be, and why.

Anyone willing to answer that for me too while answering Wayne's?
