To me that's a very interesting question, since i don't follow everything
technical in this list.

I have some current clue about this : for instance just the internet is
getting better for formation in technical fields. One good web site
could/might "take the job" of many lecturers/teachers/professors... And
it's obvious everybody will connect to the best servers, so even the other
servers will be out of work.

I think about the medical doctors also (recently they say there is a
shortage). If more automated devices are used.

Concerning the food industry, if people start uploading, no need for wheat,
proteins, etc ?
