AI and IT (along with other job issues)

As much as I agree that AI systems could take over IT jobs and other white-collar work spaces in the future, it's a question that isn't just about cost - though I am sure that for many boardrooms, that will be the magic word.

I still believe that humans should be in key points of any organizational/work structure, just to make sure that we have a human set of eyes. You can call it the start of discrimination against post-human life forms, but right now, until we can properly "grow" an AI to be fully sentient and more human (in the positive sense only, please!) then I have massive apprehensions about going full-AI in certain organizational positions and roles.
