Those automation things which you are saying also fall in the same category I was mentioning. Even that McDonald automatic ordering is in itself a big task not menial by any means.
So yes, automated order taking machine. But who is going to cook? (yes, there might reach a point, but it is still largely going to be humans. Even the most high class industry doesn't have robots to cook. Then there are the machines themselves. You can only program them to be self repairing to some extent. You are going to need some kind of human interactions.
Number of years ago, the amount of engineer's, scientist's and doctors were quite few compared to what we have today and they made did with them and even today even though available in excess quantity are available, they are still easily able to find job. nd this is not just one thing, we already went through this once during industrial revolution and even though there were difficult times, we came out of it good enough.
Also free has to come from somewhere, it's not gonna magically appear (taxes in your case). Then we would have a nice war between working class and the leecher class.
And then again, we indirectly have something like this. Salaries are higher than what they used to be 20 years and we do have basic stuff is a hell lot better than what they had back in the day, so that in a way itself is a rise in a minimum wage. But that is again, only if you work. Again, nothing is given free.
The bottom line is things are going to change and we will need to adapt to those situations. And the thing is we have that ability. We also have the ability to not adjust and just whine about it (though eventually you will still lose in the long run).
Now, let me reply to some of the stuff you said. The above post was somewhat general.
Most jobs that humans do could definitely be automated.
Humans have freedom of choice in built in their systems. Automation/AI doesn't. Even if you program it to have freedom of choice, I doubt it will ever achieve our level. Would we even allow it? By our very own nature no.
As for actors, FF XV Kingsglaive movie is what you are taking about. That is pretty much the future. Yet, that took 2 years. And all those action scenes and acting? Motion captures. Real human movements. Voices.
Robots for surgery? Hmm. You know better about that.
All in all, I see only menial jobs being automated in the industry which would effect the human jobs. If you are making your living taking order's at McD, yes you are fucked. But if you can do that, you can also do a lot more better than that as well (yes, that does require a lot of hard work, I am definitely not denying that).
