Vernon (Low) says
AI is not going to be strong and powerful enough to make such important decisions for businesses with any type of analyst jobs.

Firstly, AI can not spot any key details in any sort of data given to them, and the likelihood of making mistakes is very high when AI stuffs out

Secondly, governments are already making laws and regulations to restrict the potential strength or potential "takeover" towards AI, so the likelihood of unemployment from AI is very low.

Well Analysis is more about looking at numbers and comparing them against previous years and against numbers under other spending heads and determining whether a particular item is poised for growth or not. And accordingly - after this math is made - connecting the dots - for example if the sector under question being "Education" can be peppered with comments from eminent fieldsmen in that domain and accordingly arrive at what is in store.
