I don’t think that an AI will take every house details into account. Plus, this job is based on the communication between the customer and the interior designer, which are two humans. Furthermore, the process of a typical project is a little bit long. The customer and the designer often go in different stores with the customer in order to project the customer into his new house. Finally, the customer gonna be afraid of the idea of talking to a robot, and especially trusting in him one hundred percent.

Robots could take this job, but not in any near future, since AIs can't even see the image they create, so it could be taken when they're able to at least see and calculate the space on the room and organize the ornaments correctly

Because it depends on the innovation and the development of Automation taking a lot of factors into consideration. From creativity, to functionality, to circulation etc..

it would be very hard to have a robot do interior design since it needs to have originality and things need to be precise and tweaked it would be hard to have a robot doing it since they have no depth perception

AI still can not think 3D design and figure out a ideal 3d space

An AI agent can design a living room or kitchen. You can select your style, automatic scan of the room, and budget information is enough for designing a space.

I think some customers want to write their preferences to a website and upload photos if what they want their face to look like and in 20 years, AI could do that.

But human interior designers might become more expensive and rare in the field. Also not everyone can design their homes in a simulation or use a website that can create it. Maybe they'll take the results to the designer as a template or vice versa.

Interior designers do use developing programs that are very detailed and 3d. Maybe these programs can stay unknown or be only for professionals and this way the profession might be saved.

There is an experiment on a software robot to learn chess. It tried many times until it developed its level and defeated the global champion in this game and another also about making robotic albums when artificial intelligence begins

Evolution could occupy a job like this in the distant future

In 2030, I think AI will do interior VR model prediction, numerical calculation, fabrication, layout, demol and combine with interior called ‘ITterior’.

Human will still plan idea and demonstrate sensuous and subjective sense. This job would not vanished if AI becomes common.

Design objects and applications that cannot be inspired, but they cannot be 100% copied and transferred to a new space.
