Accountability and subsequently trust is something AI won't be able to provide.
Medium & Long term investment horizons = more volatility and uncertainty, market becomes non-optimal; hard to model.

AI could be used to optimize & speed up workflows for PMs.

Given that the numerous variables that lead to successful and profitable investing, a self learning automation that never shows up late, never sick, never demands a raise or a vacation, willing to work 24/7, able to consider complex situations, can calculate probabilities instantly and accurately, and communicate electronically , etc., an AI takeover of investment jobs seems inevitable.
