Marketing Managers are the backbone of the advertising industry. They are in the front line, doing their dirty job, being under-payed and underestimated.
No robot will be able to replace them, but even that will not lead to a salary raise.

Cultural industries are changing all the time and consumers' demands and behaviour are less likely assumed by computer.

Execution and optimization of marketing will absolutely get easier. So, having smaller but more powerful marketing teams is likely the trend. However, no amount of automation can account for brand connection and internal budget pivots. Acquisition is information for strategic decision making across numerous department and growth goals. You could lose a COO/CFO sooner than a marketer.

Because you need to take into consideration variables but also emotional intelligence to define a communication aspect that will be relevant to a final user/client when receiving a message from a brand. However most likely AI and/or robots will be the base line for interpretation of all variables, data, trends, etc that will be used to take decisions on whether a communication is more relevant and impactful to a target vs. a different one.

I completely disagree.
(Any) Marketing can be automated. Customers behaviors and segmentation can be done by AI within seconds. Email marketing campaign etc. ALL CAN BE AUTOMATED.

Some aspects of the executions can be automated but you can't automate the strategic decisions to bond the customer with the brand. Content creation and most of the creative work can't be automated. Media planning and digital ad campaigns are kinda automated right now but in the future maybe there will be no need for media planners.

Because you are a Marketing Manager, you know in a 100% how to perform your job, you know everything about the field, and you concluded that an Algorithm can replace your job?

Next time, base your opinion on your knowledge, if you don't work in a certain field, be quiet
