김명주 (Low) says
Evaluating a person's psychological state is a field that requires an advanced training process. This is because it is not just dependent on the amount of data, but the analysis and evaluation are carried out on the premise of understanding the individuality of each person. Although some parts can be replaced by AI, the profession itself is difficult to replace easily because it requires a comprehensive insight into people.

I'm a graduate of Neuropsychology specialization, and I realize how important for neurological patients is the compassion, detailed observation and connection of sometimes nuance in human behaviors and their emotions - to diagnose and genuinely help. It all depends on how fast our understanding of the brain and readings of its cues will take over and translate to a precise diagnosis. And how more valuable rehabilitation conducted by a real human being will be comparing to a humanoids.
