Real world manufacturing and A.I.

Working in a manufacturing sector with metal machining as the primary function at the facility I am currently located, it becomes annoying hearing stock pundits state (with absolute certainty) that these manufacturing jobs will be replaced in a matter of years with A.I. As if... we have problems with simple automation due to tight tolerances. Human monitoring and interaction are required even if the machines are running properly because the machines can't predict how different parts will match up because there are too many variables. Only a few of us can consistently recognize how each of the machines will behave and it's difficult enough to get a skilled person to understand more than the production line they're assigned to.
