I read this exact same article ten years ago (roughly). I’m sure this exact same article was written ten years before that, and before that. It’s written in true “I was made fun of too much in high school” language. People who can solve problems will always be a requirement of the planet. You come off a tremendous amount like this is an ideal reality for you because of some prior circumstance. If you had sourced even a single legitimate fact it might be easier to take this for anything other than insecurity, but you didn’t. This is an anti-establishment piece because of an insecurity you have. If you were actually a “data scientist” as your bio claims you’d understand that while you can automate modeling systems (Auto ML is not new, so I don’t understand why you think it is) you can’t plan for the incumbent issues that grow from outside of domain tasks. If the next frontier of DS really is transfer learning, we need more people interested in this field. Not less, as your post seems to be getting at. Please keep your insecurities to yourself in the future, and drop the dissuading readers from pursuing and important field where you fell short.
