What jobs, in your opinion, could never be done by computers/robots, no matter the level of technology?
There's probably nothing that can't be done with unlimited technology (as you proposed). Even human beings could be considered biological machines, and if technology were extended far enough we could easily end up with biocybernetics like Blade Runner type machines.
But keeping things within some limit of reasonable human technology and progression, I would think that "Actors and Actresses" would be a very difficult field to infiltrate. A "robot" would have to imitate a human with near perfect precision and be able to replicate different personalities and convince an audience of its "human-ness". That combination is going to be very difficult in physical appearance, movement, behavior, expression, language and understanding. A machine that could do that would be essentially indistinguishable from a human being, and if we run into that, it's not jobs that we're going to have to worry about but our dominance and survival as a species.
