The former tennis player rubbished the idea advanced droids would gain the ability to possess “human instinct” after a report by firm Price Waterhouse Cooper (PWC) claimed up to around 30 per cent of existing UK jobs could be automated by the 2030s.
Speaking on his Sunday morning show, he played down the research.
He said: “10 million jobs over the next 10 to 20 years could be at threat from automation, and yet I would contend that it is not going to happen.
"Because I am the one who is spending the money in, for instance, hospitality, retail, transport and manufacturing."
Andrew Castle said robots could not replace "human instinct"
Call me old-fashioned, but I still believe there's still a place for human instinct
Castle argued there would be specific sectors which simply could not become automated.
He said: "Well, [in] manufacturing, we can all imagine a big robot making things, and putting things together, and shifting them through an assembly line. We can see that.
"But on the subject of transport? I don't like these driverless cars, I don't like driverless trains, I want people, I want human instinct, I want their eyes, their ears, and really, most notably, I want instinct.
"Because human instinct is not talked about and you cannot build instinct into a computer, and you know for instance when you're driving along, and you get a sense that something isn't right, that is based upon your past experience and your exposure to those situations.

CHEF: A start-up called Moley Robotics has invented a 100% automated, intelligent robot chef. The cooking automaton can learn recipes and techniques, whip up gourmet meals and even clean up after itself.

"A robot is not going to have that programmed in. There is no chance in the world, if something is slightly out of the ordinary, a robot cannot see it.”
He remained pessimistic about a future without “human instinct” with the research showing transport and manufacturing were at the biggest risk.
He added: “I don't want a robot driving my car, thank you. But then you might well say that actually it's human error that causes a lot of accidents and I get that.
"Call me old-fashioned, but I still believe there's still a place for human instinct."
John Hawksworth, chief economist at PWC said no industry would be “entirely immune” from advances in artificial intelligence.
He said: "Manual and routine tasks are more susceptible to automation, while social skills are relatively less automatable.
"That said, no industry is entirely immune from future advances in robotics and AI.”
