Ja.  There might still be people, even if they have nothing to do.  


One might suppose answers don’t need to matter.  We need not suppose that there would be no one to care.  We can suppose that in the future, we need not do anything about anything, because we cannot.


When you think about it, for most of human history, people cared about stuff but couldn’t do anything about it.  We could go back into that mode, where we care, but cannot do.  


We can still have existential crises, however.  Let’s see software do THAT.  Heh.  We can ponder the meaning of life WAY better than some software which doesn’t even have life.
