Humanities and arts will survive better because there will be less inventive to automate careers based off those as the demand is lower.

AI won't make any difference to either. AI is good at doing routine things like processing student loan applications but not good at the creative stuff because you will need creative people to program the AI to do creative stuff so there will always be a need for creative people.

Although some TSRians love to destroy the humanities and arts. I think AI will ruin STEM while many parts of humanities and arts may survive.

This is because basic STEM activities are routine and can be automated or replaced by AI, but humanities/arts demand more human approaches like creative and emotion. Even finance jobs are now being replaced by AI.

I think the bits of STEM that may survive would be advanced stages of STEM like advanced sciencd and tech.

I think AI will make the grunt work in STEM redundant but I still think janitors will be worse off with the development of advanced AI.

The fact that Russia can.make troll bots that post highly inflammatory comments online en mass without human help just by analysing previous discussions on forums proves that AI can replicate human emotion (replicate, not actually possess)

I think there are more areas in STEM which are on the "cutting edge" and so AI couldn't possibly make new discoveries as it wouldn't know what to discover. Humanities on the other hand are usually just regurgitations of previous ideas so in theory an AI system could write a essay indiscernible from that written by a human.

The tech companies are actively hiring humanities grads to work on AI.

Meanwhile, here's a nice article of which jobs will be most affected by AI

I do not think that AI has gotten to the point of replicating human emotion.
