No. Proper automation requires as little intervention from humans as possible since the tools used are built to run tests once they are set up. As convenient as this might be, it should not be a complete replacement for manual testing – only for repetitive tasks like load testing, where thousands of virtual users are required.  Engineers should not automate things like test scripts if those scripts can only be expected to run occasionally, nor should they automate code reviews, or bug testing for new builds of software that might require human interaction to detect issues. We can conclude by saying that large-scale, repetitive tasks are a better fit for automation.
