Forbes India: Cognizant’s Senior Director, Center for the Future of Work, Discusses Jobs that will Emerge over the Next Decade

“Machines can do more, but there is always more to do that almost always needs humans,” says Manish Bahl. “Can a machine create itself, market itself, sell itself or fix itself? Machines are tools, and tools need to be used by people. The future of work will be hybrid and based on how well companies are able to blend the abilities of humans and machines.” Excerpts:

“Industrial Revolution 4.0, propelled by artificial intelligence (AI), is upon us. AI will not just change traditional blue-collar jobs through new modes of manufacturing, but almost all professions, from law to insurance.

An analysis by Cognizant Technology Solution’s Center for the Future of Work believes that almost 21 million jobs will be created over the next 10 to 15 years, triggering a wave of mass employment.

Forbes India spoke to a few experts to find out a suite of new jobs that’ll emerge over the next decade, including the role of man-machine collaborator:

Fighting the narrative of a machine-dominated workspace of the future is a role that blends mechanical precision with the emotive human touch. Robots aren’t going to take all your jobs simply because they can’t; the future of work will be about human beings putting robots to good use. Who, for instance, will build a robot, write the algorithm for it to perform its task, or fix it when it’s broken? As Bahl of Cognizant says, ‘The key task for this role is to develop an interaction system through which humans and machines mutually communicate their capabilities, goals and intentions.’”
