Artificial intelligence and automation wille create new kinds of jobs, research by consultancy Cognizant says.

While data processing in insurance companies will be automated, augmented reality designers will be in demand as the claims management process is redesigned, the report on the future of work shows.

Not all work can be easily replicated by software, and people need to be better trained in work that is uniquely human and, it says.

Work involving collaboration, creativity, curiosity, empathy and physical touch cannot be carried out by machines today, it adds.

In healthcare, for instance, nurses are able to spend more time empathising with and guiding patients as the manual, repetitive parts of their jobs are automated.
