Jobs against AI
Looking for a job that will survive the onslaught of AI? Well, Cognizant has come up with more than a score that are both plausible and futuristic, while representing work that humans will continue to need to do.
For one there’s the data trash engineer. These types can identify unused data in an organisation, clean it up and feed it into machine-learning algorithms to find hidden insights. “The goal of the data trash engineer is to transform data from trash to treasure,” Cognizant says.
Plus there’s the joy adjutant. Their mission is to help individuals find joy in their relationships with everyday objects in their home – the clue here is the graphic novel The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up.
Let’s not forget the algorithm bias auditor who ensures the algorithms at the heart of AI are fair, legal and representative of the values of the organisation, and that they’re seen to be as such.
Cognizant says the jobs convey themes born from our deep-seated aspirations for the future. They include ethical behaviours, security and safety, and dreams (the desire to continue believing in the “positive power of technological-driven progress”).
