Event Details

Designing a digital organization requires new building blocks. Work constantly evolves. Soon, AI and automation will be found in every job, in every profession, in every industry. The concerns about a ‘jobless future’ are understandable, but work is not going away. Many businesses are now trying to figure out the pieces of work.

As industry sectors are melting and reforming in startlingly creative ways, blending talents, disciplines, and technologies in a supercharged wave of innovation, how people work together is clearly changing.

Technology solves many problems, but it also creates new problems that need to be addressed by people. How can an established company build a new architecture to survive the future of work?

Cognizant proposes 21 new jobs that will emerge over the next 10 years and will become cornerstones of the future of work. From data detectives, to cyber city analysts, to augmented reality journey builders, these jobs are not science fiction they’re jobs your HR department will have to fill before very long. Take a peek into this world – hear, debate and experience what’s ahead in this must attend event with leaders and disruptors in the industry.
