There is an ongoing debate about how technology will take over the jobs in the future. The main concern of people is that robots will automate many routine jobs in each and every industry. Billionaire Businessman Mark Cuban this year warned on Twitter that robots will soon take away human jobs. He tweeted sharing a Medium article," Automation is going to cause unemployment and we need to prepare for it."

Technology is evolving at an exponential rate and we soon need to catch up with the rapidly changing trends. However, there is some good news. IT major Cognizant has released a report which shares 21 new jobs that will emerge over the next 10 years and will become cornerstones of the future of work.

"They're not science fiction – they're jobs your HR department will have to fill before very long. Some are highly technical, while others won't require much tech knowledge at all," the report stated.
