The first job role available is an IT Service Desk Engineer,” the author writes.

The piece also draws an interesting line of progression from voice-based phone assistants and chatbots to the Future of Work, which will be comprised of robots/conversational AI agents and humans working together collaboratively to generate business value.

“They can be found in hotlines from telecommunications providers, insurance companies and banks – wherever companies have to advise a large number of customers by telephone and provide information. We are talking about digital voice assistants, now called chatbots,” the author writes. “Dialogue-enabled AI assistants should pave the way for hybrid workforces made up of people and robots.”
