The game is afoot! Be it IBM’s Watson or Wipro’s Holmes, platforms based on artificial intelligence are increasingly driving projects in the IT space. And industry experts predict that it will bring about a dynamic shift in the next five to seven years creating a higher demand for upskilled engineers in niche areas.This simultaneously foreshadows a gradual decrease in demand for engineers on lower levels such as coding, back office maintenance and applications testing. Industry insiders say that pressure will mount on firms to find engineers who can handle smart systems as opposed to a model that uses fresh recruits in large numbers to carry out low-wage and manually repetitive operations.Cognizant’s ADPART automation platform has already helped reduce effort in `application quality assurance testing’ in excess of 30%.
