Automation is trending due to advances in artificial intelligence (AI), availability of big data sets, the rise of cloud computing, and decreasing computing costs. By 2025, AI automation will replace 16% of US jobs with an offset of 9% new jobs created, according to Forrester’s June 2016 report. The new jobs that AI will create will fall mostly in the domain of data science, content curation, and automation management.
