In 2013, Oxford University researchers Carl Benedikt Frey and Michael Osborne released a report: “The Future of Employment: How Susceptible Are Jobs to Computerization?” Underwriters, claims adjusters, insurance appraisers and agents were among the top jobs to be replaced by computers among all occupations.
