Artificial intelligence, or AI, is undoubtedly one of the most significant examples of technological advancement. Almost every industry today, including healthcare, education, business, and automobiles, is growing rapidly.
Due to increase in demand for AI, professional opportunities have increased as well.
What is meant by Artificial Intelligence?
In simple words, Artificial Intelligence can be defined as the ability of a digital computer or computer-controlled robot to perform tasks that are commonly associated with intelligent beings.
It is basically a field that combines computer science and robust datasets to enable problem-solving. AI is often used interchangeably with its subfields, Machine Learning and Deep Learning, however they are not the same, though closely related.
Scope and Future of Artificial Intelligence
It is anticipated that over the next few years, there would hardly be any industry in the world left untouched by artificial intelligence. Organisations are seeking employees with expertise in as it rapidly expands its wings across every industry.
Career Paths in Artificial Intelligence
1. Big Data Analyst
The role of a Big Data Analyst is to find meaningful patterns in data by looking at the past and making predictions about the future. A Data Analyst should be familiar with a variety of tools and programming languages and must possess Data mining and Data auditing skills.
2. Research Scientist
A research scientist is an expert in applied mathematics, machine learning, deep learning, and computational statistics and conducts lab-based trials and experiments. They are expected to have an advanced degree in Computer Science or an advanced degree in a related field.
