Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a branch of computer science concerned…
Have you ever thought about how Google Assistant or Siri in your phone answers your questions, how driverless cars can move from one location to another, how robots carry goods in hospitals, factories and clean offices and large machinery? The technology that makes these things possible is Artificial Intelligence (AI).
AI is the machines ability to mimic human intelligence for problem-solving. In AI the machines learn from past data and actions, and with this information, the machines make appropriate self-corrections so that the same problems don’t occur again. With increased scope for AI and Machine Learning (ML), the machines can be trained to self-decide.
AI is used in major sectors like Agriculture, Health Care, Transport, Cyber Security, Banking, Manufacturing, Hospitality and Entertainment. It has unlimited potential to find smart solutions to modern problems and simplify human tasks like visual perception, speech recognition, decision making and language transitions.
AI Engineers develop, program and train the complex network of algorithms constituting the AI so they can perform the functionality of the human brain.
These engineers have to be experts in software development, data science and engineering and programming. These professionals process the data, develop and maintain the AI systems by using various tools and techniques.
They develop AI models using ML algorithms and deep learning neural networks for taking business decisions that impact the entire organization.
AI developers locate and extract data from different sources then create tests and develop ML models and use Application Program Interface (APIs) calls or embedded codes to build AI applications.
There is no dearth of jobs for AI Engineers as many tech giants are hiring these professionals for their companies such as:
For entry-level AI engineers, the annual salary is $71,600 while the salary for experienced AI professionals is $ 248,625.
According to Gartner’s report, AI was expected to create 2.3 million jobs in 2020. The demand for AI engineers have doubled up over the past few years, as a result, the job growth in AI has flooded the industry.
The business value of $3.9 trillion will be created by AI in 2022. The AI engineering industry is a rapidly evolving industry that can provide you with numerous opportunities and challenges for professional development.
