Artificial intelligence and machine learning as already discussed are really in their budding state. We do enjoy interacting with Alexa and google assistant. This shows how much we are getting used to it. We are awed by the concept of self-driving cars but this is just the beginning.
If you are interested in this field and want to learn AI, then you might go for diploma, certificate, or degree courses. I will talk about the degree course. First, you need to know your aptitude and interest. Coding must interest and excite you because there will be a lot of coding and math involved.
The Path to choose
So, obviously, the preferred path is to select science with PCM and computer in your +2. You need to sit for the entrance exams. Next, you have to select computer science or information technology. There are many universities that offer B.Tech in computer science with special attention to AI and ML. There are many private universities offering these courses as well. Make sure the lab is good because that is where you are going to spend most of the time. Choose a college with good infrastructure.
After completing your studies what are the job roles that you can expect to have?
Almost every industry requires an AI engineer to fulfill its technological requirements. The jobs requirement in this field is increasing by many folds every year. According to the Gartner report of 2019, there has been a 270% growth in the applications of AI from 2015 – 2019. AI career opportunities are drastically reaching great heights.
The job roles can be very varied but some of them are:
1. Big data Engineer
