Why study Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning in USCI?
Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning is a hot core field that is rapidly growing in the fast-changingworld and powering for great industrial revolution. The world workforce has changed the way the business grows without affecting humanity. A software giant predicted that around 75 million conventional jobs may disappear while 130 million jobs created dur the revolution of AI and ML. It is estimated that by 2025, 30% of the jobs will end-up unfilled due to required skills shortage.
Many organizations already face a shortage of skilled talents across different verticals. Technical jobs increasingly require technology skills, organizations have begun to search for skilled persons with specialized skills such as data scientists, robotics experts and AI engineers and blockchain developers etc.
Role of AI and ML
AI and ML plays vital role in every walk of life. It attempts to provide efficient and re-defined workforce that enables less manual and paper work, quick responses, change of public administration, provide better solutions. In health care industry, AI provides a very much affordable services at lowest cost. AI plays an important role in computational thinking and creativity of every human.
Artificial intelligence (AI) is nothing but mimicking of human intelligence by building algorithms and applying into a dynamically built computing environment. In other words, AI attempt to make computers think and act like humans. This dynamic environment with AI can be achieved by three components – a computational system, data management system and advanced AI algorithms and codes.
