Chatboats are being seen quite a lot these days. Many companies have started using chatboats equipped with artificial intelligence to talk to their online customers. Many banks have also started using chatboats in the country. The Google Assistant you use is also a type of chatboat.
Chatboats on other companies’ websites are providing answers to the questions by chatting with humans with as much accuracy and as fast as they are becoming popular, hardly anyone would have imagined that a machine can be used by you to be absolutely human Will you be able to chat and answer your questions? But AI technology has made this possible. This is just one example. The day is not too far when driverless cars will appear around you on the streets. According to one figure, about 700 establishments, including government units, are using artificial intelligence solutions in the country. Of these, around 60 per cent are large companies.
Experts believe that the field of Artificial Intelligence (AI) is undoubtedly new, but the possibilities are increasing rapidly. In the coming days, there will be more progress, especially in areas like education, skilling, healthcare and agriculture.
India has been named in the top three countries of Artificial Intelligence (AI) skills. India comes after America and China in this area. Israel and Germany are followed by India. According to one figure, India has seen an increase of nearly 200 percent in the number of artificial intelligence skills over the last three years compared to 2015. At present, this technology is currently being used in most companies like Google, Facebook, Twitter, Amazon, Microsoft and IBM.
Apart from this, smartphones and driverless cars of renowned mobile companies have also started this feature. According to NASSCOM, there is a great demand for Artificial Intelligence and machine learning experts in the country at this time. A few months ago, the World Economic Forum released a report titled ‘Future of Jobs’.
This report revealed that in the coming 6 years, by 2025, more than half of the human work (about 52 percent) will be started by machines. Obviously as the use of this technology increases in the products and services of our everyday needs, the sector will see more and more jobs as AI Engineer, ML Engineer and AI Interaction Designer.
After specializing in Automation and Artificial Intelligence, there are various career scopes for youth in the field as AI Engineers, Programmers, Robotic Scientists or Face Recognition Software Developers. Such professionals can get jobs in both government and private sector companies.
The NITI Aayog of the Central Government is also working towards the use of Artificial Intelligence. Its prospects are being explored, especially in the fields of healthcare, agriculture and education. Obviously in these areas also the opportunity is expected to increase rapidly in the coming days. Apart from this, young gadgets manufacturing companies as well as DRDO, ISRO and NASA etc. can also find jobs for themselves as AI / ML Specialists.
Courses and Qualifications
To take courses related to Artificial Intelligence, it is necessary to have computer science, IT, mechanical, electrical, electronics and instrumentation degree, diploma or good knowledge of these subjects. Only after this, some specialization courses related to AI can be done, such as Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, Advanced Robotics Systems etc.
Keeping in mind the needs of the industry, a few months ago, the Indian Institute of Technology, Hyderabad has launched a BTech degree program in Artificial Intelligence for the first time. Apart from this, in other engineering colleges, this course is being conducted under BTech courses these days. Some of the top IT companies like Microsoft and IBM are also coming forward to provide industry training of AI these days.Recently, Microsoft India has tied up with 10 universities to train it, where the company will open its AI lab and train the youth for the next three years. These days, many educational portals including Corsera are also offering short term courses in Automation and Artificial Intelligence from online medium, from where basic information can be obtained. Currently, this course is more suitable for youth of IT and computer background.
Automation and Artificial Intelligence are among the high paying jobs these days. After obtaining a degree in this new age technique, the starting salary as a professional can range from Rs 50 thousand to Rs 1 lakh per month.
