How To Become A Successful Artificial Intelligence Engineer: Key Skills Needed

What is Artificial Intelligence?

Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) are the latest emerging technologies that are transforming industries. AI engineers would be much in demand and would be most sought after in sectors such as technology, manufacturing, logistics, finance and Healthcare.

Artificial intelligence (AI) is a branch of computer science that involves building intelligent machines that can be a computer, robot or any other machine to perform tasks that normally require human intelligence. Artificial intelligence can be referred to as the capability of the machine to mimic the human mind.

We can see the impact of artificial intelligence in every sector today and it is hard to ignore its presence for example:

  • Manufacturing sector- robotic machinery,
  • Healthcare sector– robotic surgeries, virtual nursing assistants
  • Education sector– digitized textbooks, virtual campus tours
  • Transportation sector – autonomous vehicle, GPS, and more

AI is an interdisciplinary science with multiple processes, and is actually changing every area of the technology industry.
