As an industry vertical, artificial intelligence is still in an embryonic stage in the world. While countries like USA and China are considered as the major players, India is ranked third in this league. With India’s innovation in the field of artificial intelligence, we can soon expect a boom in the job sector.
Job-hunting is arduous affair, however, with the advancement and innovation in AI technology, the world would soon witness the rise and demand of certain jobs that were once a dream or were completely unknown. Let’s have a look at some of the hottest jobs that will pave new paths and better scopes for professionals in the AI domain:
Though artificial intelligence is known as the technology of tomorrow, it still requires human intervention to learn and get trained. For an example, while racertack.ai was developing India’s first smartbot – MARVIN, they had to train the system to understand, analyse, predict, and respond back to the users. The smartbot was trained even to understand the unsaid intents of customers. Technical, linguistic, and communication experts from racetrack.ai, later developed arrays of algorithms that enabled MARVIN to detect and understand sarcasm, humour, or the satirical aspects of conversation.
Data drives the modern world. Whether a data analyst or data researcher, each of these play major role. However, the recent future has abundant scopes for data detectives who can track, gather, organise, and use patterns to represent data in the most symbolic ways.
Core research scientists
AI requires the skill sets of research scientists from applied and core fields to perform with high accuracy and also to foresee things. While talking about these fields, it can comprise experts from the fields of mathematics, statistics, and others. Experts from computer science and information technology who are acquainted with machine learning, deep learning, or have the potential to drive the process of discovery would also witness this boom.
AI results which are often seen as ‘black box’ or unexplainable, often requires the help of AI Mentors to explain. These mentors can explain the reasons behind such decisions taken by the AI system along with the algorithms behind the operation.
Programming and language experts
Machine Learning, natural language processing, and deep learning forms the nervous system of any AI integrated system. Other important programming languages in AI technology are Java, Python, AIML, MATLAB, R, Tensorflow, Scikit-Learn, Hadoop, and several others. Keeping this in mind, we cannot ignore the fact that experts in these fields will get better job opportunities in the coming days. In other words, the more AI advances, greater will be the job opportunities for these programming and language experts.
Experience has to be gained, but knowledge is never-ending! Keeping yourself updated with the knowledge and ideas related to upcoming technologies will surely help you lead the league in the years to come.
