In todayâ€™s era, where technology is expanding exponentially artificial intelligence is the next big sensation. We know that we are already dependent on machines for almost every task but itâ€™s time that we start socializing with them too. Now, what exactly is artificial intelligence?
It is a branch of computer science that enables machines to perform tasks that normally require human efforts or intelligence based on past data and actions. AI is not here to replace humans instead it will create more jobs. According to the Gartner report, AI will create 2.3 million jobs by the end of 2020, while eliminating 1.8 Million leading to a net gain of 500,000 potentially new jobs. And in the world struck by a pandemic job opportunities for people engaged in artificial intelligence will see a sharp rise.
