If you listen to the tech pundits (and many tech-firm CEOs), artificial intelligence (A.I.) and machine learning (ML) will define the future. And they’re certainly not wrong: virtually every industry is interested in how A.I. and ML can streamline business processes and boost profits.
These are clearly areas worth any tech professional’s time and attention. But for students and new graduates, the prospect of plunging into the study of artificial intelligence is no doubt intimidating; the associated technologies (not to mention the underlying mathematics) are often hideously complicated. Nonetheless, it’s important to familiarize yourself with A.I. and ML if you want to “future proof” your career.
