Nowadays, with a degree in AI or ML, you can get a high-paying job as a Machine Learning Engineer, Data Scientist, Natural Language Processing (NLP) Scientist, Business Intelligence Developer, or Human-Centered Machine Learning Designer etc. As per the latest surveys released recently, by 2024, AI will replace humans in translation, and soon it will write books on any subject. The students who would like to work on projects with machine learning, natural language processing, and other AI technologies, then they must focus on AI and ML. Learning AI is not an easy task, since it needs more problem-solving and programming skills. But, learning in AI will help them get into fields such as natural language processing, computer vision and AI-related robotics to set their best career in AI.
The students who are interested in working in the field of AI have to first start with some research in AI, to pursue and build their skills as required to work in the industry. The following are some of the top 10 jobs involving AI skills.
Data Analytics Specialist: In the data analytics and data warehousing departments, these analysts are responsible for the research, development, and implementation of relevant data systems.
Machine Learning Expert: These people are responsible for generating programs that enable machines to take actions without being specifically directed to perform various tasks.
Computer vision engineer: These engineers use computer vision and machine learning-based research to solve real-world problems.
Data scientist: The data scientist deals with coding and other computer programming to manipulate the data and store them efficiently.
Data Engineer: The data engineer works to improve data quality and reliability by creating new formats that machines can read and understand to create new and useful information.
Programmers: These are the people who assist clients in understanding more prominent data trends and preparing the reports.
Computer scientists: These scientists use new and existing computing technology to solve problems in various industries innovatively.
Research expert/engineer: These people are involved in educational research and will use the findings to propose a reliable solution to the identified problems.
Since AI and ML are rapidly growing fields with a lot of job opportunities, many industries are investing in AI and ML to improve their products and services, making it a high-priority skill set required for employment. Moreover, with the popularity of the use of big data and automation in various industries, the demand for AI and ML professionals is expected to continue to grow in the coming months/years.
