About Data Science and Artificial Intelligence (AI):
Data Science and Artificial Intelligence (AI), is now known to be a thriving field from Industry Utility and Employability point of view. This market is likely to swell to USD 20 billion by 2025. The career prospect is great and also one of the important skillsets when it comes to the market. Companies are becoming increasingly reliant on data-backed intelligence and are eager to hire data professionals who can make sense of the information their respective businesses collect day in and day out.
Employers have demanded AI skill outstripped job seekers by 2.2 times in Jun 2018. With the fast-paced expansion of the AI / ML job market, the skill gap is becoming a reason for worry. This supply-demand gap indicates a huge opportunity for mid and senior-level professionals to transit into the field of Data Science and AI.
