Why the need for Training courses on Artificial Intelligence?
Artificial Intelligence is a new revolution in the Technology world and it affects every aspect, sector, thought, and speed of human life. Artificial Intelligence spreads its hands in all categories of Jobs Sectors whether it is Medical, Education, Technology, Arts & Crafts, Digital, Manual, or Spiritual also. There will be nothing left to reach out of AI influence.
That’s why it has been also assumed that the arrival of AI may prove disastrous and revolutionary as well. Data from the World Economic Forum reports that “AI will replace 85 million jobs across the globe by 2025”. This fierce data is shocking for every technological worker and organization.
And when the Education Minister says – “This is a good beginning towards future-proofing our Yuva Shakti” then what does it mean?
Training course equips the youth with skills on how to use and operate AI. The AI will create several new job categories which require particular skills in operating AI. All the existing Jobs Categories comprising employment in all companies will be either replaced or scrapped after accepting the AI tools. That’s why the new training and skills on AI is a must for all professional, rural youths, Students, Home Families, etc.
