The Importance of Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning in Today’s World
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is one of the top trends of 2021, which has a great potential to expand more in the future. Artificial Intelligence is an area of computer science that demonstrates behaviors such as visual perception, decision-making, speech recognition, etc., associated with human intelligence. It makes the computer systems program in such a way that they start reacting somewhat like humans and act as our virtual assistants. The growing advanced technology reduces the stress of humans and manages computer data systematically. It also improves the tools to manage programs more efficiently than ever.

Machine Learning is a substantial part of artificial intelligence that trains a machine how to learn. Machine Learning helps the system program and function smoothly through the provided data and experience without human intervention.

"Artificial intelligence will reach human levels by around 2029. Follow that out further to, say, 2045, we will have multiplied the intelligence, the human biological machine intelligence of our civilization a billion-fold," says Ray Kurzweil, an American Inventor. It is noted that artificial intelligence operations are much more reliable in terms of reasoning and make it less tiring for humans, which stands as a significant career scope now and in the future. The reasoning aspect of AI programming focuses on choosing the correct algorithm to reach certain desired outcomes. Artificial Intelligence can be used in almost all technological domains, and hence, the need for artificial intelligence professionals is required in large numbers. There’s no doubt that the corporates, manufacturing sectors, and technological industries would be more interested in the skill of AI because of their advanced skills.

The recent 'Research and Markets' report states that the AI solution market will reach $227.5 billion by 2026. This further points out that the future is going to be driven entirely by AI. As one of the fastest-growing economies globally, India has seen massive growth in the IT sector with the progress of AI. Studies show that the number of AI start-ups has increased 14 times since the year 2000. In addition, AI has made its way in the government sectors too, along with the private sectors. For example, the Indian Railways have decided to significantly improve its operational efficiency by using artificial intelligence and data analysis. AI can be used in collecting data and working on data analytics in trains, passengers ticket bookings, systems maintenance, freight operations, and rail assets for much smoother functioning.

Artificial Intelligence in India has been booming over the past few years. Other sectors like banking, healthcare, education, finance have rapidly adopted the functions of AI to stay up to date with the current market trends. In addition, businesses have taken up artificial intelligence to reduce operational costs, increase efficiency, grow revenue, improve customer experience, and much more.

Today, Artificial Intelligence has become one of the most discussed terms in the IT industry. It is claimed that 77% of the user devices feature AI. These devices provide information much faster and show a significant level of cognitive computing, which is necessary for today’s advanced society. Therefore, Artificial Intelligence greatly helps in work efficiency and hence, is the necessity and future of the tech globe.
