Top AI Certifications That Will Improve Your Employability by sharmaniti437: 7:44am On Sep 08, 2020
AI, automation, and cognitive system development will be among the three dominating forces to control the lives of humans, and the fate of businesses, in the times to come. Especially AI, given the innovation and efficiency it has brought in to almost every sector of business. Today, we have AI-powered self-driving cars, customer assistance robots that leverage the power of AI, AI chatbots, and humanoids already existing. Tomorrow, we might see AI-empowered robot soldiers protecting the national boundaries from enemies and infiltrators.

As per Statista, the Artificial Intelligence market revenues, in 2018, amounted to USD 10 billion, which increased by a whopping 54% in 2019. China has been among the leading nations that are leveraging AI very effectively to grow its GDP, which is forecasted to rise by an overwhelming 26.1% by 2030.

Professional Certifications & Employability
Amid the intense competition in the global job markets for AI-specific jobs, skill proficiency has become the differentiating factor in the candidate-shortlisting criteria for the entry-level roles.
