The number of investments in artificial intelligence (AI) is setting new records with each passing year. Investors’ activity indicates the significance of this kind of technology for society. This interesting topic came to us from Interesting Engineering in their article, “Artificial Intelligence Creates a New Generation of Machine Learning.”

Besides the important role AI plays in a variety of fields, AI as a technology is simply more efficient than traditional technology. This kind of productivity in the practical implementation of AI will continue to fuel the high demand for data scientists, machine learning engineers, machine learning researchers, and other professions related to the field; it will effectively replace computer science altogether.

This has already been realized in companies that are operating in different verticals — such as image recognition, voice recognition, medicine or cybersecurity. The challenge is acquiring a workforce with the right set of skills and knowledge.
