study an artificial intelligence course abroad?

Who isn’t fascinated by the way Tony Stark operates J.A.R.V.I.S. – chatting with him, waving away the screens in air and commanding him to get his Iron Man suit ready. Haven’t we all wished for our own J.A.R.V.I.S (or Tony Stark???!)?  *sighs* 

Although, this scenario seems a bit distant, artificial intelligence is very much all around us – every time you interact with Siri or get help from Google Assistant and Cortana… or command Alexa to play your favourite song – you’re dealing with artificial intelligence - aka AI. 

If you’re someone who’s interested in studying an artificial intelligence course, there’s no better time than NOW. There has been a staggering 30% jump in Indian students applying to an artificial intelligence course abroad. In fact, the number of Indian applications has trebled in the past one year alone.  

Right from chat bots on websites to facial recognition used in Facebook and Instagram – we live in a world surrounded by AI-driven technology. That’s where the future lies. Besides the upcoming start-ups, giants like Google, Amazon, Facebook, Microsoft and Tesla are hunting for AI developers. This is why you need to act now and advance your career. We’ll tell you all about AI and the most popular universities across the world that offer an artificial intelligence course. Read on…  

What is artificial intelligence? 

Artificial intelligence is simply a computer based system that can carry out tasks which would normally require human support. This can include visual perception, decision making, speech recognition and language identification – to name a few. Basically, all systems that you see around working on voice commands are artificial intelligence systems. 

So what’s the best place to study AI? 

With the world increasingly depending on AI, several universities around the world are offering artificial intelligence courses. Jobs in the field of AI are among the highest paid, but you’ll need a strong education background in the field to get there.
