In recent years, AI has evolved as a dominant disruptor. Every industry is adopting AI to digitally transform their businesses. The need for understanding AI and exploiting its potential has now expanded far beyond the techies sitting in the research lab and developers trying to show PoC on a miniature data set.

It is the need of the hour for professionals across the organization, independent of their job roles, to have a working knowledge of AI and how to effectively use this disruptive technology in their area of work.

If you are a Business Leader and CXO

If you are a business leader, or CXO of an organization, large or small, MNC or a startup, you need to use the disruptive power of AI to make your product/service valuable to your customers. When you understand how AI can be used as a competitive advantage and also a decision making tool, you will build a strong organization.

One can argue that a business leader can recruit professionals with AI knowledge. However, as always, everything starts at the top. To adopt this disruptive technology, you need to build a culture of data based decision making and effective use of AI, which can be done only when the top management is part of the process.

If you are a Product/Project Manager

As a manager of a product or a project, it is likely that your responsibility will include a good proportion of AI. If not today, very soon, you will see the type of problems you manage, change completely. This will be driven by AI and to be effective in your role, you need to understand how AI works, ask the right questions. Be intelligent in your discussion with your customer/team. Hence, you need to get the right perspective on AI.

If you are Developer or an Analyst

For code developers, building expertise in AI will enable them to stay ahead of the competition. It is clear that AI is evolving faster than ever and one needs to keep up with the trends to be able to cope with the career challenges ahead. As a developer, you need to be at the forefront of developing AI applications. And keep yourself updated with the latest techniques and toolchains.
