It used to be that we measured our career success by the changing of our titles. Now we know to measure our professional success by our degree of self-development. Learning something new positively impacts your employability and your career growth. Learning AI can be one of those newly learned skills for you as well.
But why learn AI, specifically?
Our Head of Research, Anders Arpteg, often makes use of a quote from Sundar Pichai, CEO of Alphabet/Google, who says “AI is one of the most important things humanity is working on. It’s more profound than, I don’t know, electricity or fire”. This is a great analogy that I always like to use when talking about the impact of AI in our collective lives. Humankind was propelled into a forward leap of development after discovering how to control and use fire. Well, AI is the “fire” discovery of our lifetime. We’re being pushed into a whole new direction of technological innovation and advancement that will affect and reshape all future human endeavors. It already does, but most of us just aren’t consciously aware of it.
For example, the Peltarion platform is now being used to help doctors fight cancer, carmakers optimize battery power, curators identify moods in music, farmers keep their crops secure, among many other uses.
The possibilities for our future use of AI are endless. How will we keep up, participate, engage and better ourselves and our lives if we don’t learn to use and work with AI?
