Artificial Intelligence (AI) in a Nutshell –
Another word for Artificial Intelligence is Machine Intelligence. The basic definition of Artificial Intelligence (AI) is when machines or computers perform Cognitive Functions that are basically associated with the human brain, for example, thinking, solving problems or learning.
Artificial Intelligence Jobs In India
India isn’t exactly a hub for cutting-edge research in Artificial Intelligence (AI). There are still misconceptions about the fact that Machine Learning, Data Science, and Artificial Intelligence spell the loss of human jobs, hence the hesitation.
That is probably the reason, India hasn’t spelled out its long-term vision regarding the implementation of Artificial Intelligence.Hence the Job opportunity is immense in AI with new dimensions of career.
Future Of Artificial Intelligence In India
As the idea of Artificial Intelligence is getting more and more support, people are seeking to build a career in this field. There is a great scope of AI in India because the aim is to develop a technology-oriented work environment, for efficiency and perfect solutions to different problems. And sooner or later AI is slated to become the part of our daily life as it has already started.
Introduction School Connect Online –
School connect is an online learning platform, the platform of education which is coming forth every single day to connect students with advanced learning at a low cost.
AI makes it a lot easier for teachers and school management to keep track of how well or poorly the students are performing. Such a system can be used to deal effectively with the vast volume of data and statistics that these schools and colleges normally have. They can use these to create definite reports that help them understand the progress being made by various students. The best part of all this is that such reports can be created as many times as needed. The quality of data can be enhanced well.
