What is AI and what does an AI Specialist do

AI refers to Artificial Intelligence and is when machines show cognitive functions associated with humans like learning and problem-solving. AI has become an essential part of the technology industry.

It is subsequently clear that a central part of AI is machine learning as it requires the ability to spot patterns and react to unexpected data on its own.

The main focus of an AI specialist is to program computers to ‘understand’ a variety of situations. One of their roles would, therefore, be to program computers to test theories in relation to how the human mind works.

So what does a day in the life of a Machine Learning or AI Specialist look like?

Machine learning is the future and AI has become the buzzword. Articles and debates are popping up just about everywhere, focusing on both the threats and opportunities created by this dynamic field.

There isn’t really a typical day as the role can be so varied. It would include traditional software development, reading academic papers and catching up on developments in the field.

  • Medicine
