Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk, have
diametrically opposing views on Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine
Learning (ML), with the latter sounding alarm bells on the risk of AI
taking over jobs, manipulating social media and the rise of a machine
dictator, while the former is batting for AI advancement for healthcare,
consumer behavior analytics, autonomous driving and much more. While
the proponents on both sides battle it out, one thing is for sure: AI
and ML are here to stay and their proliferation on our daily lives is
proof enough. Even then, mobile phones, voice assistants and smart
appliances are just the tip of the iceberg.
According to the market research firm Tractica, the global AI software
market is expected to experience massive growth, with revenue increasing
from $9.5 billion in 2018 to $118.6 billion by 2025. Some of the
world’s largest companies are already sold on the idea, and are
investing heavily in AI.
So, if you’re sitting on Zuckerberg’s side of the table and want to
understand the world of AI, get a glimpse of the great potential that AI
has to offer or want to lead AI initiatives in your organisation, the
‘Demystifying AI and ML’ workshop organised by IIIT Hyderabad Machine
