Notably, AI has taken the tech industry by storm, particularly since the unveiling of OpenAI’s AI-powered chatbot, ChatGPT. AI has become a vital component of people’s personal and professional lives in the last several months. While some people see AI as a threat to jobs, many professionals believe that AI will not replace humans and that humans will instead learn to coexist with AI. Furthermore, individuals that learn how to work with AI will excel in the future. As a result, Infosys’ new AI course is undoubtedly focused at supporting the AI transformation and building the capabilities required in the next few years.
