There's an upcoming boom in this industry that is dubbed as the 4th industrial revolution. If you set yourself up to be a part of this wave, you'll stand to make really good income.
Those with a master's degree or higher in this industry are expected to be paid $300,000 US dollars to $500,00 a year or more.
So don't miss out!
"Do something today that your future self will thank you for." -- Anonymous
If you were given a glimpse into the future, knowing what you know, would you take the steps today to make sure that you get to benefit from what the future brings?
The big boom of the future happens to be in A.I. (Artificial Intelligence).
In fact, investors have already poised themselves in investing their hard earned dollars in this industry.
AI has been dubbed the 4th industrial revolution. The third being the rise of electronics, telecommunications, and computers.
Yes there are people worried that automation would take out jobs in certain sectors. And it's most likely true.
In fact, it's inevitable.
However, instead of waiting for the hurricane to hit you in a vulnerable state, why not prepare yourself by building a fortified home that withstands extreme storms?
It's the same thing when it comes to careers and finances. When you know what is about to come, it's best to fortify your finances and career to withstand against the storm.
According to AI technology statistics, robotics could replace 800 million jobs making about 30% of occupations extinct.
So about 375 million people will have to switch careers by 2030
The limited number of AI experts is seen to be a major obstacle to the AI market's growth. (HINT: This is where you poise yourself to be highly sought after)
We are currently at the early stages of machine learning, but it's about to burst.
Just look at the salaries of a Machine Learning Engineer at this present moment. Indeed reports the average salary to be $145,941.
Some statistics to blow your mind and your eyeballs:
Right now the current educational system isn't ready for the effects of AI on employment in 2030 and beyond.
This is why it's import to equip ourselves with knowledge and skills. Because education is power.
Don't fret, it really doesn't take money to do this. I'm all about free information, so...
We're going to find you some free info on how to learn machine and learning and intelligent stuff that make you sound really smart.
But first it's not all doom and gloom for those who are not inclined to get into artificial intelligence.
So before you start getting heated up and start an uprising against the robots, know that...
As history dictates, whenever occupations get eliminated like the Bowling Alley Pinsetter or the Human Alarm Clock (Real jobs, true story), an occupation that never existed before gets created.
Plus, Salesforce predicts AI will generate 800,000 jobs in the customer service space alone. This stands to boost customer service revenue by $1.1 trillion as soon as 2021.
So yes, we still need human brains and human interactions.
And so far, robots can't be sassy.
And we need sassiness in this world.
In fact I predict a job will be created for someone to be sassy to people because they're tired of hearing the same automated voice telling them how wonderful and great they are.
Sometimes you just a need someone to give you a little attitude.
And berate you,
To make you feel alive.
The best things in life are free. The second best are very expensive -- Coco Chanel
I'm a strong proponent of learning as much as possible without having to pay anything. If Will Hunting could do it, then we can too!
Granted, he's a fictional character that Matt Damon and Ben Affleck made up and script doctors totally redid the story, but still.
Information is at our fingertips.
If you are self-sufficient then you can learn anything.
In fact, we would love to hear from you after you've finished your free education and got an offer for an AI job because we'll feature you with the headline, "How do you like them apples?!"
If you don't know the reference for that quote, please free up a little time in your busy schedule and pop some popcorn while you watch Good Will Hunting so you can actually understand what the crap I'm writing about.
That was just a taste of what it's like to be the brunt of a future sassy employee.
And you're welcome!
According to Machine Learning Engineers, it's important to know a programming language first, and the one they recommend is Python because it's better suited to Machine Learning.
Fortunately, there are plenty of free Python courses out there:
FREE PYTHON COURSES:
Udemy is free and all you have to do is search for a particular course on Udemy and on the left side under price, check the box that says "Free" and it will list just the free courses in your chosen topic.
Right now Free Python courses on Udemy yields 9,213 results. Plenty for you to choose from.
Also as a side note, if you learn this programming language, you already added some major needed skills that are in demand in the job market today.
Here's a free 4-hour course by FreeCodeCamp on Youtube that has great reviews.
Once you feel like you've mastered Python, make sure you get certified.
Now this is where it's not free.
I know, I hear you.
But, it's not that expensive to get certified and you're more apt to land a job. So it pays for itself.
The price for the exam/certification depends on the level. So an entry-level (PCEP - Certified Entry-Level Python Programmer) certification is $59 while the professional-level (PCPP2 Certified Professional in Python Programming 2) cost $195.
Here is where you can find information for Python certification.
