is a term we’ve been hearing for the past few decades. From its humble beginnings towards the end of the 20 th century via depictions in movies such as Terminator and Robocop , to its more recent manifestations via Chatbots are computer programs which were engineered to converse in spoken or written form with humans. They are usually used in dialogue systems with a limited topic range. For example, they can answer basic customer questions or help you buy the correct train ticket. and shopping recommendation engines, and Machine techniques are now well-poised to wipe out redundancy and disguised unemployment at the workplace. Let’s take a closer look at understanding , its disruption capability, and how you can future-proof yourself.

So, what is , and how does it work?
Data forms the backbone of any organisational decision today. There is a plethora of raw and unrefined data all around us. According to a GE report, over 10 TB of data is generated per aeroplane engine for every 30 minutes of flight time. Harnessing this data and making sense of it is where Big Data describes data collections so big that humans are not capable of sifting through all of it in a timely manner. However, with the help of algorithms it is usually possible to find patterns within the data so far hidden to human analyzers. techniques play a critical role. Machine An algorithm is a fixed set of instructions for a computer. It can be very simple like "as long as the incoming number is smaller than 10, print "Hello World!". It can also be very complicated such as the algorithms behind self-driving cars. permit computers to keep absorbing this mountain of data and its and Neural Networks are simplified abstract models of the human brain. Usually they have different layers and many nodes. Each layer receives input on which it carries out simple computations, and passes on the result to the next layer, by the final layer the answer to whatever problem will be produced. patterns allow it to come up with meaningful inferences, almost to the point where it can safely predict the next steps. This is what the human mind does. This is .
How can you future-proof yourself, today?
While has the potential to unsettle the way we perceive employability, it also gives rise to a completely new function, fueled with a large number of highly skilled jobs around statistics, computer programming, design and engineering. An estimated two million jobs are expected to open up by 2020 and staying abreast with relevant skills is going to define the next wave of opportunities.
Upskilling yourself in competency-based training tools and programmes is the need of the hour and much of the focus of the Government and private-sector participants is now on ensuring the supply-side of manpower is commensurate to the expected demand for these skills. With the arrival and wide acceptance of EdTech, upskilling yourself is now within reach. MOOC platforms have also played a pivotal role in the adoption and democratisation of such trainings and made it possible to learn right from incubators and labs in leading universities such as MIT and Carnegie Mellon.
