Understanding the requirements needed to become an artificial intelligence engineer.

in Project HOPE2 years ago

Gone are those days when the study of medicine, law, pharmacy were the only desirable profession, in this generation a lot of desirable profession like the study of artificial intelligence and blockchain study has been added to the table and the desire of studying courses related to artificial intelligence keeps increasing day by day as children gets their minds exposed to the opportunities associated with artificial intelligence.

Artificial intelligence is the ability of a computer system to mimic human behaviour.

Natural intelligence is the display of natural talents and emotions while artificial intelligence is an imputed type of stored information into a machine. Human intelligence comes naturally and even if artificial intelligence can also be improved upon, it can only be done by human ability. For instance, I don’t think we have not gotten to a point where a machine can just wake up and decide to read a book or decide to brush the teeth except there is a human effort that has stored that functional ability into the machine (I stand corrected), but as a human the more we get matured, the more some simple basic knowledge occurs in a natural way. The machine like human has the ability to learn from past imputed data and adjust itself to environmental conditions in order to avoid the repetition of mistakes all over again.


Speaking of artificial intelligence engineer as one of the very important occupation as long as artificial intelligence is concerned entails that the engineer has a very great acquired skill in programming, software engineering as well as data science. These engineers must have a great acquired skill in these related field that will enable them improve on the machine as quickly as it is required.

The software engineers are in charge of building every of the A.I model from the very beginning up until the end, data management and data infrastructure specifically built for different purposes and what the company has requested is all the job of a software engineer. Software engineers cannot work on their own, they will have to work together with business analyst and every other required field for the journey which means anyone who wants to pursue a career in software engineering must be prepared to also get into the spirit of networking and group work and analysis.

I have mentioned earlier that a programming skill is highly important for anyone interested in becoming an A.I engineer, statistics is also a very important valuable skill that every software engineer must acquire. If you are reading this and you are not a lover of statistics, then you have to start getting your mind ready to learn and love statistics that is if you are ever going to pursue a career in A.I engineering.
