There are two points in the evolution of any industry. First is the tipping point where it breaks off from a flat curve and embraces explosive growth due to direct or indirect factors. Second is a turning point that changes the direction of that industry per se. For data and software professionals, the spurt in Artificial Intelligence (AI) innovation is a turning point. A massive opportunity like this has never emerged before for this genre of professionals. If they can equip themselves with AI proficiency at the right time – the world of growth, and financial gains are limitless.
