The idea behind AI — which focuses on developing algorithms that build smart machines equipped with human intelligence to ease processes — originated in 1950 when mathematician Alan Turing published a research paper on "Computing Machinery and Intelligence." It was then that a Turing Test was determined to see if the machines were intelligent enough.
AI-enabled systems have the potential to grasp knowledge and adapt to it as they make decisions. Soon after, the technology was widely adopted by companies such as Google, IBM and Apple.
The opportunities it brings to the table

In fact, there are as many as 97,000 job openings for analytics and data science in India.
