Artificial Intelligence… You Ready?

shantesh mani | E1

Everyone is talking about the big buzz words right now, the next industrial revolution, artificial intelligence, machine learning, data science and digital transformation just to name the big ones. The million-dollar

question is, what does all this mean for you, your professional career, your business and even your family.

See the thing is, I am a data scientist and yes, I do believe we currently are in the process of another revolution. Theoretically it will drastically change the world. Will it be tomorrow? unlikely! The transformation though, has begun. Over the next 10, 20, 30 to 50+ years, there will be colossal changes to the way we live, work and play.

The question is not whether it will happen, the question is whether you are prepared for the revolution. Now, I am not talking about some fictional terminator robots taking over the world, well who knows 😉 What I am talking about, is understanding the coming changes, the way in which we function as a society and how you too can be prepared for the coming years.

Technology has come a long way since I was a teenager, only in just over ten years ago. I hope to share great content with my blog and articles I publish here on LinkedIn. I experience family and friends every day that struggle with technology, even those of my generation and even younger.

I have a goal to help people better understand it all, I am sure you will agree that it can be overwhelming at times. I have been inspired mostly through helping my parents navigate this landscape and adapt to today’s world.

I believe we cannot ignore it. We must become even more informed and share as much knowledge as possible. I am concerned at times, especially knowing how my parents have been scammed online through emails, hacking scams, privacy, and identity issues.

The fact is that more and more people are doing much more online these days. Suffice it to say that the online world is encapsulating our lives and without better understanding of not just cybersecurity and privacy but the entire ecosystem, I believe people are opening themselves up for potentials risks.

I have not figured out the exact format of how to do this. It is going to be agile as I learn and grow and figure it out along the way. What I do hope for is plenty of feedback of what is good and what is not. Please, I do ask for your input, let me know what you would like to read about. As I find my feet, I promise that I will make this experience valuable and informative.

Thanks, I look forward to hearing from you and stay tuned for the next episode 😊
