AI (artificial intelligence) and robotics are no longer the realm of science fiction and offer some of the most exciting and cutting-edge careers today. Scientists are now developing intelligent machines that can learn, work and react like humans. Computers with AI are designed to recognise speech and respond, learn, plan and problem solve, while robots are machines capable of carrying out a complex series of actions automatically. Robots and AI are increasingly being used and developed for all areas of business like healthcare, manufacturing, finance and retail.
If you enjoy coding, programming, creative problem solving or research then you might enjoy working as a data scientist, machine learning engineer, software developer, robotics scientist or researcher in AI and robotics.
