Just like the Internet at the end of the 1990s, Artificial Intelligence is the driving force behind the new industrial revolution of the 21st century. Connected car, health, fraud detection in banks and HR insurance, sales forecasting, customization of offers and contents, there is not a single sector that escapes the upheavals induced by AI. The AI Institute proposes to accompany you in this changing and boiling world.
Ultra growth and multiple skill
Turnover in the sector is expected to explode. From $7.3 billion in 2018, it is expected to reach nearly $90 billion in revenues in 2025, according to Tractica. The evolution of Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning will affect all segments of daily life, with applications in a wide range of industries such as transportation, logistics, insurance, retail and of course online services with many areas involved such as robotics, human-computer interaction, language processing, etc….
An area with a talent shortage
While a large majority of companies are considering the positive impact of Artificial Intelligence (AI) applications, they are looking for professionals to help them realize their vision. According to Glassdoor’s research on salary, job satisfaction, and the number of job postings, data scientists are in the top position in the United States.
Companies that have used AI specialists to join their teams are clearly facing a shortage of AI skills. In order to lead Artificial Intelligence projects from ideation to implementation, they will need to determine how to bridge their Artificial Intelligence skills gap and be able to integrate experts into their teams.
According to a new study published by Chinese technology giant Tercent (which recently outperformed Facebook in terms of market value), there are an estimated 300,000 AI professionals worldwide, but millions of positions available.
While these numbers are speculative, competitive salaries and benefits and the aggressive recruiting tactics employed by companies to recruit AI talent suggest that the supply of AI talent is far from matching demand.
As the democratization of AI and deep learning applications develop, the demand for AI professionals to do the job has also exploded. Enthusiasm among corporate management for the various AI applications is growing. A recent survey conducted by Ernst & Young confirmed that 56% of senior AI professionals believe that the lack of qualified AI professionals is the main obstacle to implementing AI in business operations.
What is the situation in France?
In an article in the newspaper Le Monde dated March 30, 2019, some experts mention a salary 20% higher than the market average for young data scientists, a salary to which is added more and more often a capital interest comm packages in stock options.
According to an APec study, the demand for AI profiles in France has doubled in one year with 2938 AI-related job openings in 2017 compared to 1,127 in 2016. More specifically on the French market, the arrival of major AI research centres in Paris stimulates competition.
For example, in February 2019, Microsoft announced the opening of an AI research center of 100 engineers. In 2018, IBM has similarly announced that it wants to hire 400 people in AI. At the same time, Samsung opened a centre in Paris under the leadership of French researcher Luc Julia, co-inventor of the Siri solution (acquired by Apple in 2010). Finally, Facebook has set up a laboratory in France and its research and development department Ia monde is led by 2 French Yann LeCun, Turing Prize 2019 and Jérôme Pesenti, former VP of IBM Watson.
This arrival of GAFA and leading technology companies is not without affecting the salaries of data scientists in the French market.
The Mission of The Ai Institute
This bootcamp in Data Science and Artificial Intelligence aims to propel you on the path to an exciting, ever-evolving and rapidly growing career until 2025 and beyond. It is in line with the strong skills needs of the market and provides a response to the lack of training expressed in the Villani report of March 2018 on Artificial Intelligence.
Aimed at young graduates, this training provides all the keys to acquiring expertise in Artificial Intelligence to holders of an initial scientific or economic training level of M1 or M2, whether in the continuity of obtaining their Master’s or as part of a resumption of studies. The curriculum of this program is unique in its approach. He implements an active pedagogy in “Learning by doing” mode through numerous workshops to practice knowledge. Theoretical courses account for only one third of the volume fu program. Everything else is made up of real situations around projects and exercises of progressive levels and adapted to the profiles of students.
To carry out an AI project in business, it is not only essential to master the scientific and technical fundamentals specific to AI, such as STatistics, lr Machine Learning or Deep Learning, specialized computer tools, such as R language, SAS solution, Tensorflow framework, Keras, big data platforms and cloud hosting, but it is also necessary to be trained in the principles and methodologies of product design , product management, change management and their ethical, legal and social implications within organizations. It is this whole range of skills that this training brings.
