Notably, AI has taken the tech world by storm, especially after the launch of ChatGPT, an AI-powered chatbot by OpenAI. AI has become an integral part of people’s personal and professional lives in the past few months.

Furthermore, those who acquire the skills to work with AI will excel in the future. Hence, the new AI curriculum from Infosys definitely aims to facilitate AI transformation and develop the skills needed in the years to come.
