Develop the AI skills employers are seeking

AI applications rely on human intelligence. To take advantage of all things AI, employers will need professionals who understand AI applications and can leverage them to drive results. According to a McKinsey report, 39% of businesses reported hiring software engineers, and 35% hired data engineers for AI-related positions in 2022.1

The ASU AI boot camp will prepare you to leverage AI and machine learning to solve business problems and to discuss the latest innovations in AI with key stakeholders.
