Top AI & ML Courses Offered By Tech Giants

Here’s a list of the top AI and ML courses offered by tech giants in 2021.
Data scientist

Artificial intelligence is no longer limited to science fiction books and movies. Whether we realise it or not, every day and for almost all usual activities, artificial intelligence has been influencing us in some way or the other. The world has made immense progress in the field, and the global AI market size is predicted to grow from $58.3 billion today to $309.6 billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 39.7 per cent during the forecast period. 

A couple of years ago, there was a talent shortage in AI. However, tech giants have now realised the need for more data scientists and analysts, and subsequently, have launched courses to cater to this need. At Analytics India Magazine, we take a look at the top AI and ML courses offered by tech giants. 

The list is in no particular order.
