AI is wide-ranging branch of computer science concerned with building smart computer programs or machines capable of performing tasks that typically require human intelligence.  It contains many subfields such as machine learning, deep learning, neural network, natural languages processing and other techniques to solve actual problems.

I am excited to bring about such value propositions and generate further business development opportunities.”
