How to Get a Job in Artificial Intelligence

Get a job at an AI startup without a technical degree


"At one level, AI will require that even more people specialize in digital skills and data science. But skilling-up for an AI-powered world involves more than science, technology, engineering, and math. As computers behave more like humans, the social sciences and humanities will become even more important. Languages, art, history, economics, ethics, philosophy, psychology and human development courses can teach critical, philosophical and ethics-based skills that will be instrumental in the development and management of AI solutions."

- Microsoft president Brad Smith and EVP of AI and research Harry Shum, "The Future Computed"
