From smartphones, chatbots, search engine results, and even the way we shop, AI impacts almost every aspect of our lives. In the health care space, Al is the buzzword, and for good reason.

Applied practically, AI is one of the most important emerging technologies, and studying and upskilling in AI can open up a world of opportunities for technology professionals.

For professional women in the technology field, especially those looking to return to work after a sabbatical, knowledge of AI can prove to be career boosting, which can help to level the playing field for women candidates searching for relevant job opportunities.
