## Trends in Data Science and AI in India

Data continues to transform the way we work and interact and businesses today are seeking more data-driven decisions. There is no doubt that there has been a lot of innovation in AI and Data Science over the past decade with massive amounts of data generated every minute. We have also witnessed the automation capabilities increase with advancements in AI. Automation has also simplified many processes including data collection, data processing, evaluation, and sharing of information.

Data is becoming difficult to analyze because it flows in from various sources at an unprecedented speed. To solve this problem, we will see the use of Graphic Analytics that will represent the complex data in a visual format making it easier to draw insights. We will also see automation of business processes through RPA allowing their workforce to devote time to other high-value work. We will also see an increase in the use of NLP for sentiment analysis and machine translation. So, the year 2021 will pan out some advancements in the field of DS AND AI. To explore the possibilities and limitations of these disruptive technologies, enroll in the Advanced Program for Data Science and AI from 360DigiTMG.
