These days, pundits galore are proselytizing about the Future of Work. Depending on who you ask, the robots may or may not be taking over, leaving us mere humans pondering how work fits into our lives and whether we’re going to be eventually rendered obsolete.
Just look at the stark contrast in tone between these two headlines: the Wall Street Journal’s White-Collar Robots Are Coming For Jobs versus Wired’s Chill: Robots Won’t Take All Our Jobs. Who should we *really* believe?!
The truth is there isn’t one easy answer. What we can do is prepare ourselves to move into technical careers required to create and manage the robot revolution. Case in point: AI is one of the fastest growing tech sectors, and companies are hiring.
If you’re itching to stay ahead of the curve in this Brave New World of work, here are five ways to get started. You’ll get an extra 15% off the already discounted prices with use of code MADNESS15 at checkout:
This bundle contains five e-books jam-packed full of essential robotics knowledge, including the Robot Operating System — the popular framework used by hobbyists to design and build real, working robots. Plus, this e-book package is seriously hands-on with tons of ROS projects (like building a self-driving car) that will have you putting theory into practice in no time.
Normally $199.95, it’s now on sale for $15. With the code applied, you can grab it for just $12.75.
This huge bundle covers all things AI across over 80 hours of training. You’ll get a deep dive in essential AI concepts such as machine learning and data science, and more. Uncover the technical knowledge that powers everything from Apple’s Siri to Tesla’s self-driving cars, and add a kick to your résumé with some sweet new skills.
This bundle was once $1,599, but it’s on sale for $59. With the code applied, you can grab it now for just $50.15.
This premium course collection covers all things machine learning, spanning ten courses comprising 63.5 hours of training.
