Philip Kisray, SVP and GM International Education, Wiley said, “Forbes estimates that by 2025, companies will spend INR 91,537 crore on building or buying AI products. It is a testimony to the increasing hegemony of AI in business decisions and strategy. Today, organisations are embroiled in a war of talent due to a lack of relevant skills in the existing workforce. The penetration of industry 4.0 technologies across industries calls for skilled talent and workforce prepared enough to meet the demands of the complex business dynamics.”
