- This overview of the field has no prerequisites.
How AI & Machine Learning Change Your Business Analyst Career
Anyone defining requirements for digital solutions must keep up with new trends in technology such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Big Data to remain relevant in the workforce.
The requirements elicitation and analysis process is just as crucial for AI initiatives as it is for any other project. Business stakeholders and technical experts like data scientists, chatbot developers, or machine learning engineers involved in an AI project need to collaborate to produce a successful product.
This course is a management overview of what emerging disciplines like Data Science, Data Analytics, Data Analysis, Business Analytics, and Chatbots (Conversational User Interfaces) offer organizations and how the role commonly called Business Analyst must morph to stay relevant.
Business Analysts Make Sure Technological Developments Drive Business Value
The role of the business analyst is to help organizations with their decision-making process by asking questions and analyzing data to better understand what they need. With the emergence of AI, data scientists need input from business analysts about what type of information is needed to generate AI models.
The course presents an example of the evolving role of business analysts in the development of a directed chatbot.
