Artificial Intelligence Salary in India: Beginners and Experts

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been one of the hottest buzzwords in the tech sphere for quite some time now. Read on to know the best job roles in artificial intelligence and the salary range in India: 

Artificial Intelligence salary in India for freshers starts at around Rs. 6 LPA and can stretch up to Rs. 12 LPA, with higher-end salaries usually offered by reputed companies like Amazon, Flipkart, Google, Facebook, Deloitte, IBM, Accenture, LinkedIn, Citrix, Verizon, SAP Labs, Nvidia, Tech Mahindra, etc. 
As for Machine Learning roles, the starting salary for freshers is generally Rs. 8 LPA, and it can go up to Rs. 10-17 LPA, depending on the skillset and educational background. 

AI engineer salary with standard educational qualifications is higher than the one without AI skills. For experts with 4-8 years of experience, the median salary range in this field can be around Rs. 35-50 LPA, and those with over ten years of experience can earn over Rs. 1 crore per annum.

Interesting Machine Learning Project Ideas For Beginners [2021]

As Artificial Intelligence (AI) continues to progress rapidly in 2021, achieving mastery over Machine Learning (ML) is becoming increasingly important for all the players in this field.
So, if you are a beginner, the best thing you can do is work on some Machine Learning projects.
Here are some cool Machine Learning project ideas for beginners-
Stock Prices Predictor: Business organizations and companies today are on the lookout for software that can monitor and analyze the company performance and predict future prices of various stocks.
Sentiment Analyzer: By creating an ML system that could analyze the sentiment behind texts, or a post, it would become so much easier for organizations to understand consumer behaviour.
Movie Ticket Pricing System: With the expansion of OTT platforms like Netflix, Amazon Prime, people prefer to watch content as per their convenience. The rising cost of the theatre ticket (along with the popcorn cost) leaves the cinema hall empty. Build a system that can smartly calculate the theatre ticket pricing depending on the interest of the viewers, social signals and supply-demand factors.
So, only by working with ML tools and ML algorithms can you understand how ML infrastructures work in reality. If you wish to excel in Machine Learning, you must gather hands-on experience with such machine learning projects.
