Inclusion and diversity in AI

Artificial intelligence is transforming every walk of life, from banking to telecommunications, social media to e-commerce.

"Life - Work” Harmony and Staying motivated through the pandemic

So how do you plan your day? Do you wake up in the morning and do all your work and then spend the day at work looking forward to being at home and not working?

And, you may end up stressing out if you’re not able to meet that expectation of balance.
