Automation Is Coming

Today’s workforce is struggling to keep up with the evolving push towards automation and increasing concerns revolving around “brain drain” and America’s devastatingly unprepared workforce. Colaberry Labs has developed an innovative solution to this growing problem. Colaberry has spent thousands of hours analyzing market trends and sifting through mounds of data in hopes of streamlining the training process for future data scientists and “data thinkers” alike..

By 2030, AI and machine learning will have taken a firm grasp on the future workforce ushering in a huge skills gap for those underrepresented backgrounds which today seem to be just skating by or not faring well at all. The AI sector is reported to be growing to a value of over $13 trillion by 2030.
