Describe an area of science that interests you.

You should say

What is it?

How did you learn about it?

Why are you interested in it?


Although I have less interest in science, there is a burgeoning field in science that interests me. The name of that field is Artificial Intelligence.

It is a growing field which is a combination of science and engineering. Through this technology, machines become capable of behaving intelligently.

How did you learn about it?

Last year on my birthday my father gifted me an iPhone.Initially, it had looked like an ordinary mobile phone to me, but later on, when I used one of its applications named SIRI, I was perplexed.

When I had learned more about SIRI, I came to know that this application uses the technology of Artificial Intelligence.

Why are you interested in it.?

The fact that SIRI can save me time, and it could take care of some menial tasks performed by me caught my attention.

Being an ambitious person, I would like to carve out a niche for myself by going beyond the conventional domain.

Since the whole world is on a spree of digitalisation, I would like to catch this opportunity with both the hands.

Hence I have taken this bold decision to make a career in this area of science which has the potential of bringing a paradigm shift in the ways we do our work. To have a promising career in this area of science, I will leave no stone unturned.

The day is not far away when this branch of science will perform most of our monotonous and menial tasks.
