Artificial intelligence and ChatGPT are on boom. AI tools have the potential to create jobs with high salaries.

It will allow customers to use Sodexo cards on mobiles to buy school meals or products from kirana stores, said Sodexo BRS’ global chief executive Aurelian Sonet.
Earlier, the firm offered a meal card for corporate employees but subsequently expanded to a rewards and benefits program that included air tickets, holiday development courses, and buying gadgets, among others.
Its cards can be used at 100,000-plus merchant outlets across over 1,800 cities in India, and over 125 online sites.
Indian startups move dollars to Gift City, other countries from SVB🏦
In the aftermath of the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank (SVB), banking units at the International Financial Services Centre (IFSC) in Gujarat’s Gift City emerged as one of the several options for startups and tech companies.
Apart from Gift City, startups have also moved their funds to banks in the US, India, and overseas locations of Indian lenders based on their customer and supplier presence.
Primarily, tech startups with little client or supplier presence in the US have been moving their money out of the US to Indian bank accounts via transfer pricing.
Avanti Finance, a tech-enabled non-banking finance company, has raised $24 million from Rabo Partnerships and IDH Farmfit Fund, among others.
D2C nutrition snacking startup Kikibix has raised $300K in a new round led by nine unicorn founders, along with Blume Ventures and US-based Angelist.
Online learning platform ixamBee has raised Rs 5 crore in its pre-Series A round led by Inflection Point Ventures (IPV).
