As AI skills are in high demand, I am excited to showcase my proficiency in this field and attract potential clients seeking expert advice.

I have followed your instructions and updated my Development & IT consultation to include the "AI & Machine Learning" default topic, ensuring better discoverability in filtered client searches.

Moreover, I have added relevant AI skills tags to my profile to highlight my areas of expertise, and I am in the process of creating a specialized profile for my Generative AI work to further showcase my capabilities.

I want to share a fantastic AI tool that has revolutionized my work - Tensor.

All of my 100+ Consultations / Projects this year have had an AI component to them. Think of AI being added to reading, writing, and math. Within two years, the majority of freelancers that are using Upwork will be using some form of AI to complete their jobs.
