Why AI and Data Science?

Data Science and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are no more BUZZ words which people use to show off, they are real and they are here and now. If your parents or teachers tell you that “AI is the future”, do correct them by replying “AI is the present disrupting the future”. AI is not a job killer it is a BIG creator of jobs, of much better prospects than what existed. Are you up to it? International Data Corporation is forecasting that spending on AI and machine learning will grow from $8B in 2016 to $47B by 2020. One major impact happening is in the engineering curricula and delivery. All branches of engineering and science are going to embrace AI and data science as a core subject.

The course will cover the following to meet the immediate requirements of the industries.

  • Exposure to problems that need AI solutions.
  • Mathematics for AI - basics of LA and Optimization.
  • Problem-solving in Matlab and Python.
  • Introduction to Data Mining and associated processes
  • Machine Learning: (Conventional).
