IIIT-Hyderabad's Machine Learning Laboratory has announced 'Foundations of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML)', a new program for technology professionals. The industry is experiencing a rising demand for AI and ML advisory services, technology prototypes and capacity building. Many top engineering institutions in the country have strong academic and research programs in AI and ML, but the number of engineers graduating from them is quite negligible compared to the industry demand in these.IIIT-H’s hands-on teaching approach will enable engineers to build deep ML programming capabilities in their companies. The program will be executed in association with TalentSprint, a technology-driven platform that attracts youth with high aspirations and equips them for careers in the knowledge sector.
Santanu Paul, Co-founder and CEO of TalentSprint, commented, "It has been repeatedly said in the last year that AI/ML is the next industrial revolution. From self-driving cars to chat-bots to robo-advisors, the new age of computing is already upon us. We believe that this program is the bridge that will help today's technology professionals successfully cross over to the new era of automation and intelligent systems."
CS Jawahar, a leading expert in the field of AI and ML, will direct the program. He will be supported through the program by a team of academicians and industry leaders.
