Technology professionals in India now have a new learning opportunity with the launch of a programme on artificial intelligence and machine learning by the International Institute of Information Technology, Hyderabad (IIIT-H). The course ‘Foundations for Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning’ was launched on Tuesday.
“Every corporate, every company is investing very heavily into artificial intelligence and machine learning. You would have heard about the efforts by the big corporates. But, beyond that, every company, whether you are working in banking, whether you are working in manufacturing, whether you are working in services, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) can do a lot for you, can make your work far more efficient,” said P J Narayanan, III-H director.
“It has been repeatedly said in the last year that AI/ML is the next industrial revolution. We believe this programme is a bridge that will help today’s technology professionals successfully cross over to the new era of automation and intelligent systems,” said Santanu Paul, co-founder and CEO of TalentSprint, which is the associated partner for the course.
IIIT-H will conduct two-day classes for four months for senior professionals in the industry with an aim to scale up efforts in light of the demand. The course has a hands-on teaching approach that would aid engineers to build “deep ML programming capabilities in their companies”.
