- Translation of AI theory to practice
- Industrial solutions that are sustainable
- Awareness of the development of AI theory and the educational approach to AI training from an applied perspective
The information technology revolution has made India a significant global player. The current knowledge revolution backed by AI requires deep skills and understanding of this fascinating area. The development and adoption of this field is progressing at such a frantic pace that it is imperative to provide agile training and skill enhancement to the Indian workforce. Such courses will satisfy this need.
In addition to a project work on each subject, a mid-term and a final exam will be held in online mode. There will be a total of 28-30 hours of online classes per week. With post-class activities, such as assignments, reading and preparation, can take up to 20-22 hours per week.
