  • Collaborate with leading AI front runner and other domain experts for the design and implementation of new business and implementation techniques.

Overview:

  • Artificial Intelligence or Machine learning (AI/ML) is a broad set of software capabilities that make software smarter.
  • AI/ML is fundamentally changing how businesses operate across all sectors, including manufacturing, healthcare, IT, and transportation.
  • Companies like Google, Amazon, Netflix, Facebook, Flipkart, Ola and Swiggy, who are using AI/ML, have witnessed huge growth and profits.
  • Over 35% of revenue for Amazon and Flipkart is generated by product recommendations.
  • 80% of Netflix users select movies based on their recommendation system.
  • Companies like Intel, Microsoft, Twitter, Ford, Intel and Apple have successfully integrated AI/ML into their products and are seeing a growth of about 30% improvement in areas like revenue, growth rate and efficiency. 

Opportunities:

  • Companies like Flipkart, Amazon and Google are offering starting salaries of Rs. 12 - 18 lakhs per annum (LPM) for freshers with AI/ML skills.
  • Companies are offering Rs. 50 LPM for someone with 5+ years of experience and top AI/ML employees enjoy salaries in range of Rs. 1 crore per annum.
  • Salaries for AI/ML experts in USA can reach up to Rs. 5 crore per annum.
  • Bangalore, Delhi, Mumbai, Pune, Chennai and Hyderabad have the highest number of AI/ML job openings.
  • Number of startups and investments by Venture Capitalists in AI/ML space are growing exponentially.
  • Total investment in AI/ML was about Rs. 4000 crore in 2010, while in 2015, it is about Rs. 25,000 crore.
  • While there were only 100 active startups in AI in 2010, in 2017 there were about 1000 active startups.
  • AI/ML field is growing at a rapid pace, promising higher salaries and better opportunities in future.

Course Curriculum:

  • AI/ML program requires an understanding of basic Mathematical concepts and Python programming, which are taught in first and second academic years.
  • AI/ML program consists of a total of four courses taught in third and fourth years, along with one main project.
  • The first course, "Foundations of Machine Learning", introduces the machine learning way of solving problems (as opposed to programmatic way) and gives introduction to various Machine Learning (ML) algorithms.
  • The second course, "Data Science" introduces the practice of AI/ML as done in industry, to get students ready for real-world AI/ML projects. This is followed by summer internship in Machine Learning.
  • The third course "Deep Neural Networks" teaches students the fundamentals of modern age tools.
  • The fourth course, "AI Processors & Architectures", introduces students to concepts of advanced AI/ML and expose them to cutting edge research in the field of AI/ML.
  • All Advance courses will be taught in successive semesters.
  • AI/ML is a foundational technology that will disrupt society and lead to decades of innovation.
  • From driverless cars to how doctors identify and treat diseases, AI/ML is poised to forge a future of endless new possibilities.
  • Experts in AI/ML command salaries of about Rs. 1 crore per annum. By learning about AI/ML today, you will be ready for the opportunities of tomorrow.
