The Center for Development of Advanced Computing and several Indian Institute of Technology (IITs) plan to offer new online courses on artificial intelligence jointly.
The online course will primarily focus on applied artificial intelligence, and students with basic knowledge of machine learning can readily apply for the jointly offered course.
Several IITs, including Kharagpur, Madras, Palakkad, and Goa, will provide the online course along with CDAC from January 31st, 2022. The online course will teach learners how to implement artificial intelligence solutions in various sectors like healthcare, smart city applications, and many more.
As a part of the curriculum, learners will be given demonstrations, code walkthroughs, and industrial use cases to make them industry-ready. It will include subjects like artificial intelligence accelerator, system setups, end-to-end accelerated deep science, deep learning, and many more to teach learners the critical skills that the market currently demands.
The online course consists of 33 sessions of one hour each followed by a 30 minutes Q&A session to help learners resolve any doubts. The sessions will be conducted on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 5:00 PM to 6:30 PM.
The course is divided into two portions, and learners need to appear for an online examination after completion of each of the two sections. Prof. Satyadhyan Chickerur, Dr. Satyajit Das, Mr. Bharat Kumar, and Mr. Adesuyi Tosin will conduct the online sessions. The online course price is Rs. 800 for students and Rs. 3200 for others.
Recently, IIT Madras and IIM Ahmedabad incubated startup GUVI announced that it has partnered with the All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE) to offer free Python and artificial intelligence courses to students.
