Artificial Intelligence (AI) and its applications have created enough buzz in the world consistently to become the most sought after discipline academically. In contrast to natural intelligence displayed by humans, machines are being programmed for high-level cognitive processes like thinking, perceiving, learning, problem solving and decision making.
India, being the fastest growing economy with the second largest population in the world, has a significant stake in the AI revolution. AI with its countless potential applications is being used in non-tech sectors like
- Energy and Heavy Industries
The diploma program aims to deliver a cutting edge inter disciplinary educational experience to graduate applicants with an aspiration for building a prospective career.
Medical institutions abroad such as The Mayo Clinic, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, Massachusetts General Hospital, and National Health Service are using AI algorithms for their departments. Tech giants like IBM and Google are simultaneously developing AI algorithms for healthcare.
“MIT computer scientists are hoping to accelerate the use of artificial intelligence to improve medical decision-making, by automating a key step that’s usually done by hand — and that’s becoming more laborious as certain datasets grow ever-larger.”- MIT News Office.
I3T will explore this intersection between Healthcare and Technology. Infact reports suggest comprehensive technology solutions using AI will help make primary care more accurate and dependable for India. At I3T we aim at bridging this gap so that the current breed of health-tech players will come up with various solutions using technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI).
Along with conducting research we are also keen to ensure that the forthcoming generations understand the implications and are more prepared to handle Public Health
I3T being a Public Health Research institute will delve into Digital Health, study application of AI in Healthcare and explore their demand in the local healthcare networks. At I3T we have designed our Post Graduate Program in Artificial Intelligence with a major thrust on its application in the Healthcare sector.
Students will be exposed to International Seminars and Workshops where hands on Training will be provided by experts in the field. They will learn how to process Learning (the acquisition of information and rules for using the information), Reasoning (using rules to reach approximate or definite conclusions) and Self-correction.
WHAT WE OFFER
Our program, spread across two semesters in 12 months covers a wide range of topics. The 1st Semester consists of 5 modules and starts with an introduction to Artificial Intelligence leading upto Essentials of Python, Mathematics required for AI, Basic Algorithms and Machine Learning.
The 2nd Semester is also divided into 5 modules that include Deep Learning Methods, Reinforcement Learning, Computer Vision and Image Analysis, Speech Recognition System and Natural Language Processing.
The field of Artificial Intelligence offers a number of jobs which are currently in demand with a specific skill set. One can enter the job market as business intelligence developer, AI research scientist, robotics scientist etc. In addition to these known sector, our students will also be able to find jobs in the healthcare sector as hospitals in the city are looking to AI solutions to support operational initiatives that increase cost saving, improve patient satisfaction, and satisfy their staffing and workforce needs.
