Did you know Top Schools in the world have already introduced AI in their Curriculum and Corporates are struggling to get their workforce ready for the AI jobs? Don’t miss your opportunity stay ahead of the curve as we bring an experiential and Immersive Program from the Industry Experts and Leaders. Gain this unique credentials to add to your resume. This is the Industry's unique program that offers an end-to-end view of Artificial Intelligence and takes you beyond the Basics with Hands on learning.
Artificial Intelligence is the ability of machines to seemingly think for themselves. A prime example is an autonomous/driverless vehicle. Harvard Business Review estimates that 80% of companies are already investing in AI and most are facing challenges hiring the capabilities they need to implement a useful AI application or product.
Data Science is core to the implementation of Artificial Intelligence which holds the key to solutions to the problems being solved. Data Science and Artificial Intelligence are amongst the hottest fields of the 21st century, that will impact all segments of daily life by 2025. A report from Indeed, one of the top job sites, showed a 30% increase in demand for data scientists year over year and a 348% increase since 2013, a dramatic upswing.
iStart Valley's 12 weeks Artificial Intelligence and Data Science Program is a thoughtfully curated keeping in mind the new generation of AI Engineers, Machine Learning Experts, Data Scientists etc.. Taught by the Berkley Haas Certified Faculty and the Leading Experts in the field of AI, course offers a very unique immersive experiential learning opportunity.
In this course, you will learn the fundamental concepts of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and how neuroscience plays an important role in the evolution of AI. This curriculum will provide an introductory overview of artificial intelligence techniques and place a particular emphasis on neural networks and machine learning concepts. The course will have three phases:
Phase 1: Understand and Explore Data Science and Visualization
Phase 2: Building blocks of AI - Machine Learning, AI Techniques and Neuroscience
Phase 3: Application of AI - Real-Life use case Driven and Experiential
Course includes hands on labs leveraging Jupyter Notebook. No prior Programming experience required.
The course entails an interdisciplinary approach to discuss past, present and future of AI, it’s power of disruption across the industries and multiple domains, compare and differ from how the brain works, and the way systems actually learn and work. We will provide you with real life use cases, examples throughout the course that will elevate your understanding and add context to the broader concept of AI and neuroscience.
Pre-requisite: Course is designed for high school students, Innovators, Creators, Startup Enthusiaists, anyone who want to go beyond the basic. Exposure to Linear Algebra and Statistics is preferred but not a requisite. No Computer Science or Programming is necessary. Whether you want to pursue Law, Business or Engineering, this is a must attend course.
Schedule: This is a 12 weeks program, with 1 Hour of Hands on session starting 10 AM Central, June 14th Every Sunday,
