The Objective of this program is to train students with a B.Tech degree in any of Computer Science and Engineering, or Electronics & Communications Engineering, or Electrical and Electronics Engineering, academically and through practice, to specialize in Artificial Intelligence and Data Science and earn a Master’s degree in this domain. Students with a B.Tech in Artificial Intelligence are also welcome if they are interested in earning a higher degree and acquiring greater depth of specialization in this domain.
In accordance with the stated objective, this course provides in the first two semesters courses that build up his (her) understanding of Data Bases, Big Data Analytics and also the approaches and tools of High Performance Computing. It also introduces fundamentals of Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Digital Image Processing and then follows it up with corresponding courses in Computational Sequence Modelling and Deep Learning. NLP and Image Processing and their mappings into Sequence Modelling and Deep Learning form the common basis of this program and acquiring professional competence in Artificial Intelligence. Students are also introduced to Reinforcement Learning with a flavor of Autonomous Systems. Additionally, they are introduced to Financial Risk Management where Data Analytics is going to play a growing role. Further, students are given the option of specializing in any one of the following three streams: Bio-Informatics, Communications, or Smart Industry. Each stream has a basic course followed by an advanced course.
The products of this program, i.e. the graduating students, are expected to be imbued with both motivation and competence to enter the fast-changing professional world of Artificial Intelligence and Data Science, or delve deeper into this domain and advance the state of the art by embarking into a Doctoral program in a related domain.
