The Indian Institute of Science will now be going to offers an MTech degree in the AI starting from these new sessions, according to the report.
The two-year course will come into the growing demand for machine learning, artificial intelligence and some of the related streams that have application in the industries ranging from aerospace to healthcare engineering.
“We’re looking at students from computer science, electronics and communication, and electrical engineering,” Prof Y Narahari, IISc’s division head for electrical engineering and computer science, said in the report.
The course will as of now take around 40 students initially. Admissions will end in the month of July and classes will begin in the month of August.
The report also revealed that the interdisciplinary courses would be offered by a division of engineering, computer science, and electronics departments. Different applicants from the multiple disciplines will be called for the interviews based on their scores of GATES.
The course will allow the students to either opt for a related internship programme outside the campus or to work with a mentor at the IISc.
The subjects which will be going to be taught include machine learning with the large data sets, machine learning for the signal processing, theory and practice of deep learning, deep learning for the computer visions and online prediction learning.
There was also a report earlier which shows that IISc has tied up with the Mindtree Ltd for the research in the field of data science, artificial intelligence and NLP. The collaboration will facilitate the teaching and research for the AI in both the natural language processing and data sciences.
