-Recognize the emergence of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning as a competitive strategy.
-Understand foundations of data science on which the AI models are built.
-Learn descriptive, diagnostic, predictive, and prescriptive analytics and their applications in generating solutions for business problems.
-Learn the functioning of artificial neural networks (ANN) and deep learning algorithms such as recurrent neural network (RNN) and Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) with applications.
-Application of AI techniques to solve problems in various sectors such as Aerospace, Banking financial services and insurance (BFSI), E-commerce, Manufacturing, Retail, Sports and Services.
Instructors of the programme come with a combined experience of over 70 years across teaching and consulting in the AI domain. Prominent names include Professor U Dinesh Kumar, Decision Sciences and Chair of Excellence; Professor Rajluxmi V Murthy, Decision Sciences; Kumar Rahul, Alumnus of IIMB and Research Scholar of IIMK; Manaranjan Pradhan, Alumnus of IIMB; Naveen Kumar Bhansali, Adjunct faculty and alumnus of IIM Bangalore; and Sharada Sringeswara, IIM Bangalore and BITS Pilani alumni, among others.
