Artificial intelligence (AI) is an evolving field that requires broad training. Built with the focus of teaching working professionals how to build deep learning predictive models for AI, the National Institute of Technology, Warangal (NITW) has launched a certification program on AI and Machine Learning in Hyderabad. The program comprises over 350 hours of workshops, mentor sessions, and classroom and lab sessions. The program would commence from June 9 in Hyderabad for an initial batch of 60.

For this, Warangal has partnered with SIG Big Data Analytics of CSI to launch a certificate program in AI and Machine Learning exclusively for working professionals. NV Ramana Rao, Director, E&ICT Academy of NIT, said, “This is the first step in leveraging academic and industry resources to up-skill people in the fields of machine learning, big data analytics, IoT, data mining, security and privacy. I am looking forward to set up various centers of excellence and R&D Labs along with training in emerging technologies including AI and ML in the near future,” he stated.

As execution partner for this program, the company had segmented targeted working professionals into up-skilling, cross-skilling and re-skilling and identified relevant career transformation partners, said Surya Putchala, CEO of Zettamine Labs. “In lieu of a capstone project, we have put together a special four weekend module that focuses on use cases derived from actual industry projects,” he said. ‘‘India suffers in quality of university education and building ecosystems of multi-disciplinary stakeholders and this program will address both these challenges,” said   BVR Mohan Reddy, chairman of Cyient.
