Specialist Diploma in Data Science (Artificial Intelligence)
With recent advances in deep learning technologies, Artificial Intelligence is gathering momentum to be one of the key pillars of the next Industry Revolution. Billions of dollars in investments are pouring into this space and an increasing number of organisations would be looking into acquiring talent to help them develop intelligent applications that harness the power of AI to help them gain a competitive edge. Graduates of the course will have the relevant skillsets to build data-driven AI applications and cognitive products.
The objectives of the Specialist Diploma in Data Science (Artificial Intelligence) are to provide foundational training in the fundamental concepts and methods of statistics and programming for data science, as well as in specialized skill sets in the area of applied machine learning and AI-human interfaces (such as chatbots). Graduates of the course will be competent in applying machine-learning algorithms to design and develop intelligent software applications and cognitive products.
This course is suitable for working adults employed in sectors that require expertise in applied artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning such as software application development, internet, government, fintech, transport, logistics, cybersecurity, telecommunications, healthcare, retail, education and manufacturing. In particular, working adults who need to be equipped with technical and practical AI skills to build systems that take advantage of available user data, stand to benefit well from the course. The course contains a mix of theory and application.
Students in this course are required to bring a notebook computer to class. The necessary software is provided free-of-charge to students for the duration of the course.
