Artificial intelligence and Machine learning (AI&ML)
The department of Artificial intelligence and Machine learning is established during the academic year 2022-23 with an intake of 60.
Artificial intelligence and Machine learning areas are the branches of Computer Science and rapidly growing technologies, used to create intelligent systems that can simulate human thinking capability and behavior across service and non-service sectors. In other words, AI&ML enables the Computer to mimic the human brain in terms of making decisions accurately without manual intervention.
AI&ML is a branch of study or discipline which includes theories, standards, methods and innovations of various different domains like mathematics, cognitive science, electronics and embedded systems to make intelligent systems that mimic human behaviour. AI&ML focuses on collecting, categorizing, strategizing, analyzing and interpreting data. It is a specialised branch that deals with the development of embedded systems like robotics and IoT based applications. It also incorporates the concepts of machine learning and deep learning model building for solving various computational and real-world business problems.
AI&ML is the most sought-after course with niche skills & technology of Computer Science & Engineering, which has wide applications across the industry sector like Banking, Finance Securities & Insurances, Retail, Healthcare, Defense, Entertainment, Agriculture and many more. The Course covers key concepts like AI-based technologies, including Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Computer Vision, Natural Language Processing, Speech Recognition, Text speech, and Reinforcement Learning etc.,
The 4-year B.E. in AI&ML program presents exposure to hands-on technologies to create applications and solutions in Python, R, NoSQL, Data Warehousing & Data Mining, Big Data Analytics and algorithms.etc., There are many applications of AI&ML in our day-to-day life. For example
- Manufacturing robots.
- Self-driving cars
- Smart assistants,
- Proactive healthcare management
- Disease mappinp
- Automated financial investing
- Virtual Tourism/Transportation booking agent
- Social media monitoring
This course helps to explore concepts such as AI, Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Image Processing, Virtual Reality and IoT and its applications.
Fabulous employment opportunities are available for AI&ML engineers & significantly increased worldwide in the past three years. AIML department provides opportunities for the students to participate in Project showcase, Hackathons, Ideathons, Competitions, Startup & Entrepreneurial activities, Social activities etc.,
The department will have the best infrastructure with the latest high-end computing facilities to cater the academic needs of the VTU prescribed syllabus and provide a real-time experience to the students. The department will have renowned faculty members with long academic experience and experts from industries in India and abroad.
