Artificial city

CDAC and IITs jointly offer an online course on artificial intelligence

Students with basic knowledge of machine learning can apply for an online course on Applied Artificial Intelligence (AI) offered by some Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT).

The course will teach ways to implement AI in industrial use and in areas such as healthcare, applications in smart city projects, etc.

The course, which includes demonstrations and walkthroughs of code and industrial use cases, is part of the ongoing National Supercomputing Mission (NSM). This six-year mission is carried out jointly by the Center for Development of Advanced Computing (CDAC) and the Indian Institute of Science under the aegis of the Department of Science and Technology and the Ministry of Electronics and Informatics.

The online course, which will be jointly conducted by IITs – Kharagpur, Madras, Palakkad and Goa – will cover topics such as AI accelerator fundamentals and system configuration, accelerated deep learning, in-depth science end-to-end acceleration and industrial use cases of AI acceleration.
