The world is changing and escalating towards Artificial Intelligence. To keep up with the changing technology landscapes, you need to have degree courses and professional training programs in Artificial Intelligence according to Industry and Academic Experts.
The Central Board of Secondary Education in India has already introduced AI in the curriculum as an optional subject, but no full-fledged degree courses are available in the whole country apart from the short term courses. These short term courses do not provide much depth about Artificial Intelligence.
Pearson Professional Programs (PPP) Vice President, Varun Dhamija said, “The world is looking at AI for its widespread applications in almost every industry and is considered to be the next big technological shift in industrial and smartphone revolution. The need of the hour is to make AI education more focused and easily accessible.”
As per the survey, 60% of Indians think that the world is intensifying towards a model where people engage in education over a lifetime which makes it age agnostic.
“More and more experienced professionals, young learners and mid-level employees now recognize the need for upskilling and formal training in AI and other fields to keep up with the changing job demands. We will see a rise in demand for full-time AI courses,” he added.
“There is a huge spike in the demand of AI-related courses in universities and skilled employees and this gap can only be filled by co-creation of an ecosystem where industry stalwarts and academicians come together by giving more industrial training and internships and by adding new AI-related courses, respectively,” he further said.
UAE last month inaugurated an Artificial Intelligence university named ‘Mohamed bin Zayed University of Artificial Intelligence (MBZUAI), said to be first in the world.
The University is offering graduate courses along with masters and Ph.D. masters and Ph.D. programs with classes to commence from September 20th next year.
