The spike in the demand for skilled Artificial Intelligence and Data Science employees has led to IIT Roorkee launching two new MTech programmes in the fields.
IT Roorkee has launched two new MTech programmes under the recently established Centre for Artificial Intelligence and Data Science (CAIDS). Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Data Science (DS) have the power to solve real-life problems and benefit humankind by harnessing valuable information from big data.
Academicians, professionals, policymakers, and business leaders are working towards creating a sustainable society with intelligent automation of complex real-life tasks powered by AI and DS.
Such efforts provide better research opportunities and innovation leading to skill enhancement and empowerment of the Indian workforce. IIT Roorkee has set up a Centre for Artificial Intelligence and Data Science (CAIDS) with the above in mind.
Promoting research in artificial intelligence and data science
The CAIDS intends to develop significant and effective methodologies towards the advancement of artificial intelligence (AI) and data science (DS) applications and studies in the country, and thereby promote teaching, training and development of manpower, applied research, entrepreneurship and innovation in the field of AI and DS.
The primary objective of CAIDS is to promote innovation and research in the fields of AI and DS, provide vital and active technical support to national and international projects, and support Make-in-India and Aatmanirbhar Bharat initiatives of the Government of India by seeding entrepreneurship and start-ups in AI and DS domains.
