There are 5 reasons why serious professionals prefer the IIIT Hyderabad AIML Program.
"Structured curriculum with industry projects and hackathons makes this course very effective."
Swaroop Shivaram, Principal Engineer, Target
"The AIML program gave the real understanding of working with ML algorithms that I could even tackle Kaggle problems. Post completion, I could confidently get into the ML team at my workplace too."
Sravya Yellapragada, Development Engineer, Pramati Technologies
"Doing hackathons with a diverse group of people gave an opportunity to learn and share ideas, knowledge with them."
Tejeswini, Project Engineer, Skyrus Engineering
"Hands-on learning, tech support, experienced faculty, exposure to real-world problems - the right way to learn AI/ML for professionals."
Sai Kiran Gumma, Vice President, JP Morgan Chase
Industry is clearly looking for professionals who can build AI/ML applications. Professionals with hands-on experience will be preferred by the industry.
This program is designed to reach higher levels of learning as per Bloom's Taxonomy. The program will not only help you Understand, but also enable you to Apply, Analyse and Evaluate which are far higher levels of expertise.
A participant will do 40+ individual lab experiments and 8 mini-hackathons. In addition they will also be participating in 4 hackathons, which includes select kaggle experiments. This will help the participant not only learn and implement AI/ML but also showcase your expertise for the industry to recognize.
Industry needs professionals with technical expertise and domain expertise to work together to solve today's challenges. Generally, domain expertise comes with experience, and tech expertise comes with young professionals.
As AI/ML has recently entered into the main-stage for companies and professionals, and the education system has very limited capacity for producing fresh graduates with AI/ML expertise, the industry is facing severe shortage. NASSCOM predicts that there are 140,000 vacancies while not even 30% of these seats are being fulfilled.
This has opened up great opportunities for working professionals. Those who are developing AI/ML expertise now are in great demand by the industry.
This demand will continue till the education system churns out enough good quality graduates with AI/ML expertise. The fact that the education system right from school is focusing on building AI/ML learning from a young age, and that many engineering institutions have launched focused programs like BTech in AI/ML, the supply will catch up with industry demand over the next 3-5 years.
This opens up a good window of opportunity for working professionals. If someone enters this area in the next 6 months to 1 year, they will have more than 2 year window to showcase their expertise and become the lead for the new generation that would come in.
Professionals are presented with a unique window of opportunity with AI/ML expertise. In the 1990s a large number of science graduates shifted to technology, and they are now defining the Technology sector. Similarly, those who enter the AI/ML area now will have a distinct advantage in the future of the industry.
Here's why this is the right time to invest in building your expertise:
Based on the data since lockdown, we find that serious professionals are using this time to get ready for the future.
Two things are happening as you wait and watch. 1) Younger and more dynamic professionals are going to enter with knowledge, 2) the experience premium will continue to drop thereby making senior professionals less attractive to companies. Hence, earlier one moves into sunrise areas will be better.
The Program will be delivered in interactive digital format, retaining effectiveness while maintaining safety. The format uniquely combines the benefits of an in-class program with the flexibility and safety of online delivery.

Learning effectiveness and experience of the participants on this program has been high with NPS of over 80 (NPS of 50 and above considered excellent while 70 and above is considered "world class")
In the wake of Covid-19, the world is going through an uncertain phase. Working from home, not being able to socialize, and concerns about personal and family safety are taking a toll on all of us. We hope the situation will improve soon.
