Hyderabad Next Cohort: March 2019
Bengaluru Next Cohort: March 2019
This Program is designed for gaining practical knowledge for the working professionals.
3 Modules are structured from the practitioner's viewpoint and hence is very different from typical academic programs, though retaining the academic rigor of IIIT Hyderabad. This is different from most other programs offered in the market.
5 Components of the Program viz. Lectures, Individual Labs, Mentor Support, Hackathons and Industry Interface provide a high impact experience. Most of the programs from academic institutions are largely online in nature.
Peer-learning becomes possible because of this being a 3-Month Intensive Contact Program.
Machine Learning is a deep technology. It requires a learning format that is tailored for working professionals.
After about 40 hours of work every week at your workplace, generating the intensity and energy required for learning such a technology is not easy without faculty contact and peer learning. This is why the Program was designed as an intense contact + online format.
Further, most people find it difficult to complete online programs. And those who finish it, do not have the same level of learning as against participants of a contact program. The online only programs have some way to go before they can deliver this level of effectiveness.
The Program is designed for building expertise among professionals. While no placement assistance is provided, IIIT-H and TalentSprint Executive Program Alumni can register for Career Acceleration Support (CAS) to get:
This Program is not intended for freshers starting an IT career. It is to serve as an entry point for working professionals into the field of Machine Learning/AI roles.
You will be able to build and deploy AI/ML and Deep Learning applications at your workplace. The content will be a mix of asynchronous Lectures and Workshops from industry leaders as well as world-renowned faculty.
The Program Format includes Masterclass Lectures, Hands-on Tutored Labs, Hackathons, Industry Workshops, Mentorship and Peer Learning.
While the strength for Lab Exercise will be limited to 50 Participants supported by a Mentor, Masterclass will have a maximum strength of 200 Participants.

There was a time when experience had a premium badge in the Tech Industry. Alas, that premium is eroding fast and has even become a hindrance. Traditional IT roles are declining as disruptive technologies like AI, Machine Learning, and Big Data are taking center stage. A career shift into these disruptive technologies is becoming a necessity for tech professionals.
Kohli Center on Intelligent Systems (KCIS) at IIIT-H was established in 2015 to give a fillip to research, teaching and entrepreneurship in the Broad Intelligent Systems Area. The Machine Learning Lab acts as an umbrella organization at the institute to both strengthen the existing groups and facilitate new activities in related areas. It also acts as a force multiplier in attracting projects and funding from the government and industry sectors, coordinating research in related domains across different IIIT-H centers, as well as in the institute's research collaboration with other academic institutions in the country.
