The Indraprastha Institute of Information Technology (IIIT), Delhi has planned to start a new MTech programme with specialisation in AI from the academic year starting in July 2018. Through the programme, graduates will be able to undertake industry careers involving innovation and problem solving using AI and Machine Learning (ML) technologies. The course will be spread over four semesters and the intake would be 20 students.
“The programme will be research-oriented and focus on foundations and advances in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning,” Mayank Vatsa, head of Infosys Centre for Artificial Intelligence at IIIT-Delhi, told PTI.
