Frequently Asked Questions

There are 5 reasons why serious professionals prefer the IIIT Hyderabad AIML Program.

  • Program specifically designed for working professionals (Starts with problem definition, solution and the theory and concepts behind the solution)
  • Delivered in interactive digital format, retaining effectiveness while maintaining safety (Uniquely combines the benefit of the in-class program with the flexibility and safety of online delivery)
  • Hands-on program with ideal mix of theory and practice (over 60% of program is dedicated for lab experiments and individual and group work and hackathons with continuous mentor support)
  • Lectures by both Academic Professors and Industry Practitioners (a pracademic approach combining strong academic rigor coupled with practitioner perspectives)
  • Outstanding peer group with extensive group work (learn along with peers from wide range of industries, roles and positions)

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:

  • Industry needs more deep-tech (AI/ML) professionals and less gen-tech (Java, testing, project manager) professionals
  • Growth opportunity is available for deep-tech and risk is higher for gen-tech professionals in the current economic scenario
  • Professionals today have more time in hand to 'sharpen the saw' than ever before thanks to working from home and avoiding hours and hours of travel to office and back in traffic

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 LinkedIn Emerging Jobs Report lists AI as the #1 in the emerging jobs list for 2020. The average package for AI professionals is approx 15 lakhs across all experience levels and skill sets.

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.

Benefits of In-Class Delivery Flexibility and additional value of online
Synchronous program delivery by expert faculty Re-attend classes through recorded archives
Interact and get your doubts answered by faculty Access videos easily with searchable and indexed video archives
Work in group with other participants Learn from the comfort and safety of your home
Get support from mentor for labs and experiments Office hours with one-on-one mentor support

Program will be delivered on TalentSprint's patent pending, a leading digital learning platform of choice used for programs delivered by the likes of Google, IIM Calcutta, IIT Hyderabad, IISc, and IIT Kanpur to name a few.

Last 3 cohorts of the AI/ML program has been delivered on this platform and has achieved high completion rate.

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")
