Demystifying AI and ML: An AI seminar to drive the future
Two tech titans, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk, have diametrically opposing views on Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML), with the latter sounding alarm bells on the risk of AI taking over jobs, manipulating social media and the rise of a machine dictator, while the former is batting for AI advancement for healthcare, consumer behavior analytics, autonomous driving and much more. While the proponents on both sides battle it out, one thing is for sure: AI and ML are here to stay and their proliferation on our daily lives is proof enough. Even then, mobile phones, voice assistants and smart appliances are just the tip of the iceberg.
According to the market research firm Tractica, the global AI software market is expected to experience massive growth, with revenue increasing from $9.5 billion in 2018 to $118.6 billion by 2025. Some of the world’s largest companies are already sold on the idea, and are investing heavily in AI.
So, if you’re sitting on Zuckerberg’s side of the table and want to understand the world of AI, get a glimpse of the great potential that AI has to offer or want to lead AI initiatives in your organisation, the ‘Demystifying AI and ML’ workshop organised by IIIT Hyderabad Machine Learning Lab is your calling.
The seminar is powered by TalentSprint, an edtech platform bringing transformational learning programs to young and experienced professionals.
Master AI/ML to drive initiatives in your organisation
The day-long seminar will be held on November 23, 2019 from 8.30 AM to 6 PM at The Citadel Hotel, Bengaluru. It will answer all your questions and mysteries surrounding AI – its basics, underlying technologies, current trends, new research in the area and much more from senior faculty of India's leading AI research group.
“AI has now gone beyond just hype. Real solutions in every walk, from human like conversational bots to very nuanced intelligence in cars to predictive maintenance in machines and more.
