Program Overview

OVERVIEW The AI industry market size is projected to be $266.92 billion by 2027 at a CAGR of 33.2%*. As modern organisations turn towards Machine Learning ( ML) and Articial Intelligence (AI) for responsive and automated business solutions, skilled talent that will help them harness the full potential of these technologies, are in high demand. Keeping this need in mind, the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IIT Bombay) has designed the Certificate Program in Machine Learning & AI with Python to up-skill and train professionals in the world’s most in-demand programming language. This six-month program, delivered through live online sessions by leading IIT Bombay faculty and industry experts, will enable participants to leverage ML and AI for automation, better decision-making, and competitive advantage. Participants will also get a comprehensive understanding of key machine learning algorithms, including popular methods like classication and regression, optimization techniques, neural networks, decision trees, agent-based models, and deep convolutional networks.
