Artificial Intelligence and Data Science (AI&DS) is an emerging field growing exponentially which consists of a set of tools and techniques used to extract useful knowledge from data. With the increasing demand for undergraduates for AI and DS domain in the Global market over the last few years influenced us to let the students provide a platform to explore them in this trending domain. Building human-level thought processes through the creation of artificial intelligence (AI) is the state-of-the-art in Computer Science. Intelligent machines are influenced by emerging technologies, smart devices, sensors, computing power, faster data processing, huge storage and human-machine interaction capabilities. Data Science (DS) is an interdisciplinary field with the ability to extract knowledge/insights from data - be it structured, unstructured, or semi-structured data. AI and DS delivers data driven solution using computational principles, methods and systems for extracting knowledge from data and modern computational systems that demonstrate capabilities of perception, reasoning, learning and action that are typical of human intelligence.
B. Tech. (Artificial Intelligence and Data Science) programme kick-starts in our College, from the academic year 2021–22 with a vision to build the intellectual capital of the society through knowledge-based education, and innovations. AI and DS course aims to indulge knowledge not only in the core technologies such as artificial intelligence, data warehousing, data mining and data modelling but also make the students expertise in thrust areas such as machine learning and big data analytics. Students with this course can gain thorough knowledge in: Intelligent Systems, Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Reinforcement Learning, Natural Language Processing, Text Technologies for Data Science, Data Analytics and Mining, Big Data Management, Data Visualization, Bayesian Data Analysis, Probabilistic Modeling and Reasoning, Cloud Technologies, Internet of Things, Statistical Learning and visualization skills.
This graduate program has a comprehensive coverage of applied mathematics used in data science and artificial intelligence while preparing the students to analyze, design and experiment solutions to problems. The curriculum targets technical and design skills, AI knowledge, and competencies needed to master strategic analytical methods and tools, and data management, with the objective of creating innovative strategies to solve challenging career opportunities in Artificial Intelligence and Data Science are Data Scientist, Knowledge Engineer, Data Engineer, Business Analyst, Data Analyst, Business Intelligence Engineer and Research Scientist.
The Department of Artificial Intelligence and Data Science was established in the session 2021-22 with a view of imparting state of the art education in cutting edge technologies of the world. The sanctioned intake is 60 students per year, approved by AICTE, New Delhi, RTM Nagpur University, Directorate of Technical Education (DTE), Maharashtra. At departmental level, under banner of departmental forum FACEIT, student under guidance of teaching faculties, organize different technical, curricular and Extra-Curricular activities. Dr. Sanjay M. Malode is the Head of the Department.
