Several technology trends like machine learning and artificial intelligence have emerged, and they continue to progress. The volume of data continues to grow as numbers pour in from wireless sensors, digital platforms and countless smartphones. Data scientists are now conceptualising more sophisticated algorithms. For instance, in a research
*, it was brought out that a retail bank in the United Kingdom incorporated machine learning algorithms, and was able to narrow down fraudulent transactions with an accuracy of about 90 percent. Now is the time to get on to machine learning and AI.
upGrad is enabling this generation to dive deep into emerging technological fields. The online education brand has launched an initiative wherein learners can start pursuing their Master’s/Diploma in Machine Learning and AI at an initial commitment of INR 10,000 from top universities like Liverpool John Moores University (UK) and IIIT Bangalore. Learners get Alumni status from LJMU & IIIT Bangalore.
The batch starts on 1st June, 2020. Learners will get the opportunity to experience
upGrad’s platform and industry-relevant programs till June 15, 2020, and then make a final decision to go or not to go ahead with the program. Once this period ends, those who wish to continue can pay the entire amount and continue their learning journey. If a learner thinks that the course is not aligned with his or her ambition, they can discontinue, and take the certificate for the completed modules. In the field of education, this is quite a novel opportunity to get a hands-on learning experience, and then taking a decision on the admission. What’s more exciting is that, nearly 1000 learners have taken up this opportunity and 70,000 queries have been dropped across a wide range of Master’s/Diploma and Global MBA programs.
Here are some more details about these programs:
Master of science in Machine Learning and AI from Liverpool John Moores University
This is an 18-month program, which will enable working professionals to pursue a Master’s degree from a UK university while they work from the comfort of their homes. Post the completion of this program, they can also contemplate a PhD from the same university, or avail lucrative packages reserved for Machine Learning engineers in global companies. What really ticks the needle in favour of this program is the flexibility that it grants working professionals. At upGrad, this program is provided at 1/10th the cost of on-campus degrees. The top learners will also get an all-participant fee paid opportunity to be part of the deSE conference in the UK along with the start of a global footprint and a chance to network with a strong alumni base.
