The International Institute of Information Technology (IIIT)-Hyderabad on Tuesday announced the launch of a programme in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) for technology professionals.

IIIT-Hyderabad's Machine Learning Laboratory in partnership with TalentSprint will offer the four-month programme on foundations of AI and ML from January 2018 to address rising demand.

The programme fee will be between Rs 1.5 lakh and Rs 2 lakh. The institute expects 1,000 students for the specialised course in the first year.

P.J. Narayanan, Director of IIIT-Hyderabad, told reporters that the first batch will have 300 students. The number will be scaled up to 500.

As one of the largest AI research clusters in the country, the institute is seeing a rising demand from the industry for AI and ML advisory services, technology prototypes and capacity building, he said.

American research and advisory firm Gartner Inc has forecast the creation of 2.3 million jobs in AI, ML, and Deep Learning (DL) within three years.

The hands-on teaching approach will enable engineers in industry to build deep ML programming capabilities in their companies, according to Narayana.
