The fast evolving world of technology is dominating work places like never before. Fourth generation industry is already here and is placing heavy demand upon the education system. Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Block Chains, Virtual Reality and Cloud based computing have already become a norm in the industry rather than an exception. There is an urgent need for the technical education system to prepare its graduates for the future industry that demand new skill sets and competencies.

 ASAP has started an initiative to cover the skill gap of Engineering graduates through Advanced Skill Development Center. ASDC acquaints the students with various futuristic skill courses like Artificial Intelligence, Machine learning, Data analytics etc. Artificial Intelligence is the development of computer systems that are able to perform tasks that would require human intelligence. Machine learning is an application of Artificial Intelligence that gives machines the ability to learn and improve without the help of humans or new programming. 

Artificial Intelligence and Machine learning (AIM) is an emerging area of great interest nowadays. This gives rise to an open opportunity for the engineering students, graduates and working professionals of Kerala. It may be achieved by providing AI & ML specific courses to them. ASAP , in collaboration with IIT Madras, IIT Palakkad and College of Engineering Trivandrum developed the curriculum for AI & ML course. The certification for the course will be provided by IIT Madras.

The goal of ASAP is to make Kerala an AI hub through ASDC by skilling 2000 trainees over a period of 3 years.


Duration of the course: 3 terms  ( each term being 200 hrs / 4 months)
