1MicroMastersTM in Artificial Intelligence
In today’s world, computer science continues to be one of the fastest growing and changing fields across the business environment. With these frequent changes and growth comes the need to increase knowledge to stay on top of best practices. The Blended Program in Artificial Intelligence (BPAI) will help you gain expertise in one of the most fascinating and fastest growing areas of computer science.
Through an innovative online program that covers compelling topics in the field of Artificial Intelligence and its applications, this MicroMasters™ Program from Columbia University will give you an advanced and rigorous graduate-level foundation in Artificial Intelligence. Additionally, the program represents 25% of the coursework toward a Masters degree in Computer Science at Columbia.
During the course you will gain a solid understanding of the guiding principles of AI, as well as apply concepts of machine learning to real life problems and applications. Additionally, each student will work on designing and harnessing the power of Neural Networks and the broad applications of AI in fields of robotics, vision and physical simulation. Though Artificial Intelligence is one of the fastest-growing areas for high-tech professionals, there are too few qualified engineers, according to a recent Kiplinger report. Robotics and artificial intelligence will impact wide segments of daily life by 2025, with huge implications for a range of industries such as health care, transport and logistics, customer service, and home maintenance. The need for AI specialists exists in just about every field as companies seek to give computers the ability to think, learn, and adapt.
