Autonomous systems, robots, and AI are transforming business and society, boosting productivity and driving economic growth.
In a nutshell, autonomous systems are systems that can accomplish a task, achieve a goal, or interact with its surroundings with minimal to no human involvement. Some examples include self-driving cars, UAVs, smart manufacturing robots, care robots for the elderly, and virtual agents for training or support.
A study by Forbes reports that AI/ML, robotics, and autonomous machines are expected to drive 70% of GDP growth between now and 2030 globally. Further, the report also states that the massive adoption of autonomous systems could soon transition superpowers like America into a machine economy.
To fully move and embrace this intelligent system's future, companies need a skilled workforce to support these initiatives and help the organisation prepare for the future.
The PG Level Advanced Certification Programme on Machine Learning and AI for Autonomous Systems aims to prepare professionals to lead and navigate the era of intelligent automation.
The PG Level Advanced Certification Programme on Machine Learning and AI for Autonomous Systems by IISc, in association with TalentSprint, prepares professionals to become adept at managing and scaling intelligent automation initiatives in their organisations.
