IIT Madras Launches Two Free Online Courses On AI

Indian Institute of Technology Madras (IITM) in association with the National Programme on Technology Enhanced Learning (NPTEL) platform has launched two new free online courses on artificial intelligence. Beginning from January 2021, the institute is currently inviting applications for these two courses, till 25th January 2021. 

Led by Professor Deepak Khemani from the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, these courses — AI: Constraint Satisfaction and Artificial Intelligence: Knowledge Representation and Reasoning will help students gain problem-solving capabilities using artificial intelligence. Although the courses are free, the institute is also offering an e-certificate for successful candidates, which would cost ₹1000.

When asked, Professor Khemani stated to the media that there is massive traction of courses on data science and AI amid working professionals and college students amid the pandemic. And that’s why IITM, with this course, aims at “helping people acquire new skills and thus become job-ready.”
