The Indian Institute of Technology Madras has partnered with Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) to launch a web-enabled, user-oriented programme on “Industrial AI” targeted at upskilling employees in corporates in the applications of AI to industrial problems. The 18-month-long masters course, designed in consultation with TCS, will be offered by IIT M in a completely online live teaching mode through virtual classrooms. The first cohort of students for the programme will be from TCS.
“This program, designed in consultation with TCS, will have strong theoretical courses and labs covering important topics in data science and AI. Theoretical courses will cover concepts in fundamental mathematical techniques required for understanding data science algorithms, time series analysis, multivariate Data Analysis, machine learning, deep learning and reinforcement learning,” said Prof V Kamakoti, Director, IIT Madras.
The key outcomes/benefits of the MTech in Industrial AI include:
Sign up for your weekly dose of what's up in emerging technology.
- Improving the knowledge ecosystem critical for AI adoption
- Translation of AI theory to practice
- Sustainable industrial solutions
- Development of AI theory and pedagogical methods for AI training informed by an application perspective
“Industrial analytics is a combination of Data Science and Physics. It is becoming vital for manufacturers who are transforming with Digital Twins to Neural Manufacturing that will maximise efficiency, improve flexibility and predict the outcomes. This will eventually lead to adoption of autonomous manufacturing. The best of IIT M and TCS together will shape this course that will accelerate the adoption of industrial analytics at scale,”said Regu Ayyaswamy, Senior Vice President and Global Head – IoT & Digital Engineering, TCS.
