TalentSprint and RBCDSAI at IIT Madras to create a brand new breed of DeepTech professionals

TalentSprint, an NSE Group firm, and India’s main edtech firm, introduced a multi-year partnership with Robert Bosch Centre for Data Science and AI (RBCDSAI) at IIT Madras to launch a number of deep-tech government teaching programs.

RBCDSAI is a world-renowned interdisciplinary analysis centre with wide-ranging experience in community analytics, deep studying, reinforcement studying, and pure language processing. The 12-month PG Level Advanced Program in Applied Data Science and Machine Intelligence, the primary program from the companions, is designed for early profession professionals eager to construct careers in information science and AI.

With each trade within the midst of digital disruption and related gadgets producing huge quantities of knowledge, utilized information science together with machine intelligence will play a essential function in making top quality enterprise selections and implementing scalable options. According to the World Economic Forum, Data Science, Data Architecture, Data Analysis, and Data Engineering are on observe to grow to be most favored profession paths by 2022, and the US Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts 11.5 million profession openings in these fields by 2026. Alongside the US, India is anticipated to be a distinguished world hub for information science. Recent information suggests a whole lot of 1000’s of job openings in information science, of which 70 p.c can be found to professionals with lower than 5 years of expertise.

Elaborating about this partnership, Dr. B. Ravindran, Head of RBCDSAI and Professor of Computer Science at IIT Madras and a Mindtree Faculty Fellow, mentioned: “Mastering data science requires a strategic approach. Young professionals need to focus equally on building strong fundamentals and applying the learnings to solve real world problems across multiple industry domains.”

Further, Dr. B. Ravindran mentioned, “IIT Madras, India’s No. 1 NIRF ranked institution, has always been a top choice for serious learners from all over the world. It is home to RBCDSAI, an interdisciplinary centre comprising faculty across 8+ IIT Madras departments and 80+ researchers leveraging data science to extract actionable insights in the fields of technology, finance, smart cities, finance and healthcare.
