Bachelors in Artificial Intelligence

Program Overview

Artificial Intelligence technology mimics human thinking by learning from past experiences and recognizing patterns. AI technologies have revolutionized the way we live and work. They can now seamlessly perform complex tasks such as identifying objects, recognizing speech, translating languages, detecting faces, and analyzing sentiments. With such capabilities, AI has the power to transform industries and improve our quality of life. Artificial intelligence is not just limited to well-known personal assistants like Siri, Google Now, or IBM's Watson. In fact, it is pervasive in our lives. Recent advancements in the field of neural networks have enabled scientists to make significant strides in replicating the processes of actual neurons. This progress has coincided with an exponential increase in data, which experts now consider as valuable as oil. The development of deep learning has empowered machines to process information at a sophisticated level, allowing them to perform complex functions such as facial recognition and next-generation genome sequencing.
