AI Researchers Should Have Their Own Cern
, Reetta Räty
Artificial Intelligence brings rapid changes to all sectors of society opening opportunities and needs for new solutions. To succeed in the competition organizations and individuals need new technological skills as well as a clear understanding of the big picture of AI. What is AI, what are the current AI technologies and how can they be developed and deployed?
Diploma in Artificial Intelligence gives you in-depth understanding of the topic and helps you to understand and apply contemporary AI technologies.
The program utilizes the experts in the field and it is a joint effort of Aalto PRO, University of Helsinki HY+ and Finnish Center for Artificial Intelligence FCAI.
"Artificial Intelligence is not a futuristic dream. It shapes our world at an unprecedented pace. This program is a deep dive into the latest trends of AI.”
Associate Professor, University of Helsinki
The program builds competencies for the future. After the program you know how to create new business solutions based on AI, and Streamline and automate your processes with AI solutions.
The program is targeted at business and technology developers who need both practical skills and in-depth understanding in order to utilize artificial intelligence technologies.
The program is suitable for
IT Managers and Directors
Diploma in Artificial Intelligence consists of six two-day study modules utilizing intensive in-class sessions and learning by doing. Covered topics include fundamentals of data and AI as well as contemporary AI technologies and applications. You will also hear practical case examples from companies like OP, Yle, Stora Enso and Fourkind.
The study modules are complemented by individual exercises and project work, which enables you to apply the acquired skills into your daily work right away. In the last part of the program participants can select between a technical study track requiring programming skills or a business study track focusing on business applications.
