Why Artificial Intelligence ?

Artificial intelligence (AI) is the simulation of human intelligence processes by machines, especially computer systems. These processes include learning (the acquisition of information and rules for using the information), reasoning (using rules to reach approximate or definite conclusions) and self-correction. Neuromorphic computing mimicking the human brain is one such wave towards AI capabilities. This course will help participant to gain knowledge about the design of artificially intelligent systems from bottom to top level. Hardware implementation of such systems with emerging devices will also be dealt.

Objective of the Course

  • Overview of key concepts and technologies required for Artificial Intelligent systems.
  • To present the usage of emerging devices for AI systems.
  • Discuss the circuits required for neuromorphic computing.
  • Understand various applications of AI systems.
  • Benefits and Outcomes of the Course

  • Participants will understand state-of- the-art AI systems, neural network and hardware implementation of neuromorphic systems.
  • Participants will learn in-memory computation and usage of emerging devices for computation.

  • Course Program

  • The program is split into lectures and labs/hands-on sessions.
  • Hands-on experience on basic and advanced-level topics.
  • Interaction & learning with experts from academia & industry.
  • Certificates to participants by E&ICT Academy IIT Roorkee.
