Coined in the year 1956 by John McCarthy’s, the term “Artificial intelligence” (AI) has become exceedingly significant today due to increased data volumes, advanced algorithms, and improvements in computing power and storage. AI is a wide-ranging branch of computer science concerned with building smart machines capable of performing tasks that typically require human intelligence. It enables effective integration of information, analyze data, and use the resulting insights to improve decision-making. Machine Learning, a subset of AI, is defined as “the field of study that gives computers the capability to learn without being explicitly programmed” by Arthur Samuel in the year 1959.
"It is difficult to think of a major industry that AI will not transform. This includes healthcare, education, transportation, retail, communications, and agriculture. There are surprisingly clear paths for AI to make a big difference in all of these industries."- Andrew Ng, Computer Scientist and Global Leader in AI.
Tractica, a market intelligence firm in USA predicts the global AI software market will be worth $126 billion by 2025. A 2019 Gartner survey indicates 37% of business enterprises already implemented AI in their workplaces. As per machine learning market research report by Market Research Future, the global machine learning market is projected to grow from $7.3B in 2020 to $30.6B in 2024.
Artificial intelligence will transform the global economy and opportunities in AI are in high demand. As AI careers are future-proof, Dwarkadas J. Sanghvi College of Engineering is introducing four-year B. Tech. degree in “Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning” from the academic year 2021-2022 with intake of 60 students. Owing to the vision of becoming world class institution for imparting education in engineering, institute ensures state of the art curriculum, experienced and competent faculty, modern amenities, cutting edge infrastructure and active industry – academia association.
AI based technologies are used in a variety of scientific research fields such as climate prediction, healthcare, agriculture, robotics, material science, satellite communication etc. Governments worldwide encourage research and startups in artificial intelligence by announcing grants to implement projects aimed at producing new and better solutions. Students may also pursue higher studies from Indian or foreign universities in following domains.
