Recent technological advancements in Computer Science associated with the large scale of digitization is challenging the way people live. These changes create conveniences and ways of problem-solving that were never possible before. Artificial intelligence is one such are that has revolutionized the world and has stormed in to all walks of human life. It is everywhere is is influencing the day-to-day life. Artificial intelligence can now mimic human speech, translate languages, diagnose cancers, draft legal documents and play games with capabilities to beat human competitors. Today systems can accomplish tasks that were in the exclusive domain of human capabilities. The capabilities of non-human systems will continue to expand. Increasingly capable systems, computer systems being put into use everywhere, and increasingly quantified society have been the driving forces in this information technology innovations.
Huge amounts of data generated every couple of hours is that this data can be caught, captured and sorted, those who own it and control it have an insight into human lived experience beyond anything that anyone in the past could ever have dreamed of like
- What people think
- What people care about
- How people feel
- Where do they go
- What they buy
- Who they speak to
- What they say
- How do people use data provided to them etc.
People leave a trail of these things which offers a window into the soul both individually and collectively that dwarfs anything that the philosophers or the kings or the priests of the past could have dreamed of.
These three trends are accelerating, and it seems highly unlikely that humans are going to be unchanged in the way people live together as a result of them. For the first in the history of human civilization, people are required to live alongside such powerful non-human systems. It was unimaginable that a day would dawn where people would be surrounded by technology that’s never switched off.
In order to address these developments, train and prepare students for handling these disruptive technologies in an efficient manner and apply for good cause of the society, ACE has introduced a four year course in AI & ML commencing from the academic year 2020. Within a year of its introduction, the intake has been increased to 180.
The department has enviable infrastructural facilities to train the students.
