Two-week Executive Training Program on AIML

IIIT Hyderabad conducted two-week executive training program to assist the R&D efforts of public sector undertakings in India. The program aimed at extending a brief theoretical overview of contemporary problem-solving paradigm involving AIML techniques and enabling practice in terms of (i) use of AIML tools/libraries (ii) use of public resources (datasets, trained models), and (iii) systematic training of ML models and their evaluation.

The brief program explored and mapped vital gaps in formulating, implementing or evaluating problem-statements pertaining to AIML research/production environments, help the research engineers/scientists familiarise with differing state of the art results that could be of practical help in formulating and solving original problems in their specific domain of work, with added focus on computer vision and natural language processing. In the long run the program envisages capacity building efforts within each such public sector undertaking to execute such training activities on their own.

The two-week course was scheduled during first two weeks of October 2023 at IIIT Hyderabad. Accommodation to participants was not part of the program.

PS: The training sessions had technical classes covering extensive practical insights, and dedicated hands-on tutorial sessions too.
