COE prepares students to grow up into reflective, knowledgeable, critical thinkers. Students are exposed to cutting-edge technologies like artificial intelligence, augmented reality, machine learning, and mobile app development. Consequently, students emerge empowered with 21st-century skills and ready for the most in-demand jobs of the next decade.
Expertise in programming languages coupled with a solid foundation in mathematics is crucial for learning AI. Excellent cognitive skills, judgment and decision making, problem-solving, analytical thinking, and good communication skills are some of the important skills that are to be developed by a student interested to pursue AI. Applied mathematics, psychology, and technology design are areas of interest for an aspirant in the AI domain.
At COE, students analyze the working of an AI game. Further, they create chatbots. Additionally, code to perform Natural Language Processing, which is a branch of AI. A concept-driven curriculum coupled with inquiry-based learning at COE helps the students, acquire the skills necessary for a curious learner in the AI domain.

 

AI and National Educational Policy -2020

The use of technology in teaching and learning is a key principle of NEP. NEP emphasizes on digital literacy, coding, and computational thinking for students. It also plans to use AI-powered software to help track the progress of the students and to help students make optimal career choices.

What is AI and What can you do with it?

What Is Artificial Intelligence (AI)?

Artificial intelligence (AI) refers to the simulation of human intelligence in machines that are programmed to think like humans and imitate their actions. It can also be applied to any machine that exhibits traits related to a person’s mind like learning and problem-solving. AI refers to ” man-made thinking power.”

 

Why Artificial Intelligence?

With the assistance of AI,

  • You can create software or devices which may solve real-world problems easily and accurately. AI can simplify problems in various domains like healthcare, finance, gaming, and others.
  • You can create personal virtual Assistants, such as Siri, Google Assistant, etc.
  • You can build Robots which may be of great help in performing repetitive and dangerous tasks which humans prefer not to do because of extreme environments such as outer space or the bottom of the sea.

Impact of Artificial Intelligence?

The beginning of research on AI dates back to 1956. It has come a long way, since then. Currently, AI is benefiting humans tremendously. Let us explore how AI has impacted various sectors like healthcare, gaming, automotive, finance, education, and others.

Applications of Artificial Intelligence

Healthcare

In the last, 5 to 10 years, AI has created a massive impact on the healthcare industry. The Healthcare domain is applying AI to perform a better and faster diagnosis. AI has helped doctors diagnose patients’ conditions and provide them with medical help even before hospitalization. 

AI helps develop applications that take the gathered patient data as input and can clinically innovate to improve patient outcomes to an even greater extent. AI improves reliability, predictability, and consistency with quality and patient safety.

 

Gaming

For the past few years, AI has become an indispensable part of the gaming industry. The future of the gaming industry is undoubtedly about creating artificial environments by including Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, and Mixed Reality. The rise of Artificial Intelligence is an important stepping stone in developing games that are smarter and more interactive, and as close to reality as possible.

AI mainly delivers a realistic gaming experience for players to compete against each other on a virtual platform.

Additionally, it helps to raise the player’s interest and satisfaction levels.

These are the 5 ways in which AI transforms the gaming industry:

  • Making Games Smarter Than Ever
  • Making Games More Real
  • Enhancing the Overall Gaming Experience
  • Transforming Skills of Developer
  • Making Mobile Games Smarter with AI 

Example: DeepMind’s AI-based AlphaGo software, which is famous for defeating Lee Sedol, the world champion in the game of GO, is one of the most significant accomplishments in the field of AI.

 

Finance

Artificial intelligence has revolutionized the world of finance. An AI system can examine billions of data points, determine patterns and trends, and also predict future patterns. Artificial Intelligence coupled with natural language processing can even be used to create conversational trees that let customers converse and perform specific actions, either by chat or voice application. Here are a few ways in which AI is used in financial applications.

  • Automate processes with AI
  • AI-Based Reporting and Analysis
  • Predictive Analytics for financial advice to customers
  • Automation using Chatbots
Education

In many educational institutions, AI has been applied to create tools that help develop skills and testing systems. AI can improve efficiency, provide personalized results, and simplify admin tasks.

Students of today, need to work in the future where AI is the reality.

So, educational institutions must expose students to future technology.

 

Autonomous Vehicles – Automotive Industry

Self-driving cars are a buzzword in the AI industry. The development of autonomous vehicles will definitely revolutionize the transport system. The AI system collects data from the vehicle’s radar, cameras, GPS, and cloud services to produce control signals that operate the vehicle.

Waymo, the Google self-driving-project unit, has begun its driverless ride-hailing service to the public, in Phoenix.

AI implements computer vision and image detection to detect objects around and to recognize them. Advanced Deep Learning algorithms can accurately predict what objects in the vehicle’s vicinity are likely to do, respond to it, and alert the driver to take control of the vehicle in cases of emergency. This makes Waymo cars more effective and safer.

Another famous example of an autonomous vehicle is Elon Musk owned Tesla’s self-driving car.

 
Data Security

The security of data is crucial for every company as cyber-attacks are growing very rapidly in the digital world. AI can be used to make data more safe and secure.

 

Social Media

Social Media sites like Facebook, Twitter, and Snapchat contain billions of user profiles, which are required to be stored and managed efficiently. AI can organize and manage massive amounts of data.

 

Robotics

Artificial Intelligence has a remarkable role in Robotics. Generally, robots are programmed in such a way that they perform some repetitive tasks. With the assistance of AI, one will be able to create intelligent robots that perform tasks with their own experiences and without being pre-programmed.

Humanoid robots are a type of robots that replicate human behavior 

 A humanoid robot named Sophia talks, demonstrates facial expressions, answers questions, and behaves very similarly to humans.

 

Entertainment

Some entertainment services like Netflix and Amazon, use AI-based applications. With the support of AI algorithms, these services display personalized recommendations for movies or shows.

 

Agriculture

 Thousands of data points, produced by farms on the ground daily, serve as input to the AI algorithms.

With AI, various parameters for farming, such as weather conditions, temperature, water usage, or soil conditions can be analyzed, using the data collected from the farm. This in turn helps the farmers to make well-informed decisions.

 

E-commerce

AI is providing a competitive edge to the e-commerce industry. It helps shoppers get products with recommended size, color, and brand and provides them a personalized shopping experience.
