Programme Overview

Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) are disrupting the 'business-as-usual' processes, while continuously evolving their potential as a competitive advantage for business success. By 2024, 75% of businesses will shift from piloting to operationalising AI, driving a 5X increase in streaming data and analytics infrastructure (Gartner, 2020). With AI & ML's combined cognitive capability in improving operational efficiency across businesses and sectors, gaining proficiency in leveraging the potential of these technologies in business is no longer a choice; it is a necessity.
