Introduction

AI is one of the key skills today. The Saksham AI mentoring program offers an opportunity to learn AI using your coding knowledge. Set up by education experts in the UK, the program has the following highlights

  • We start three month from  Saturday 06 Feb 2021.
  • The objective is to teach AI (machine learning and deep learning) using coding in Python
  • We expect the participants to know some coding but not necessarily Python
  • You will need a laptop and a browser 
  • Team and acknowledgements: Ajit Jaokar + TBC

 

Module schedules

  • Feb 1 Introduction to core Python (details below)
  • March 1 Python libraries (numpy, Pandas, Matplotlib, SKlearn)
  • April 1: End to End classification and regression problems
  • Submissions as ipnyb notebook format

Ajit Jaokar

Based in London, Ajit's work spans research, entrepreneurship and academia relating to artificial intelligence (AI) and the internet of things (IoT).

He is the course director of the course: Artificial Intelligence: Cloud and Edge Implementations. Besides this, he also conducts the University of Oxford courses: AI for Cybersecurity and Computer Vision.

Ajit works as a Data Scientist through his company feynlabs - focusing on building innovative early stage AI prototypes for domains such as cybersecurity, robotics and healthcare.

Besides the University of Oxford, Ajit has also conducted AI courses in the London School of Economics (LSE), Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM) and as part of the The Future Society at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government.

He is also currently working on a book to teach AI using mathematical foundations at high school level.

Ajit was listed in the top 30 influencers for IoT for 2017 along with Amazon, Bosch, Cisco, Forrester and Gartner by the German insurance company Munich Re.

Ajit publishes extensively on KDnuggets and Data Science Central.

He was recently included in top 16 influencers (Data Science Central), Top 100 blogs (KDnuggets), Top 50 (IoT central), and 19th among the top 50 twitter IoT influencers (IoT Institute).

His PhD research is based on AI and Affective Computing (how AI interprets emotion).

Dr Amita Kapoor
