Specialist Diploma in AI Solutions Development


The rise of artificial intelligence (AI) is beginning to affect every industry and every aspect of our daily lives. As companies embrace AI, they will require relevant specialists who are equipped with an understanding of the latest technologies relating to machine and deep learning.

The aim of this course is to provide participants with knowledge and skills in the following two areas:

  • The use of machine learning algorithms to solve problems;
  • The use of deep learning algorithms to solve problems

On completion of this course, graduates will be able to:

  • Implement machine and deep learning techniques and algorithms;
  • Apply machine and deep learning algorithms to build and enhance existing solutions

Target Participants
The intended target participants are fresh graduates and working professionals who possess a Polytechnic diploma in a technology-related field.

This course is eligible for SkillsFuture Study Award. For more information, please visit the website below.
