Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, IoT, & Data Science

The future of technology will be driven by the intersection of Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, the Internet of Things, and Data Science.

Artificial intelligence is the theory and development of computer systems’ ability to perform tasks that normally require human intelligence, such as visual perception, speech recognition, decision-making, and translation between languages. Machine learning is the capability in which a machine can learn by its own without being explicitly programmed. It is an application of AI that provides the system the ability to automatically learn and improve from experience. The IoT is a link made between connected devices. It allows devices to work outside of the need for human input. Data science be defined as obtaining insights and information out of data. A growing number of companies and industries are requiring talent with skillsets in these areas.

The Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, IoT, & Data Science Community is designed to keep students informed about relevant industry news and connect them with related opportunities.
