About Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning(NEWLY LAUNCHED FOR THE ACADEMIC YEAR 2020-21)

B.E. in Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning at SJEC is a four-year degree programme, with a current intake of 60, affiliated to VTU-Belagavi. The programme is currently handled by the Department of Computer Science and Engineering.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) are being looked as the drivers for the next industrial revolution happening in the world today. Artificial Intelligence has been utilized in various fields like Medicine, Language processing, Finance, Education, Transportation, Business, Law and more.

Artificial Intelligence is the branch of Computer Science that emphasizes the development of intelligent machines which think and work like humans. With the advancement in technology, we are already connected to AI in one way or the other – whether it is Siri, Watson or Alexa. More and more companies are investing resources in Machine Learning (ML), indicating a robust growth in AI products and apps in the near future.

AI and ML are integral parts of data science, where techniques from both such as regression, predictive analytics and more are applied for insight generation. Job Opportunities for AI & ML engineers such as - Business Intelligence Developer, Research Scientist, Full stack developer, Software architect, Data analyst, Data warehouse engineer and Product manager are highly demanding. Demand for AI and ML engineers is projected to be 1,25,00 in the next five years.

The four-year engineering course in AI and ML at SJEC offers subjects like Introduction to Sensors, ML with Python, Big Data Analytics, Natural Language Processing (NLP), Applied Statistics, Expert System, Fuzzy Logic, Virtual Reality, Robotics Process Automation (RPA), Internet of Things (IoT), Speech Processing, Computation Intelligence, Pervasive Computing, Knowledge and Data Engineering, ML and AI for Healthcare & Agriculture, Deep Learning, Game Theory, etc.

Dr Shreenath Acharya

Professor & HOD

I am an academician with over 25 years of teaching experience having a blend of knowledge in computers, electrical and electronics fields. Actively involved in the activities of transforming engineering education through technology.

The prime motivation for me to pursue an academic career is to get an opportunity to teach, advise and motivate the students. With several years of experience as a teacher, mentor and guide I have gained a deep insight into the circumstances and the environment in which students effectively contribute and also how the teacher can be a facilitator to aid in their efficient learning.

My short-term goal is to effectively practice teaching learning in the educational environment. My long-term aspiration is to become an excellent educator and facilitator in a well reputed, quality research-oriented institution/university by fostering the learners to be critical thinkers. In the current context, research activities play an important role in the development of an educator since it has a direct impact on quality of teaching learning and also towards betterment of the society. My research interests include diverse fields like cloud computing, data science/big data analytics, AI & ML based predictions and network security related aspects. I believe that the ultimate goal of a research is to discover new ideas that would help solve issues in the society. I would like to nurture and guide students towards their research work so that together we could venture and collaborate for quality work thereby enhancing our knowledge and skills.
