Artificial Intelligence is the simulation of human intelligence by machines. Machines that exhibit human traits like learning and problem solving. In today’s world, businesses looking to gain an edge over their competition, use different forms of Artificial Intelligence to learn about their customers in an effort to improve their understanding of a customer’s needs and wants. We are offering an AI course in which the professional Diploma in Artificial Intelligence takes a deep dive into the area of Machine Learning, Data Mining and Statistics. Using tools including Jupyter Notebooks and Python, it goes through all stages, from model training to deploying models into a production, that a business requires to start harnessing the power of AI into their organisation. This programme will enable learners to demonstrate how Artificial Intelligence can be introduced into their respective organisations in the form of Machine Learning. It will take them through the process of extracting data, using it to train models and using these models as part of the infrastructure of the organisation in order to take advantage of the benefits that Artificial Intelligence has to offer. This diploma has been designed for learners with non-cognate backgrounds and no technical knowledge or those with cognate background but lacking technical skills and knowledge.
September 2020 Online Option
For September 2020 intake only, students have the option of taking the entire diploma programme online. We will be teaching on a hybrid basis but on-campus time will be limited due to social distancing requirements that need to be adhered to.
Artificial Intelligence Programme Aims and Objectives
This programme aims to introduce learners to the field of Artificial Intelligence with a focus on the area of Machine Learning. Beginning with an introduction to Python, the course takes learners through all the stages of the process, from gathering and processing data to using it to create Machine Learning models. It will demonstrate the benefits of using Machine Learning within an organisation.
Introduce learners to the field of Artificial Intelligence.
Provide learners with the ability to develop Machine Learning models.
Enable learners to extract data and use it for model training purposes.
Equip learners with Python programming fundamentals and introduce them to commonly used packages.

The assessment of the AI course will consist of a project. This assignment will assess learners’ knowledge of artificial intelligence through the application of and demonstration of competencies in machine learning. By completing this assessment learners will also develop soft skills such as time management, communication and report writing as well as technical skills in python and associated packages.
