    • What can I expect from this Simplilearn and IBM co-developed Dual Master’s Program in Data Science and Artificial Intelligence?

      As a part of this online training, co-developed with IBM, you will receive the following:

      • Two Simplilearn Master's certificates
      • An industry - recognized certificates and access to digital badges from IBM upon successful completion of the program
      • $1,200 worth of IBM Cloud credits that you can leverage for hands - on exposure
      • Access to IBM Cloud platforms featuring IBM Watson and other software for 24 / 7 practice
      • Lifetime access to e - learning content for all of the courses included in the learning path( * only for Simplilearn courses)

    • What Is Data Science?

      Data Science is a concept used to tackle Big Data and includes data cleansing, preparation, and analysis. A Data Scientist gathers data from multiple sources and applies machine learning, predictive analytics, and sentiment analysis to extract critical information from the collected data sets. They understand data from a business point of view and are able to provide accurate predictions and insights that can be used to power critical business decisions.

    • What is Artificial Intelligence (AI)?

      Artificial Intelligence (AI) is an area of computer science that features the creation of intelligent machines that work and react like humans. Some of the activities computers with Artificial Intelligence are designed for speech recognition, computer vision etc.

    • What Is Machine Learning (ML)?

      Machine Learning can be defined as the practice of using algorithms to use data, learn from it and then forecast future trends for that topic. A good example of Machine Learning implementation is Facebook. Facebook’s Machine Learning algorithms gather behavioral information for every user on the social platform. Based on one’s past behavior, the algorithm predicts interests and recommends articles and notifications on Facebook News Feed. Similarly, the same concept applies when Amazon recommends “You might also like” products, or when Netflix recommends movies based on past behaviors.

    • What is the difference between Data Science and Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence?

      While the terms Data Science, Machine Learning, and Artificial Intelligence are all closely interconnected, each has a distinct purpose and specific applications.

      Artificial Intelligence means making machines intelligent to take decisions on their own according to the situation without the need for any human intervention, whereas Machine Learning is the approach to make those machines intelligent. Machine Learning algorithms enable machines to learn on their own without being explicitly programmed. Data science is an interdisciplinary field to extract knowledge or insights from data, Machine Learning and statistics are part of Data Science.

    • Why would I choose to pursue a Dual Master’s with Simplilearn?

      Data Scientist is one of the hottest professions of the century with the demand to shoot up by 28% by 2020 (source: IBM , May 2017). Apart from a Data Scientist, there are other growing roles like AI Engineer and Machine Learning Engineer in the industry that are closely related or advanced in the same career path. This Dual Master’s program learning path is designed in a way that it will help learners to land one of these prominent roles.

    • How do I earn the Dual Master’s Program certificate?

      Upon completion of the following minimum requirements, you will be eligible to receive the Dual Master’s Program certificate that will testify to your skills as an expert in Data Science and Artificial Intelligence.
