In response to the increasing demand among professionals to upskill themselves in AI & Machine Learning, Simplilearn, the world’s #1 online bootcamp for digital economy skills training, has announced a strategic collaboration with The University of Texas at Dallas’ (UT Dallas’) Erik Jonsson School of Engineering and Computer Science. This collaboration aims to upskill professionals in AI and Machine Learning, and the comprehensive training program will equip learners with the skills needed to thrive in this segment.
According to Fortune Business Insights, the AI market is expected to be worth $267 billion by 2027. The World Economic Forum also predicts that almost 75% of companies will adopt AI by the same year. This indicates a rapid growth opportunity for skilled professionals in this field.
Located in the Telecom Corridor of Dallas, the Jonsson School at UT Dallas is established in the same region as leading technology company headquarters, including AT&T, Verizon, Samsung, and Texas Instruments, where there is immense demand for a skilled digital workforce. The Dallas-Fort Worth market is also home to Fortune 500 enterprises such as ExxonMobil, American Airlines Group, and CBRE Group. The collaboration between Simplilearn and UT Dallas aims to leverage this ecosystem and provide enhanced upskilling opportunities for the digital workforce in AI and ML.
The Bootcamp will help learners gain the necessary skills in machine learning, deep learning, NLP, reinforcement learning, and more. The program would also provide learners with exposure and understanding of some of the latest AI topics, such as generative AI, prompt engineering, and ChatGPT, among the rest. This will ensure that they are adequately prepared to meet the ever-increasing demand for skilled workforce in this field and will give them a competitive edge needed to excel in the job market.
