Artificial Intelligence and Data Science (AI&DS) is a new, exponentially emerging field which consists of a set of tools and techniques used to extract useful information from data. AI&DS is a fast growing discipline and is full of rigorous practical analysis. The demand for undergraduates in AI and DS has experienced an increasing demand in the Global market over the last few years. Building human-level thought processes through the creation of artificial intelligence (AI) is the state-of-the-art in Computer Science. Intelligent machines are influenced by emerging technologies, smart devices, sensors, computing power, faster data processing, huge storage and human-machine interaction capabilities. Data Science (DS) is an interdisciplinary field with the ability to extract knowledge/insights from data - be it structured, unstructured, or semi-structured data. AI with DS, is in demand with the extensive usage of smart phones, innovations in social media, online banking, etc.., and more efficient and powerful solutions to smart environments including Internet of Things and Industry 4.0. AI and DS delivers data driven solution using computational principles, methods and systems for extracting knowledge from data and modern computational systems that demonstrate capabilities of perception, reasoning, learning and action that are typical of human intelligence.
