Robots taking over humans is not a new phenomenon any longer. But, was it able to keep up the hype which was expected is a question OR did we overly expect of it?
There is no doubt that Artificial Intelligence and Robotics domain has reached immence developments during last few decades and would continue to play a key role in the global development in the future as well. However, there are still some concern are raised such over the best utilization of AI knowledge; whether the AI research and development has looked into actual demands of the society or was it too academic? Was the general society mis-conceptualized that artificial intelligence means only robots that resembles human and hence no excitement brought by simple AI applications? Is there a failure of popularization front in bringing the achievements of AI into the general public? And most importantly is there sufficient knowledge transfer and education opportunities for youth who should grab the baton for tomorrow?
Sri Lankan context is much worse on every above aspect. Therefore, it would be essential to introduce whole new series of education opportunities for Sri Lankan youth to jump into and swim through the AI and robotics sea of knowledge. Advanced Certificate in AI and Robotics is the foundation that would lay the base of that continuous process and expected to build a core group of intelligent youth who would be driven for real success in AI and robotics.
This program will provide fundamental but broad understanding of building intelligent systems and will cover artificial intelligence principles, robot operating systems, software programs, techniques and tools of AI and robotics, etc.
