As a subset of Machine Learning, which is, in turn, a subset of Artificial Intelligence, Deep Learning is one of the most promising developments in the field of AI research. Top firms across industries are increasingly moving towards deep learning because it works with a tremendous amount of data to manage complex tasks like recognising speech, image classification, and translations rather than making predictions, unlike conventional machine learning.
However, to perform these tasks, deep learning uses deep neural networks to mimic human intelligence, and hence its algorithms are layered with increasing complexity and abstraction. Because the techniques utilised are more sophisticated, the job of a deep learning professional is more technical work than that of a “traditional” machine learning one.

These factors make deep learning an extremely niche domain in a bursting AI and ML scene. Hence, deep learning skills are increasingly in demand, and if the requirement of such advanced skills are met, firms are more than willing to financially compensate for them. Additionally, since deep learning is so specific, it’s easier to find a role that exactly matches your qualifications. All of this makes deep learning an extremely lucrative career.
How can you become indispensable in Deep Learning?
In such a niche spectrum, certifications and portfolios are highly appreciated by potential employers. The PG Level Advanced Certification Programme in Deep Learning (Foundations and Applications) from IISc enables professionals to build expertise in Deep Learning, starting from essential theoretical foundations to learning how to apply them in the real world effectively.
The programme creates a practical understanding of how Machine Learning algorithms can be developed and optimised for the hardware. The interactive sessions cover the fundamentals of deep learning and its applications, including speech, text, image, and video processing.
IISc, with its expertise in multi-disciplinary sciences, is best positioned to offer this programme. Delivered in association with TalentSprint, the programme also connects you to its Deep Tech alumni network so that you can reap life-long career benefits.
How does this programme give you an edge over the rest?
There is no shortage of programmes providing knowledge on deep learning. But deep learning is not about what you know but what you can build. A practical programme that can help you build strong foundations and a portfolio to prove them, as well as numerous opportunities to work with top professionals in the field, will set you apart from the crowd.
Hands-on curriculum: After refreshing the concepts of programming and basic mathematics, this programme develops a deep understanding of theory and practical application of deep learning. There are special modules on Deep Learning Architectures, Deep Learning for Natural Language Processing, Deep Learning for Speech and Audio Processing, Deep Learning for Computer Vision, Deep Reinforcement Learning, Deep Learning for IoT/Edge Devices and Representation Learning. These sessions are accompanied by practical industry-oriented exercises and online lab assignments. This helps you to assimilate theory into practice and master the concepts with one-to-one mentoring.
Learning Format: LIVE Interactive classes with top-notch IISc faculty, Unique 5-step learning process of LIVE online interactive sessions, capstone projects, mentorship, case studies, and IISc campus immersion visits.
Portfolio building: You can showcase your capabilities and your Deep Learning journey through experiments and real-world projects through this programme. You have the opportunity to either choose from curated capstone projects such as fraud detection, expression detection, identification etc. or bring your own project.
IISc Advantage: A certification from IISc, the World’s Number 1 Research University (QS World University Ranking 2023), will be an excellent addition to your resume. You will also get to learn from an interdisciplinary team of leading IISc faculty and get mentored by researchers and practitioners bearing academic accreditation from premier institutions around the world.
TalenSprint Career Support: TalentSprint supports certified learners looking for a new career with its Career Accelerator Program. It allows you to build a strong resume and portfolio and network with experts at the forefront of Deep Learning practises. You will also get access to incubators for promising startup ideas and exclusive job alerts through TalentSprint Alumni Network.
