Having a STEM background would be helpful. 


Generative AI is a subset of AI that focuses on understanding patterns and structure in data and then using that to create more data like it.

Until now, machines couldn’t exhibit behavior that was indistinguishable from human responses. Generative AI has made that possible. In a world that operates on the principle of ‘Survival of the Fittest’, embracing Generative AI could be the edge you need to boost your productivity, improve operations, be more reliable and consistent, and do so much more.

Yes, absolutely! The Introduction to Generative AI online course is a virtual, instructor-led program so you can enroll and learn from anywhere.

This course is designed to be highly hands-on for all learners. Roughly 70% of this course would be hands-on practical training while 30% would be theoretical studies.

Yes! There will be a pre- and post-assessment for every module during this Generative AI online training course.
