The IBM Applied AI Professional Certificate provides learners with a thorough knowledge of AI, its applications, and its use cases. You will become familiar with machine learning, deep learning, and neural networks. Through a course project and real-life use cases, you’ll discover practically how AI works. And you will quickly gain the necessary skills to apply AI and build smart apps using IBM Watson services.

Additionally, this program enables you to take your first step in the exciting world of chatbots. You will create and deploy AI-powered chatbots using Watson Assistant. You’ll pick up practical skills in Python for use working in data science and AI. And you’ll work on multiple Watson AI services - Discovery, Speech to Text, Assistant, and Text to Speech - to build AI applications.

You will also discover how computer vision is shaping multiple industries. And you’ll gain skills in Python, Watson AI, and OpenCV to enable you to process images; interact with available image classification models; create, train, and test your own custom image classifiers; and design your own computer vision application and deploy it to the cloud.

This IBM Professional Certificate program comprises six purposely designed courses that take you on a carefully defined tangible learning path.

It is a self-paced program, which means it is not run to a fixed schedule with regard to completing courses or submitting assignments. As long as the program is completed before the end date, you can work at your own pace. The materials for each course will become available when you start the particular course.

You can choose to enroll for the complete certification program in one go, or sign up for individual courses one at a time. Each course that you complete will take you a step closer to acquiring the IBM Professional Certificate. And it’s worth noting that some courses may also qualify for other learning paths.

Overall, for students keen to expand their career options to include AI, the IBM Applied AI Professional Certificate is a superb opportunity to showcase your AI development skills.
