Graduate Diploma in Machine Learning
Prosper through ‘thinking’ technology
Artificial intelligence (AI) and its component discipline machine learning now present the world’s single greatest commercial opportunity. Research indicates that by 2030 it could increase global GDP by up to 14%—a staggering US$15.7 trillion gain.
Employment prospects are equally outstanding. AI and machine learning appointments worldwide have doubled in the past three years, with demand easily outstripping supply.
The Graduate Diploma in Machine Learning, conducted through the University of Adelaide’s world-renowned Australian Institute of Machine Learning (AIML), will prepare you to thrive in this exciting future.
What will you do?
Our Graduate Diploma in Machine Learning is driven by AIML’s cutting-edge research and extensive industry links, spanning diverse international sectors – from health, medical technology, defence and security to environment and natural resources.
Selecting from either an Applied or Technical specialisation, you’ll undertake a carefully balanced mix of face-to-face intensive courses, work-integrated learning and online study. The 12-months full-time degree will equip you with:
- high-level technical skills in machine learning and AI application development, including in specialist areas, such as deep learning and visual question answering
- broad awareness of the commercial, organisational and research opportunities presented by machine learning and AI
- a deep understanding of the disciplines’ ethical and social considerations
- extensive industry connections and networks.
You’ll also receive ongoing mentoring, feedback and direction from AIML’s world-class researchers and high-performing industry professionals.
Where could it take you?
You could help companies or public service providers provide unheard levels of personalised service. You might play a part in fully automating cities’ public transport systems for unprecedented reliability. Perhaps you’ll have a role in reducing the risk of skin sun damage with personalised AI risk monitoring technology.
The degree also provides an outstanding foundation for further advanced study, offering significant credit towards our Master of Machine Learning.
For those who are based in Adelaide, we will be offering a blended delivery mode that combines face-to-face with remote learning in as many courses as possible, taking into consideration social distancing and hygiene. All lectures will continue to be delivered online for the remainder of the year, with some exceptions.
For our students who are studying offshore for the remainder of the 2020 Academic Year, the University will continue to offer high-quality access to the learning resources remotely. This includes all lectures, tutorials and other support material. Students will be advised in advance if there are course components that cannot be provided in remote mode and, wherever possible, offered alternative courses.
