Around 142 students are currently taking the new cohort of the Diploma program in Data Science, Machine Learning and its Applications, delivered by the Faculty of Mathematics, Astronomy, Physics and Computing Sciences of the National University of Córdoba (FaMAF- UNC)
This proposal, put forward on the Node of Artificial Intelligence framework, is an academic training course developed jointly by the Academic Institution and the Industry which aims at professionalize specialized profiles in Data Science.
In this fourth edition the focus was to promote the attendance of women at the Diploma program, thus, 20 scholarships were fully granted for this purpose. Every year a number of professionals are graduated making up a great community of specialists in this field today. The next graduation ceremony will be held in December and new undergraduates will join over 300 others who completed the diploma program in previous years.
It should be noted that those who have graduated have the knowledge as well as the specific tools about machine learning and the skills-set to enable management, assessment, communication of data treatment results interpretation and the scope and implications of the results obtained.
The Scientific and Industrial Collaborative Node for research and development of Artificial Intelligence is an initiative to build knowledge in Data Science and to develop innovative solutions based on Artificial Intelligence. This working space for the technological innovation and link between the ICT industry and the academic and productive sector aims to join forces in order to add dynamism to the development of the software industry in Cordoba.
The Node is managed together with the Cordoba Technology Cluster, the Faculty of Mathematics, Physics, Astronomy and Computing (FAMAF), the High Performance Computing Center (CCAD), both institutions belonging to the National University of Cordoba and the Ministry of Science and Technology of Cordoba.02. How was NODO created?
The Scientific and Industrial Collaborative Node for research and development of Artificial Intelligence was introduced in December 2017. In May 2018 the Cordoba Technology Cluster and the Faculty of Mathematics, Physics, Astronomy and Computing (FAMAF) from the National University of Cordoba entered into an agreement to establish its creation. In 2021, the Ministry of Science and Technology of Cordoba joined this initiative.
The NODO formalized the delivery of the Program “Diploma in Data Science- Machine Learning and its applications between the Industry and the Academic Institution”. It also provides joint work between both institutions to develop Artificial Intelligence projects by starting a supercomputer, and makes the links between the scientific and the productive sector more dynamic by technological linking to work collaboratively on demands and needs from the software industry.01.
