Bachelor of Science Applied Artificial Intelligence


Bachelor of Science applied Artificial Intelligence

The democratization and industrialization of AI use cases increases the interest of companies for profiles trained in data processing, Machine Learning, Deep Learning, business issues and AI project deployment. The Bachelor of Science in Applied Artificial Intelligence of aivancity School for Technology, Business & Society Paris-Cachan meets this increasing demand by preparing for the job of Artificial Intelligence Developer.

These versatile profiles must know how to use existing tools (in machine learning or deep learning) and meet a real demand from companies (large companies but also, and increasingly, SMEs).

The skills targeted by this program are built around three blocks of "technical" skills centered on data, which will be acquired, stored and analyzed, and on the implementation of machine learning and deep learning algorithms, supported by a first block of skills, oriented towards the business world and project issues (upstream issues), and a second block oriented towards the deployment of the AI solution (downstream issues).

All of these skills enable the AI developer to play his role as a "technology broker", a "transmitter of knowledge", while understanding the company's challenges and therefore knowing how to adapt his/her knowledge of technology to the real needs of the organization.

The application file is evaluated by a mark assessing the candidate's career path according to criteria such as academic excellence, diversity of associative experiences, cultural openness, etc.

It is an MCQ structured around questions that integrate verbal and numerical logic and assess the candidate's reasoning skills in the areas of logical computational analysis and communication.

It is an MCQ with 45 questions grouped in 3 parts: Comprehension, Vocabulary and Grammar. The level required is close to the level required in the final year of high school.

The MCQ evaluates the candidate's knowledge of general culture (economic and social news, arts, international culture, etc.) and digital culture (digital technologies, computers, internet and web, etc.).

Composition of the jury: two teachers from the school or a teacher and a business professional. The interview, which lasts 30 minutes, allows the members of the Jury, who have read the file, to get to know the candidate and to understand the coherence of his/her professional project with the Bachelor of aivancity and to appreciate his/her openness and interest in the field of Artificial Intelligence.
