Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning are creating immense opportunities for innovation in products and services across every industry, from health care to energy to manufacturing—and beyond

Remarkable growth in the availability of raw data, combined with major advances in computational power and new modeling techniques and tools, have driven a boom in the AI/ML field. To remain competitive, organizations are racing to leverage the value of their data through the application of advanced analytics.

“The level of depth, faculty interaction and high-quality virtual approach set Duke's apart from other AI certificates.”

Jon Reifschneider
Certificate Program Director

To meet this challenge, Duke University’s Pratt School of Engineering is launching in summer 2020 an online Graduate Certificate in AI Foundations for Product Innovation (AIPI) that will fuel innovation by equipping participants with AI/machine learning skills and a strong understanding of how the technologies can be applied to build new products and services.

Designed for working professionals, the online program can be completed in 15 months and requires no entrance exam.

Although engineers and scientists skilled in machine learning principles are in high demand, business leaders find there is currently insufficient talent with these critical aptitudes. Through the AIPI certificate, Duke aims to address the imbalance between demand for professionals with strong AI skills and the available supply. 

Duke’s AIPI certificate is designed to build graduates’ artificial intelligence expertise and value within their organization and industry. Certificate students will complete a preparatory online bootcamp and a series of four core courses designed with input from industry experts and structured around the product development process.
