Frequently Asked Questions(FAQs)

1). What is intake for B.Tech AI and DS?

The Intake for B.Tech AI and DS is 60 students.

2). What are the eligibility criteria for B.Tech AI and DS?

Passed Standard XII (10+2) or equivalent examination with Physics and Mathematics as compulsory subjects along with one of the Chemistry/ Biotechnology/ Biology/ Technical Vocational subject/ Computer Science/ Information Technology/ Informatics Practices/ Agriculture/ Engineering Graphics/ Business Studies from any recognized Board with a minimum of 45% marks or equivalent grade (40% marks or equivalent grade for Scheduled Caste/ Scheduled Tribes).

3). What is Data Science? Why it is so trendy these days?

Data Science is a blend of various tools, algorithms, and machine learning principles with the goal to discover hidden patterns from the raw data. Data Science is primarily used to make decisions and predictions making use of predictive causal analytics, prescriptive analytics (predictive plus decision science) and machine learning. Traditionally, the data that we had was mostly structured and small in size, which could be analyzed by using simple BI tools. Unlike data in the traditional systems which was mostly structured, today most of the data is unstructured or semi- structured.

This data is generated from different sources like financial logs, text files, multimedia forms, sensors, and instruments. Simple BI tools are not capable of processing this huge volume and variety of data. This is why we need more complex and advanced analytical tools and algorithms for processing, analyzing and drawing meaningful insights out of it.

4). Who is a Data Scientist?

In simple words, a Data Scientist is one who practices the art of Data Science. The term “Data Scientist” has been coined after considering the fact that a Data Scientist draws a lot of information from the scientific fields and applications whether it is statistics or mathematics.

5). What all you need to be a Data Scientist?

A Data Scientist requires skills basically from three major areas as shown below.

11). How B.Tech in CS and AI/DS are linked or different from each other?

Artificial Intelligence is a part of Computer Science. Also AI is a subset of Computer Science. The theories and practices of computer science are always used for developing Artificial Intelligence Systems. The key differences between Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence are:

  • 1) CS is generic and wide concept whereas AI is an implementation.
  • 2) AI is one of many fields in Computer Science.
  • 3) AI is discipline belonging to CS.

Both CS and AI have scopes in market today. But AI is the future and it would have more scope in coming days. If we talk about Data Science — It is more specific in terms of software Engineering, Statistics, and Domain Expertise with Logic. You find errors and the aggregate results can be dismay. Data Science needs you to have a solid foundation in mathematics and statistics. However, software engineering is usually the default route most people often fall victim of. But the degree definitely prepares you for the bigger picture. In a nutshell, the world needs software engineers as much as they need Data scientists and engineers. Both the job roles need to work symbiotically with each other.

12). How would you explain Data Scientist to a software engineer?

Software engineering is about developing programs or tools to automate tasks. Data science is the field of study that combines domain expertise, programming skills, and knowledge of mathematics and statistics to extract meaningful insights from data. In simple words, Data science is all about analyzing the data and making useful out of it. Software Knowledge plays vital role in this and make it useful by automation!

13). I have heard about AI. What is it exactly?

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the concept of having machines “think like learning, and understanding language. While no one is expecting parity with human intelligence today or in the near future, AI has a big application in our day to day lives. The brain behind artificial intelligence is a technology called machine learning, which is designed to make our jobs easier and more productive.
