With a combination of nervous apprehension and fascination, artificial intelligence is profoundly disrupting today’s world. Its fields of application are extremely wide and includes such things as predictive maintenance in industry, the development of autonomous vehicles, the optimisation of production means for manufacturing, etc. It consists of implementing a number of techniques aimed at enabling machines to imitate a form of real intelligence.
Artificial intelligence is actually already almost mainstream. The question is therefore not about being for or against it but rather understanding how to put it to good use. Doing this calls on new skills and emerging professions to harness the power of machine learning, deep learning and all their associated technologies.
Specialisation and knowledge
At IMT Lille Douai, the general engineering training allows students to specialise in the field of artificial intelligence, to have a stake in this paradigm shift. It takes on its full meaning in the fields of digital education and industries and services, but also in contact with researchers from the Centre for Education, Research and Innovation in Digital Systems.
