Most leaders expect that AI will be reshaping the global workforce landscape. With this in mind, Lipscomb University, the Nashville-based institution, has unveiled its latest graduate program offering: a Master of Science in Applied Artificial Intelligence.

Their bet is to keep their students ahead of the expected demand for AI expertise. According to the school, the program is set to launch through the Raymond B. Jones College of Engineering. This marks a significant move toward AI-focused education in the Nashville area.

In-Person and Virtual Conference

April 23rd to 25th, 2024

Join us for a deep dive into the latest data science and AI trends, tools, and techniques, from LLMs to data analytics and from machine learning to responsible AI.

 

Students who sign up can expect an 18-month course duration that offers a blend of in-person, online, and hybrid learning formats. This of course is a clear signal that the school is hoping to cater to a diverse range of student needs and lifestyles.

With Dr. Steve Nordstrom, associate dean of Lipscomb’s School of Computing, at the helm, the curriculum will cover a comprehensive spectrum of AI topics. “Our offering includes a core set of courses that delve into the fundamentals of AI, computing languages, ethics, and the societal impacts of AI.”

 

The heart graduate course is focused on problem-solving methods and the productive application of AI in the workforce. The main point is to get ahead of how AI is continually transforming industries and job functions.

So the initiative seeks to demystify AI and mitigate associated apprehensions. “AI can be intimidating, as with most emerging technologies,” Nordstrom acknowledges. “Our goal is to alleviate some of these fears and provide a comprehensive understanding of what AI entails.”

For those who are interested, the program is expected to start in August, subject to accreditation approval. Nordstrom emphasizes the ubiquity of AI’s influence, stating, “Moving forward, our interactions with both government and private sectors, as well as our professional and daily life decisions, will be increasingly shaped by our understanding and perspective on AI.

In-Person Data Engineering Conference

April 23rd to 24th, 2024 – Boston, MA

At our second annual Data Engineering Summit, Ai+ and ODSC are partnering to bring together the leading experts in data engineering and thousands of practitioners to explore different strategies for making data actionable.

 

As many know, Lipscomb University isn’t the only institution of higher learning trying to adapt to an AI world. The University of Pennsylvania and others have either launched their AI-focused degrees or are looking to include AI in some way in their programs.
