SI-UK India (Online)

The rapid rise of Artificial Intelligence has had a significant impact on all aspects of our lives. From autonomous vehicles to online shopping, AI is rapidly changing the world around us. This talk introduces the very latest in the field of AI with an emphasis on how it is likely to affect our lives. In addition, we will explore the underlying mechanism of AI and deep learning that allows computers to learn as opposed to simply following a set of rules. At the heart of this revolution is an accessible, but powerful algorithm: “Gradient Descent”. At the end of this talk, you will have an intuitive understanding of this algorithm, its importance and by extension how learning is achieved in computer systems. 


Since its foundation, the University of Bath has focused on bridging the divide between academia and the workplace. You will find that every one of our Computer Science undergraduate and specialised postgraduate courses offers you the chance to take a year-long work placement. So, you’ll get the industry experience you need to succeed during your studies. Recent Computer Science placement providers include Amazon, Siemens, and Bosch.  

Join this webinar to find out what it’s like to study Computer Science at a UK Top Ten university (Guardian 2023). Then, have any doubts overcome during the Question & Answer session at the end featuring current Indian students at Bath. 

Quick facts:  

  • Ranked 7th best university in the UK, and 5th for career prospects after 15 months, by the Guardian University Guide 2023 
  • Placed in the Top 100 of the international QS Graduate Employability Rankings 2022 
  • 86% for overall student satisfaction in the National Student Survey 2022. This means we're ranked 1st in England and 3rd in the UK when comparing institutions listed in the Guardian University Guide. 
  • Ranked 4th in the UK in The Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey 2018 

 The units I’ve studied at Bath focus a lot on teamwork to help students get into industry after their course. This is useful as employers look for teamwork experience on your CV. We were taught transferrable skills as well, like presentation skills and time management, which you’ll require throughout your professional life - Diparati, MSc Computer Science (Graduating year, 2022), UI/UX Designer at Adsum Works in the UK.

"Last year, I reached out to SI-UK, Jaipur for my Master’s journey, and it has been an incredibly fulfilling and successful experience. From guiding me through the application process to assisting with letters of recommendation and statement of purpose, and even following up with universities, SI-UK provided comprehensive support at every step of the journey. They went the extra mile, assisting with admissions, fee processing, accommodation arrangements, visa guidance, and coordination on medical checkups. I firmly believe that my admission to the University of Birmingham wouldn't have been possible without SI-UK. I highly recommend SI-UK to anyone seeking admission to a UK or Ireland university."
