CET808 Application 3: Introduction to Cloud AI

Course Provider

School of Computer Science and Engineering (SCSE)



Academic Unit



The success of AI comes from the high-performance accelerators and big data. As cloud platforms can provide almost endless computing resources and store massive amounts of data, it is very natural to leverage them to support AI applications. Therefore, in recent years, both industry and academia have invested a lot of effort to build AI infrastructure in clouds to ease the development and deployment of AI applications.

In this course, learners will learn the cutting-edge knowledge about cloud computing and AI as well as master the recent techniques that streamline the AI applications development in clouds. After hands-on exercises, learners will build, test and deploy their own Cloud AI applications to provide intelligent services for end-users.

This course is part of:

- Graduate Certificate in Data Science and Artificial Intelligence
- Graduate Certificate in 
Artificial Intelligence and AI Plus
- FlexiMasters in Data Science and Artificial Intelligence
- FlexiMasters in 
Artificial Intelligence and AI Plus
