Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning at Gwynedd Mercy University, Gwynedd Valley, PA

This blog contains direct quotes from websites as of today’s date. Programs and policies do change, at colleges, from time to time, so please check with the colleges directly to receive any updates. These are not, necessarily, the biggest, best, or most popular programs at the college, but they are the ones that just “caught my eye” as unique, special, interesting, or just plain awesome. They are randomly listed in the blog section of this website. Enjoy!

From the Gwynedd Mercy University website (2023): “Artificial intelligence is no longer a story line from some futuristic science fiction movie. AI technology is already here, it is a part of our everyday lives and is impacting every industry.

“This is why GMercyU's Computer Information Science program has launched a new concentration in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. We realize how important it is to stay on top of the current technologies and industry trends. Artificial intelligence can be described as the ability of a machine to learn similarly to the way a human does, through data and experiences. However, a computer is capable of processing data at a much faster rate than a human can.

“GMercyU's Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning Professional Option

Students enrolled in GMercyU's Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning concentration will be introduced to the theories, algorithms, and processes behind these technologies. Students are also provided with opportunities to design, program, and build their own applications. At GMercyU, you will learn how a computer system can see, recognize, and decide to take some action. You will be provided with hands-on experiences developing systems so you, too, can create robotic applications using some of the same technologies found in autonomous vehicles or unmanned drones.

“Because machines learn from data, students will be instructed on how to properly gather, inspect, and cleanse data before using it to train their models. Students will coordinate the collection of data and determine if they do not have enough for the specific project they are working on. Data mining and analytics are also covered.

As students move through the program, they will be encouraged to explore, “question, and discuss the ethical issues introduced by artificial intelligence and machine learning. In other words, just because we can doesn't mean we always should. GMercyU AI students will explore how to ensure that these intelligent machines will serve humanity well and not cause harm.

“After completing GMercyU's AI/ML program, students will be well prepared for graduate school or to begin their careers as Artificial Intelligence Engineers (sometimes referred to as a Machine Learning Engineers) who make an average of $164,769 and as high as $304,500.

“Other job opportunities for graduates of the program include, but are not limited to, machine learning researchers, business intelligence, data analysts, and computer vision engineers. AI-related job growth is expected to increase from 5% to 18% per year, according to Computer Science Degree Hub.”
