upGrad INSOFE becomes South & SE Asia’s largest Data Science faculty

Mumbai : upGrad INSOFE, a top data science institute in India and a 100% subsidiary of higher EdTech leader – upGrad, becomes the largest Southeast Asian EdTech player with the highest number of dedicated faculty in Data Science and AI Departments.

With 80+ faculty including 40+ dedicated Machine learning scientists, these leaders have strong proficiency in the interdisciplinary field of Data Science, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning.

“Such a large group of in-house dedicated faculty boasting decades of global industry and R&D experience with PhDs from top global universities is essential to providing education and training in these cutting-edge technologies. We top it up with a small pool of highly accomplished industry experts as adjunct faculty. Together with the formidable in-house expertise, this allows us to harness the power of industry, academia, R&D, entrepreneurship and product know-how into our curricula, pedagogy, and dedicated support to learners,” said Dr. Venkatesh Sunkad, President – upGrad INSOFE.

The faculty at upGrad INSOFE are adept at predictive analysis, Computer Science, statistical inference, Machine Learning, AI, and other niche technologies, to help learners strengthen their foundation across these disciplines and become AI leaders.
