Certificate in Artificial Intelligence for People Analytics

Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning is at the heart of the fourth industrial revolution which is taking the economy by storm and it will change how we work and what work means for us and our future generations ahead. Come discover what AI means for the human resource (HR) sector and how it can be applied in the space of talent analytics, and be equipped with the necessary skills and knowledge to take advantage of the next wave of industrial changes with confidence.

Spanning a total duration of 2 days, this course seeks to empower participants with a sound grounding in artificial intelligence and machine learning techniques in solving pressing human resource challenges, where learning is facilitated with up-to-date case studies and applications in areas such as strategic decisions making in terms of employee recruitment, retention, prediction of employee performance across time, management of risk due to attrition, payroll analytics, compensation and benefit analysis and better management of employee engagement in responding to queries through the adoption of text analytics.


In particular, this course is an extension of the “Certificate in Applied Talent Analytics” and covers more grounds and depth in terms of advanced artificial intelligence and machine learning modelling techniques, model evaluation and how to tackle issues facing deployment of analytical solutions at the departmental and organizational level.

This course is eligible for SkillsFuture Credit.
