Computational Systems

Now that almost every object is embedded with computers and sensors that are interconnected through the cloud, we will be increasingly surrounded by unmanned, intelligent and assistive systems – powered by machine learning, predictive inferencing and data mining algorithms. Welcome to the era of intelligent computing.

Capitol Technology is perfectly poised to train the next generation of digerati, who’ll develop secure, immersive, conversational and autonomous technologies.

Computational Systems Overview

$140B Unmanned aircraft systems industry expected to grow from $10B in 2014 to $140 in 2024
40% Projected number of people in 2020 who’ll be interacting with conversational systems based on AI and intelligent agents
77% Companies that are projected to use block chain technologies in production systems by 2020

Career Outlook

According to Bureau of Labor Statistics, the median annual wage for software developers was $103,560 in May 2017, which is expected to grow by 24% by 2026. The median annual wage for all computer and information technology occupations was $84,580 in May 2017, which was higher than the median annual wage for all occupations of $37,690.

By 2020, Gartner predicts that 20% of enterprises will employ dedicated people to monitor and guide machine learning.
