Introduction to Artificial Intelligence
For decades, artificial intelligence (AI) has been a staple of science fiction stories, but thanks to modern advances in computational capacity and storage capabilities, it's becoming a reality. Today, there are examples of artificial intelligence all around us. The purpose of this course is to provide you with an artificial intelligence practical knowledge foundation.
This course will introduce you to various forms of artificial intelligence (AI) and how we interact with AI as consumers in applications like chatbots and recommendation engines. You'll see how AI provides analytics in business and consider industries that may be transformed or even disrupted by AI implementations. You'll go under the hood to see how computers can "learn" using artificial neural networks and various forms of machine learning. You will review AI applications such as natural language processing, forecasting, and robotics. You'll also learn about the AI development process and how AI will affect the workforce. Finally, you'll consider some of the ethical factors in AI deployment.
After completing this course, the learner should be able to:
- Define artificial intelligence (AI)
- Describe the technological origins and general history of AI
- Learn ways AI can transform and disrupt certain industries
- Describe the relationship between humans and AI
- Differentiate between fictional and real-life applications of AI
