An Introduction to AI
This is an introductory course to the field of artificial intelligence. Artificial intelligence started with systems where rules were encoded in a computer but now uses neural networks and deep learning. We will explore these methods, study real world applications, discuss what is beyond deep learning as well as implications to society as people participate in a human-centered AI world.
By the end of the course, learners will have a greater understanding of neural networks and deep learning so they can converse with neural network practitioners and companies; be able to critically evaluate AI news stories and technologies; and consider what the future of AI holds and what barriers need to be overcome.
