Artificial Intelligence (AI) is expected to continue to permeate various industries in years to come. In fact, according to a 2020 PWC study, 86 per cent of companies surveyed said that AI will become a “mainstream technology” at their organization by 2021.

From the narrow AI applications embedded in your phone to Artificial General Intelligence (AGI), you will learn to distinguish the subtleties of AI systems. Additionally, you will be able to characterize the types of existing models behind the applications, and analyze the human, data, and technological resources necessary to develop such systems. Last, but certainly not least, this course teaches you the limitations and ethical issues, including biases, that can exist in AI applications and how to detect them. Throughout your studies, you will have an opportunity to see AI in action through use cases that showcase the adoption of AI in several industries. Your challenge will be to explore how you can use AI to help solve problems in your everyday life and in your organization through case studies and other projects. This will help you better understand AI and evaluate the impacts of AI on your daily life. In this course, you won't just learn the basics of AI but actively participate in learning all the different facets that make up AI.

This is an online, synchronous course.
