What is AI?

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a branch of computer science. It is essentially teaching a computer how to mimic thinking and decision making like a human. Our goal is to create ‘thinking’ machines that can help us perform complex tasks faster and more efficiently. AI systems can analyze a lot of data, identify patterns, and make recommendations for us. Imagine a computer that can solve puzzles, recognize pictures, and even carry on an interesting conversation with people.

Artificial Intelligence (AI)

Why Should I Study AI?

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been around since the 1950s and, until recently, it was only popular in movies and other forms of electronic entertainment. Today, AI is finding its way into our personal and professional lives. Much like electricity, it may soon be a core part of most things we do. Learning how AI works, how to get the most out of it, and maybe even program it, can help enrich our personal lives and potentially open new doors in our professional paths.

How are Businesses Using AI?

Businesses of all types and sizes are increasingly adopting AI tools and systems to enhance their efficiencies, improve their decision-making, and hopefully gain a competitive edge. Some areas where AI is being used in business may include: customer service, marketing, data analysis, business insights and site maintenance, supply demand forecasting, talent acquisition, cybersecurity, sales and customer behavior insights, product development and quality assurance, disease prediction, personalized treatment recommendations, and operational automation.

Curriculum Overview

This program is designed to provide insights into Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) technologies, tools, and techniques. These insights can empower individuals and organizations to leverage AI and ML tools and technologies to strengthen implementations of data science and technological innovation. The program covers concepts of artificial intelligence, machine learning, AI in business, data science, AI in the cloud, modern applications of AI, and the future of AI. By the end of this program, students should have a broad understanding of AI and ML learning and how they impact people and organizations.
