Instructing machines to have intelligence similar to humans' intelligence and teaching them how to act and think as humans have long been a human dream. Artificial intelligence (AI) is a field of study that comes to corporate with new human lifestyles to fulfill human's desire to build machines that can think rationally. AI is accomplished by studying the patterns of the human brain and by analyzing the cognitive process. The outcome of these studies develops intelligent software and systems. AI has numerous applications in today's world; from self-driving cars to a simple chatbot or even a YouTube video recommender, or the Google translate, it can be seen everywhere. AI has transformed today's businesses and industries' attitudes toward some tasks that humans usually had done.
TechClass Fundamentals of Artificial Intelligence online course is a gentle introduction to AI's basic concepts and methodologies from theoretical and practical perspectives. The course covers essential intuitions behind different AI methods (e.g., machine learning and deep learning) as well as the business-side topics, like the implications of AI and its effect on today's industry. By the end of this course, you will be familiar with modern AI aspects as your very first steps on the journey to AI. You will learn to think outside the box using AI and present AI-based solutions using appropriate methods discussed in the course.
