Professional Short Course 1.0 - Demystifying AI
Curious about big data and machine learning and how they could revolutionise the way you work?
Demystifying AI is our first intensive short course, comprising 30 hours of workshops held over two parts. Participants will gain a basic business and technical understanding of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the opportunities and risks that need to be carefully navigated along the way.
We’ll set the scene with an introduction to AI and data science then move into deep learning, clustering and the nitty gritty of how to build AI projects. We’ll also unpack some of the big social issues around ethics, privacy, fake news and what the future holds.
This is a rare opportunity to get hands-on with AI technologies and be personally mentored by a global expert in the field. You’ll also have access to post-programme coaching to help you turn your learning into practice right away and start reaping the benefits. You’ll also become part of our alumni programme of meetups and workshops for continued support and development.
Course begins 10 November 2020 and will be split into two parts:
Demystifying AI Part A:
This part provides a detailed introduction to AI suitable for both team leaders and tech people. We will use real world application examples, introducing major classes of algorithms and requirements, how to implement AI projects, monitor and track progress, and make corrections as needed to ensure successful project delivery.
Part A has no prerequisites
Demystifying AI Part B:
This second part of the course will be suitable for tech people, and will provide understanding of available open source tools for building AI and data systems, with hands-on sessions in the lab.
Part B prerequisites: Material covered in Part A. No programming skills needed.
