Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a field that is continually and actively growing and changing, expanding human capability beyond imagination. AI has captured the attention of scientists, engineers and business people across industries worldwide exploring ways to find insight and create value from smart applications and product.
This course presents the basics of AI from history to modern AI with the illustrative applications of endless possibilities. We will examine how AI already impacts every aspect of our daily lives and explore emerging AI based technologies with examples of applications and implications as well as opportunities. To understand some of the deeper concepts, such as natural language processing, face recognition and autonomous driving, we will explore several basic AI concepts: four major types of AI as well as machine learning, logic and planning, probabilistic technology, deep learning, and neural networks.
