Artificial Intelligence for Everyone: An Introductory Course from Andrew Ng, the Co-Founder of Coursera

If you follow edtech, you know the name Andrew Ng. He’s the Stanford computer science professor who co-founded MOOC-provider Coursera and later became chief scientist at Baidu. Since leaving Baidu, he’s been working on several artificial intelligence projects, including a series of Deep Learning courses that he unveiled in 2017. And now comes AI for Everyone–an online course that makes artificial intelligence intelligible to a broad audience.

In this largely non-technical course, students will learn:

  • The meaning behind common AI terminology, including neural networks, machine learning, deep learning, and data science.
  • What AI realistically can–and cannot–do.
  • How to spot opportunities to apply AI to problems in your own organization.
  • What it feels like to build machine learning and data science projects.
  • How to work with an AI team and build an AI strategy in an organization.
  • How to navigate ethical and societal discussions surrounding AI.

The four-week course takes about eight hours to complete. You can audit it for free. However if you want to earn a certificate–which you can then share on your LinkedIn profile, printed resumes and CVs–the course will run $49.

AI for Everyone will be added to our list of Free Computer Science courses, a subset of our larger collection, 1,700 Free Online Courses from Top Universities.
