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.
