Generative AI for Everyone: A Free Course from AI Pioneer Andrew Ng

Andrew Ng–an AI pio­neer and Stan­ford com­put­er sci­ence professor–has released a new course called Gen­er­a­tive AI for Every­one. Designed for a non-tech­ni­cal audi­ence, the course will “guide you through how gen­er­a­tive AI works and what it can (and can’t) do. It includes hands-on exer­cis­es where you’ll learn to use gen­er­a­tive AI to help in day-to-day work.”  The course also explains “how to think through the life­cy­cle of a gen­er­a­tive AI project, from con­cep­tion to launch, includ­ing how to build effec­tive prompts,” and it dis­cuss­es “the poten­tial oppor­tu­ni­ties and risks that gen­er­a­tive AI tech­nolo­gies present to indi­vid­u­als, busi­ness­es, and soci­ety.” Giv­en the com­ing preva­lence of AI, it’s worth spend­ing six hours with this course (the esti­mat­ed time need­ed to com­plete it). You can audit Gen­er­a­tive AI for Every­one for free, and watch all of the lec­tures at no cost. If you would like to take the course and earn a cer­tifi­cate, it will cost $49.

Gen­er­a­tive AI for Every­one will be added to our col­lec­tion, 1,700 Free Online Cours­es from Top Uni­ver­si­ties.

    It’s a bold con­cept giv­en the key trait of the tar­get audi­ence for this tech­nol­o­gy is an aggres­sive dis­po­si­tion to ignore what it is and how it works exact­ly. Then again, the chief com­mer­cial appli­ca­tion on an user lev­el as of now seems to be releas­ing paid cours­es about it so I guess there’s that.

    I do not know much about AI, but want to get as much as pos­si­ble for AI begin­ner.

  • Reid Schumacher says:

    It’s not real­ly free if you have to sign up and pay for the series. I know we live in the post truth era but I expect more from open cul­ture. Do bet­ter.

    At the end of the entry, open cul­ture makes it quite clear you can do the course as an audit for free or pay $49 for a cer­tifi­cate. Audit­ing a course allows a stu­dent to take a class with­out the ben­e­fit of a grade or cred­it for a course.
    I haven’t done a Cours­era course how­ev­er, as per the Cours­era sup­port web­page, “When you audit a course you’ll be able to see most of the course mate­ri­als for free, but you won’t be able to sub­mit cer­tain assess­ments or get grades for your work. You won’t get a Course Cer­tifi­cate, but you can pay for one at any time dur­ing or after the course.”
    Sounds free to me.
