About the course
Artificial intelligence (AI) is inspired by our understanding of how the human brain learns and processes information and has given rise to powerful techniques known as neural networks and deep learning. This course will provide an introductory overview of these AI techniques. Additionally, we will inspect what is beyond deep learning and implications to society as humans participate in a human-centered AI world. Through hands-on exercises, we will discover how current AI platforms compare with how the brain works, how systems actually “learn,” and how to build and apply neural networks. We will also discuss the real-world applications of neural networks. By the end of the course, students will have a greater understanding of neural networks and deep learning so they can: (1) converse with neural network practitioners and companies; (2) be able to critically evaluate AI news stories and technologies; and (3) consider what the future of AI can hold and what barriers need to be overcome.
