Our employees are participating in a free online course called Elements of AI that opens doors to the exciting world of artificial intelligence. The course was developed in 2018 by the University of Helsinki and Reaktor OY by university professors, data scientists and designers with the purpose to help better understand artificial intelligence and its social role. As it happens, “The Elements of AI” is already the most popular computer science course in the world, according to Class Central, a free online course aggregator, and surpasses the online courses of educational superstars such as Stanford, Harvard and MIT.
Until now, the online course could be taken in English, Finnish and Swedish languages. As of November 2019, “The Elements of AI” course will also be provided in Estonian by TalTech.
It does not matter how old you are, what is your educational background or what skills you possess – the course is made for everyone. It is perfect for picking up beginner level information on artificial intelligence as no prior programming or technological knowledge is needed.
The course consists of six topics and 25 exercises and covers several critical features of advanced AI technologies, such as neutral networks, machine learning and implications for the future. An added attraction is that students can complete the course at their own pace, so they can study alongside their work.
