Free Online Course Teaching the Basics of Artificial Intelligence (AI)

In spring 2018, Reaktor, an AI and tech partner in Finland, and University of Helsinki came together with the aim of helping people be empowered, not threatened, by artificial intelligence. Together, they built Elements of AI to teach the basics of artificial intelligence to people from a wide range of backgrounds. About 40 percent of course participants are women, more than double the average for computer science courses. The self-paced courses combine theory with practical exercises. Part 1, An Introduction to AI, is a free online course for anyone interested in learning what AI is, what is possible (and not possible) with AI, and how it affects our lives—with no complicated math or programming required. Coming later in 2020, Part 2, Building AI, is a free online course in which participants learn more about the actual algorithms that make creating AI methods possible. Some basic Python programming skills are recommended to get the most out of the course.
