Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a science and a set of computational technologies that are inspired by—but typically operate quite differently from—the ways people use their nervous systems and bodies to sense, learn, reason, and take action. In other word, Artificial intelligence is the branch of computer science concerned with making computers behave like humans.
The frightening, futurist portrayals of Artificial Intelligence that dominate films and novels, and shape the popular imagination, are fictional. In reality, AI is already changing our daily lives, almost entirely in ways that improve human health, safety, and productivity. Unlike in the movies, there is no race of superhuman robots on the horizon or probably even possible. And while the potential to abuse AI technologies must be acknowledged and addressed, their greater potential is, among other things, to make driving safer, help children learn, and extend and enhance people’s lives. In fact, beneficial AI applications in schools, homes, and hospitals are already growing at an accelerated pace. Major research universities devote departments to AI studies, and technology companies such as Apple, Facebook, Google, IBM, and Microsoft spend heavily to explore AI applications they regard as critical to their futures. Even Hollywood uses AI technologies to bring its dystopian AI fantasies to the screen. (ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE AND LIFE IN 2030 – REPORT OF THE 2015 STUDY PANEL)
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a field that has a long history but is still constantly and actively growing and changing. Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology is increasingly prevalent in our everyday lives. It has uses in a variety of industries from gaming, journalism/media, to finance, as well as in the state-of-the-art research fields from robotics, medical diagnosis, and quantum science.
Udacity was born out of a Stanford University experiment in which Sebastian Thrun and Peter Norvig offered their “Introduction to Artificial Intelligence” course online to anyone, for free. Over 160,000 students in more than 190 countries enrolled and not much later, Udacity was born.
Udacity, a pioneer in online education, is building “University by Silicon Valley”, a new type of online university that:
– teaches the actual programming skills that industry employers need today;
– delivers credentials endorsed by employers, because they built them;
– provides education at a fraction of the cost and time of traditional schools.
With industry giants – Google, AT&T, Facebook, Salesforce, Cloudera, etc. – Udacity offers Nanodegree credentials, designed so professionals become Web Developers, Data Analysts, or Mobile Developers. Supported by Udacity communities of coaches and students, Udacity students learn programming and data science through a series of online courses and hand-on projects that help them practice and build a convincing portfolio.
Stanford professors Peter Norvig and Sebastian Thrun are offering their ever popular Introduction to AI for free on the internet.
Norvig and Thrun, leaders in artificial intelligence, are using automated systems to help them at every level of the massive endeavour, from deciding which questions to answer to grading final exams.
In this course, you’ll learn the basics and applications of AI, including: machine learning, probabilistic reasoning, robotics, computer vision, and natural language processing.
It is free and it takes approximately 4 months. You can enroll in this course on Udacity and start learning there at once..
All courses’ videos have been uploaded by Udacity on Youtube..I would like to start sharing these videos with you on this website to reach more people.
