Online Short-Course | In collaboration with Columbia University

Artificial Intelligence

Learn the fundamentals of Artificial Intelligence (AI), and apply them.

Design intelligent agents to solve real-world problems including, search, games, machine learning, logic, and constraint satisfaction problems. What do self-driving cars, face recognition, web search, industrial robots, missile guidance, and tumour detection have in common?

They are all complex real-world problems being solved with applications of intelligence (AI). This course will provide a broad understanding of the basic techniques for building intelligent computer systems and an understanding of how AI is applied to problems.

You will learn about the history of AI, intelligent agents, state-space problem representations, uninformed and heuristic search, game playing, logical agents, and constraint satisfaction problems

Hands-on experience will be gained by building a basic search agent. Adversarial search will be explored through the creation of a game and an introduction to machine learning includes work on linear regression.

This course is part of the Artificial Intelligence MicroMasters® Programme, offered through the edX® platform.
