Artificial Intelligence (AI) is all around us, radically altering the professional landscape. Led by expert Thomas Palazzolo, this course demystifies the central concepts behind AI to help students understand the effects of AI applications on their industries and discern which solutions might benefit their own work. Demonstrating the ubiquitous nature of AI, the course delves into AI applications in areas as wide-ranging as healthcare, robotics, law, the auto industry, supply chain, and social media. Students will learn about the execution of AI algorithms, natural language processing, data collection, and the use of videogames as a testing ground for new technologies. The course also covers privacy and regulatory questions about AI, and students are encouraged to share scenarios from their own profession.
