Making Sense of AI

MSAI: Making Sense of Artificial Intelligence

Backdrop: 

We are now in the 4th Industrial Age and while Artificial Intelligence has been compared to being the new electricity, it’s availability through the cloud and mobile devices is much more universal.

Since AI helps automate tasks which were earlier done by humans, it’s potential to enhance almost all human activities is enormous, and that is why we have adopted an “AI for all” policy, rather than AI for a privileged few.

This is an introductory  one week course for anyone who is curious to know what are the various aspects of AI. That is why it has been given the title ” Making Sense of Artificial Intelligence”. Throughout the course, there will be links to and information about books, articles and videos to learn more. 

This course is therefore a fascinating introduction for the curious, with substantial guidance on more for the serious. 

This course is an attempt to answer the question, in this climate of the hype around the topic. The better we understand AI, the greater the sense of awe at the sheer complexity of the brain, and the amazing algorithms that nature has devised to solve one of the hardest problems known to man. What we see around us are examples of ‘ narrow AI’ or ‘weak AI’. But the quest for ‘strong AI’ is going to be a long journey…. but it’s perhaps the greatest scientific voyage that we can take now….
