Free Dutch AI course
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is not something of the future, it hides in many different aspects of our day to day life. The initiators aim to inform as many Dutch about the basics of AI as possible by providing this online course. ‘We think that AI would have a huge impact, even bigger than the computer and internet, while this remains a very mysterious topic for many’, says Iris Koolen (Elephant Road), the developer of the online course.
The course includes 8 different tracks. It starts with ‘meeting’ the world of AI and during the tracks it takes you a little bit more into a deeper understanding. Questions like ‘Is a search engine also AI?’ and ‘How does my job fit into a future with AI?’ will be answered during the course. AI is not only exciting and offers opportunities, it also is extremely interesting. After these five hours of education, you will really understand what AI means.
You can already subscribe for the course at www.ai-cursus.nl. After completing the course, you will receive an official certificate. The eights tracks that you will find on their website are:
- Take a look in the world of AI
- What is AI?
- Is a search engine also AI?
- Machine learning
- Deep learning
- AI in the day to day life
- AI and the rule
- The jobs of the future
