Free Dutch AI course

Did you always wanted to know the basic principles of Artificial Intelligence (AI)? This is your chance. After months of development, you can now participate in a free five hour Dutch course to get a better understanding of AI.

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.
