The free online course on artificial intelligence 'Elements of AI' launched in Finland in 2018 is now available for anyone interested in learning more about it. The course was originally launched to educate Finnish citizens, with about 1% of the country's population, which is made up of just over 5.5 million people according to Eurostat data, enrolling in it.
With artificial intelligence becoming increasingly popular, such a course can be very useful for anyone interested. Many companies are investing in this technology and are also encouraging anyone who wants to learn more about it. One such company is NVIDIA, which has partnered with a community of hardware engineers to launch a competition focused on robotics and artificial intelligence.
Named Universal Lego Sorting Machine, the machine was built with 10,000 Lego pieces.
The course was created by Reaktor, a technology company that has AI as one of its main focuses, and by the University of Helsinki, Finland's largest and oldest academic institution, and is divided into six parts – What is artificial intelligence? ?; Problem solving with artificial intelligence; Artificial intelligence in the real world; Machine learning; Neural networks; Implications for the future. Each part may take 5 to 10 hours to complete.
Many websites available today offer the basics of artificial intelligence, but this online course covers a variety of topics and also includes quizzes at the end of each part. Another detail is that in addition to addressing the technical aspects of AI, the course also addresses some philosophical aspects.
For those interested, the course is available in English and other European Union languages such as German and Swedish. Learn more and register at https://www.elementsofai.com/.
