About This Class

Are you interested in learning about artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML)? Have you wondered how these amazing fields can help you or your business? If yes, then join Alex Castrounis to learn all about these topics and more!

Artificial intelligence and machine learning are helping people and businesses achieve key goals, obtain actionable insights, drive critical decisions, and create exciting, new, and innovative products and services.

This class is relatively high-level so that a non-technical executive can understand everything, but should be very useful to a technical practitioner as well.

This class will

  • Give examples of common business and customer goals that can drive artificial intelligence and machine learning solutions
  • Explain artificial intelligence and machine learning, with a heavy emphasis on why they should be used
  • Provide an overview of the different types of tasks and algorithms associated with artificial intelligence and machine learning
  • Describe the typical artificial intelligence and machine learning process, along with important tradeoffs and considerations
  • Discuss real-world examples of companies and products that are using artificial intelligence and machine learning by category. Categories include:
    • Recommender systems
    • Prediction and classification
    • Computer vision and recognition
    • Clustering and anomaly detection
    • Natural language
    • Hybrid and miscellaneous applications

I hope you enjoy!
