Wondering what Artificial Intelligence, or AI, is all about? Where does data science leave off? And machine learning, how does that apply here? AI will likely define the next generation of software solutions. And, with all the talk and potentially confusing terminology out there about AI, we've got the perfect course. In this helpful overview, see what's really going on with AI, as you explore the concepts and technologies behind it.

Join expert Graeme Malcolm, and spend three or four hours per week for four weeks to learn how AI can be used to build smart apps that help organizations become more efficient and that can enrich people's lives. There are no programming prerequisites for this course, but Python experience might help, as would an understanding of variables, loops, branching, and other dev basics.

Watch Graeme's engaging lectures as you take your first steps in this ever-evolving field. And participate in hands-on activities, like building statistical models to predict health issues and creating an image-analysis app for still photos or videos. You'll even build AI that can recognize certain types of produce, along with a bot that can give you (and Cortana!) the punch line to a joke.

Discover how machine learning can be used to build predictive models for AI. Learn how software can be used to process, analyze, and extract meaning from natural language and to process images and video to understand the world the way we do. Find out how to build intelligent bots that enable conversational communication between humans and AI systems.

From data science to machine learning, deep learning, and artificial intelligence, the field is always changing and is more exciting all the time. Get hands-on, build these apps and bots, and check it out for yourself. At the end of the course, see follow-up resources that can help you determine next steps.

Note: The practical elements of this course are based on Microsoft Azure and require an Azure subscription. Instructions for signing up for a free trial subscription are provided with the course materials or, if you have one, you can use an existing Azure subscription.

In this course, you will learn how to:

  • Build simple machine learning models with Azure Machine Learning.
  • Use Python and Microsoft cognitive services to work with text, speech, images, and video.
  • Use the Microsoft Bot Framework to implement conversational bots.
